Front shock towers are intriguing. I wonder if they can use a stock upper shock heim, or if they will use one that pivots more. Maybe a 16 car doesn't have too much of a shock angle change because of the short arms.

How's the shifter going to work? Or does it still need to have a hole/tunnel cut into the aluminum?

Nice car though. Looks clean. Whoever's it is they've got some long legs by the looks of things.

I guess it's only a mock-up tank, real one should have a tunnel

the fuel cell is not complete yet it will have a tube style tunnel. Front shock mounts are standard issue on our Penhall 1600 no need for a N.A.S.A approved bearing standard FOX ones work fine.

Hey I had a few questions bout the car, if anyone, who knows, could answer. Did we ever find out who's car this is going to be? Are they really running the 2.5's up front, 2.0's are soo much lighter and work perfect on a 1600. And why did they do the front shock towers like that opposed to like the "loop" kind of shock towers to make them double sheered, some don't find that necessary though. And a tube seat in a 1600 car! OUCH! I have thought bout it because they are way light but I wonder if that hurts.
