I've been working on this thing on/off for the past 10 months, I thought some of you guys might be interested in seeing some off-road fab techniques utilized in something other than off-road. All I know is that I have had a ton of fun building it and I can't wait till we get it done! Enjoy......

Very cool! I have 3 questions, Have you ever tested or compared "remote" turbos to a traditional setup mounted in the engine bay? How much effect does it have on turbo lag, if any? I assume there is an aftermarket ECU, which setup did you use? Lastly, why do alot of custom cars use panhard bars? I can't get over the fact that the rear axle swings side to side as it cycles?

Thanks!
What I have found is that you usually size the turbo a little smaller when it is remote mounted. If you design the kit well, you will have no more lag than if the turbos where mounted traditionally. We are running a stock ECU with a chip and a handful of dyno pulls. Makes bitchen power the way it is, but, we still might go to a haltech before too long.

Panhard, well you got to remember that a road race car does not have the wheel travel an off-road car does. Because of this, a panhard bar is acceptable.

Thank you very much. Fire roads and dirt track tires, I am down.

Right about 950 at the motor, by the time it gets to the wheels, 749.

I dont really like road cars, but ill make an exception this time :D
:D

Afco and koni are correct. Ohlins or Penske's at all corners to come by next season.
The class is called "American Iron", sanctioned by N.A.S.A. This would be an AIX car which stands for "American Iron Extreme". AIX is nearly no-holds-barred aside from leaving certain sheet metal in place.
