Bryce and team, this is one impressive piece of work. i love the body in white actually being white. first thing i though is, "man, i hope it's got a red type R badge on it somewhere." and no, i'm not kidding. i think it would be awesome.

Yesterday's stint at Wryann's shop got some actual numbers and the engine hasn't exploded...yet.

Current weight: 1250 (expected to be a bit over 1300 complete plus driver with about a 40/60 weight split)
Current power: 182 hp (at the wheels, uncorrected, E85 w/ ~10 lbs boost)

Car ships in ~28 hours and needs about that many man-hours to finish getting assembled. We also need to do a clutch dump test to make sure our welded axles will hold. Yikes!!!

Great build. What class should this run in?

That figures out to 6.8 lb / hp.

I typed that into Google, and it turns out a 2005 Ferrari F430 has the same power to weight ratio.

The everything class. It's potentially street legal, probably has lights and blinkers, and originally was some form of production street car.

5 hrs in 3 days ...get some sleep, man!

It looks amazing. Top quality build, and as cool as anything I've seen on the internets. The kind of build that gets passed around car forums and talked about with words like 'epic', and 'awesome'.

I know that feeling. I pulled 8 all nighters in ten days back in college trying to finish a project.

Since when do you describe shifts by when they end? "I worked the morning shift" doesn't mean you got off at 8am. C'mon son.

That just blew my mind, may I ask HOW you did all that? Where did you get all of the expertise to know how to complete it? This is AMAZING.
