Yes, forward battery position as shown in the photo. Also, it is worth noting that this photo was prior to the TCS weekend and the setup was way off when this picture was taken

Thanks, looks great!


I have tried few tricks to get paint stick to abs/wings:

When I paint the wings I usually use rattle can plastic primer(for 1:1 car bumpers etc..), then white primer -or skip the primers and use just faswhite (if I wont use the body in rainy days. water ruines the faskolor stuff on wings but somehow not on the lexan ), and then the main color. Works every time.

Damn Marty, that looks pretty cool. I think I'd stick with the flat black...it looks devious.

The flat black paint looks like a top speed run car for the Bonneville salt flats.
