wow.

(i really should take my hand out of my pants.)

what i dig about this is how the chassis compliments the body. there's something about quasi-isotropic carbon fiber lying under a 66 camaro shell that just doesn't jive.

Thanks for the comments, guys! You're right about the motor leads, I recently purchased those clear silicone connector end covers which I'll install once they arrive. Wouldn't want those leads shorting out on the rear shock tower!
