Also, if you want to shave some seriuos weight send me the diff outdrives, solid axles and the whole 2spd tranny. The best thing you can do to these cars is minimize the rotational weight.

Wow!!! Did you do that yourself?

I was working at Revelation Raceway in Ontario California this weekend, and heard a man talking to the Ofna representative about a new engine made by Palimaris. Have you used that motor yet? Did you use a cnc machine to do that?

I havent had the chance to drive a Palmari P12 yet, unfortunately . Yes I did that with a CNC machine, its a stock NTC3 chassis. Like I said, theres a lot of weight to be shaved off the diff and tranny, unfortunately I dont have any pics of those. But the tranny is a lot lighter than the FT tranny, and if you run a Solid axle, I can shave a lot of weight off those.
