I have not come up with a number yet, I am getting quotes on mulling and production cost at the moment, but I am thinking it should be around 50-65 bucks, I am trying to do everything I can to get the cost down, but I will let everyone know when I get it all worked out, It isn't as easy as most people may think, especially if you want to make more than one.

Since he drives a Serpent, I would have to say it will be a short chassis.

right now I am making them for the gt1 wheelbase, I am working on the plan to also get them made for the Gt2 wheelbase, but I am not sure yet when that will be done, it's all about the cost of having them produced. I also have yet another body in the planning and this one will be for the gt2 length.

Very nice 2 things I would like to suggest. First is exhaust stinger exit strategy, second fueling hole cut out this creates a big flaw in aerodynamics in most cases when using a fuel gun or other wise.

Would love to try it out!

Default I have been gone for a little

Hello guys, I just wanted to let you know that I haven't let this project go. I was called away on business in California and I have been out there for about a month and return home next week. The body however is in its final stages and is about ready to be cut and molded, my aim is still to have a few prototypes done in time for the Byrons race in Joliet. Hopefully I can make this date. Thanks for all of the comments and suggestion from fellow gt racers.
