Nothing is ruined. I check your post on a daily basis waiting for a video or update. Or, how you plan on starting that beast.

with the motor turned around there is room to insert this device to connect to the flywheel which turns the motor ,,, really works well just need a power invert er to plug it in , looking for a cordless unit but not found it yet . as far as reassemble of LL im making a new motor plate so i will b able to use small spur gear like a 38 t right now im using a 48t and its fast ,,,,,, no not giving up the speed just yet but trust me its fast with 48 t ,,,, i have built a 43t ,40t and 38 t so i will have options just need to modify a motor plate and mount to get gear mesh right also working on the new steering set up so it will driv better at these blistering speeds ,,, i think Koolskillet can comment on how hard they are to steer at these speeds ,,,,,,,,,,any way im about ready to reassemble of LL (Lower Lighter ) , Stay tuned ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I know you won't give up any numbers but do you have any other information or videos on your truck? The truck looks off the hook

Thanks for posting the car photos. It looks great and I'm sure that the sound of that 440 matches the cars looks.

That thing is looking killer, I love the invisible shocks. Can't wait to see what it gets for topspeed, I am rooting for you. 6.5lbs[:-], that is an awesome weight, not a chance I can even come close to that I am thinking my machine will be at least a couple pounds heavier[]. I will give you a shout tomorrow in the am.
