Looking good. I'm hoping to build a speed car sometime this year. Not sure how much traction you'll get with those tires tho.. Looking forward to more.

wow that thing looks insane . how long is the wheelbase on that .
what did you use to cut the carbon fiber? and did you have todo anything to the edges ? was gonna order one for my car but their $140 and $80 doesnt sound bad if I can do it might self .
Goodluck the way your build lookin looks like you should hit 200mph

Lol thanks.the carbon fiber panel was cut using just a dremel cut off wheel and few round files.its very easy to get the shapes you need.used thin CA glue around the eadges so the panel would not split from dings.i just need few small things to have the car 100% as of now it still needs a little more work but hey the hard part is over.ill just let it sit on my table and let my friends drool over it every time they come over.
