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.

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.
