I don't want to sound to harsh, please don't take this the wrong way, but if this was my car, I would be plastering some high speed video of it running.
Every time someone post's up a similar project like this, they show nice pictures, some start up video's, maybe a slow moving pass, but why not video an all out run??

I had the opportunity to pick up a 24lb thurst turbine engine and thought about fitting it in my 1/4 scale dragster, but I just can't see it, the dragster as it sits now can do 90+mph , I have yet to see any of these turbine projects do anything close...
Can someone post up some inspirational videos of it moving?

So what was wrong with the old chassie?
Did it warp when you crashed it?
