Hi Joel!

I can't wait to see this finished, especially as I've seen the other pics as well!

I'll pre-book my passenger ride around Rudskogen now if I can?

I think you should bring it to the UK this year for some of the shows. It would be awesome to get it out on the circuits, although I don't think the marshalls will like your driving style!

Failing that, jump on a plane and we'll just go out on the beer instead!

Talk to you soon

Hmm.. well in terms of working time i'd say about a year or so, but we had some struggling to get all parts and lost some motivation for periods , so it has been about 2 years in the garage now..
Remember that i dont work with this stuff, have a 11year old daugter i have to take care of, AND as the happily divorced man i am , I like to party! So it it not that easy to get time for evertything!!

Answer good enough?

Amazing. Will be awesome when completed.

Quick question though: What type of metal are you using for the rollcage and the strengthening parts on the inner wings/rear suspension?

No you can't, and the koneiggegg engine is not up for our power levels, so that's why we only use its special block, wich is very good.

The engine of this car is based on the 32 v 4.6 mustang engine, though 4.7 liters in the 'egg , and 5.0 litres in ours due to larger diameter liners, erm...and pistons obviously.. ;-P

All inn all,this is also quite expensive, i will not talk numbers... i just get in such a bad mood ;-P

I don't know what is is in english, but it is the kind of metal described for use within rollcage prodution in race cars. =)

There will be a tube from the roll cage down to the crosmember that secures sidweays movement , instead of the inner wings.
New inner wings are made from carbon fibre.
