Drive train is complete ! YES!

After some months of prep work (design), figuring, measuring, cutting, refitting, cutting again this is where the drivetrain is at. We have parts from Winters, Wilwood, Strange Engineering, Other land Speed racers, Racing Junk, E-bay, Victory motorsports inventory, England, Various Machine shops and most importantly Schmidt’s New London Auto Salvage! I think we have a pretty bullet proof drivetrain. final drive can go to 1.2-1 ratio. So at 5000RPM that equals 312MPH. Lots of minds have been involved in the drivetrain, Charlie, Marty, Burton, handled this pretty well together I might add. Lots of brainstorming all along too thanks to everyone that put the effort into this. Oh yeah Bob did a great job with the Powder coating too! This will all be covered up tonight with the intercooler, tank, header and piping so I will post that tmrw night!

The Starter, clutch release, and Trans Shifting have all been tested and work as desired too. Final hubs are being machined right now as they needed to be custom machined out of Billet. Studs and wheel nuts are coming from ARP. Caliper brackets are also custom as well. Why would we think we could do it any other way and have it fit the car? And the “Quick change” rearend is quick…..after you remove the parachute tube….
