    I'm gonna use the 67 chassis, the 10 is just too long, wide, and heavy.

    Thanks, this is why I have been following your build closely. I'm especially interested in your front suspension.

    Are you planning to box the frame? If not that 500hp is going to twist that thing like a pretzel!

    It doesn't appear that he has the radiator for the SRT10 chassis, based on the pictures that he posted.

    The radiator in my RC measures 29" wide x 32" tall x 2" thick.

    I have started already, but mostly in the research dept. I finished disassembling the 10 chassis in order to try and sell off some parts I don't need. Right now I have been doing tons of measuring and trying to design my own front suspension. I'll post up some pics as soon as I have something worth posting.

    Not alot happening. I had the rear narrowed 6", and I'm having a set of custom spindles machined. They will allow me to use the SRT big brakes with an aftermarket mustang two type front suspension.

    You find a motor yet?
