    I know this thread will split the members in three groups, the ones that will like this project, other that will dislike it and the ones (like myself) that are not 100% sure !

    Owner: Dodgeaxi (Forum name)
    Truck : Dodge SRT10 RC
    Project : THE RATRAM

    Its quit self explaining what his route of mods will be, but he has some other aspects also in mind, like reducing weight, going with 20" steel wheels and loooooowwww....

    The whole SRT aerodynamic parts will be taken away, he even considers to take away the bed :dontknow:, and some other parts.
    Racing seats will be installed and some other goodies :)

    Due to the fact that the truck is still in the container he started with the wheels..... Now you can imagine how the rest will look like....

    I must admit by the information i got so far on the project, it will be hmmmmm, ......damn ugly, but lightweight and fast....

    I am also waiting for news on it. Once i have photos i will write up whats done and what the next steps are....

    Alex (dodgeaxi) is really serious on this project and selling everything that has to do something with the look of an original SRT.

    News to be updated very soon.....:rock:

    Dan, the info is in my German SRT forum and i am sending the info parallel (live) to this forum in englisch due to language barriers of some of our guys.
    We all want to keep track with you guys and i am the nominated one to
    share the info in englisch with you :D

    That does look cool, but it still looks like a camero. From what i'm gathering he's completly changeing the look. Be interesting what this things is going to turn out looking like.

    he needs to do it correctly not half ass like that craparo ..

    put the body on the floor, get the wheels up nice and high over the sides big tall white walls, chop the hell out of the roof, remove the front end just leaeve the grill and lights supported and lose the bed or shorten and chop it big time..

    if its just a half ass like this craparo it will suck balls
