Here is a pic of my pop with the car as of yesterday (painted the new nose Sunday).

5 days till speedweek.

Last year I had a violent and unpredictable handling issue (attributed to excessive frontal DF and lift in the rear).
The solution was to stretch the nose (from nose tip to spill plate is just over 17’) and blend the air around (including under) it as apposed to forcing it all over the top.

Last year I ran a basically stock 1300cc busa motor and it was my intent to run the turbo busa motor this year (550+ whp) and then run a no compromises big bore busa our 3rd year. Because the car had such a bad handling issue (we never got the over 5K in 5th the car reds at 11K and is a 6 speed) and because the car is almost 100% changed I opted to run the no compromised big bore and run the turbo next year. This way I can gradually step the HP.....after all the car may have another issue once it gets to speed.

This years motor is making 250 whp on pump.
1507 cc busa
Ward big valve head
billet crank
carrillo H beams
Bazzaz Fi controller with self mapper
hand built header
carbon fiber airbox
larger TBs
billet output, gears and clutch
(and everything else that could be done!)


I had also wanted to run a 100 shot of spray....time and my lack of experience with No2 prevented me from doing it this year.

I WILL run the turbo motor next year….currently it is in the shop with a nice layer of dust. It is my intent to get myself and my pop in the 2 club and that motor is the one to do it.

Obviously a Sports MODIFIED of some sort... Quite a stretch from the original wheelbase.  Is there a limit?

Best of luck to you both... The 2 club with a 1300 or 1500 cc motor... that would be something!

Ha! I love it! Pure custom, all the way with a strong hint of X1/9 starting at the doors. Nice work! Do you have progress photos of the power plant and the front end in process? Trying to imagine myself driving that rig on the flats, scares me to death!!

Hey Jonny, you be careful in that thing. We want to see just what you've got in store for your next mod.

We were all rooting for you.

Any chance I could get the story for our club's magazine? I you would like to send something to me, I would make sure that it got placed. Nothing like seeing your efforts in print.
Thanks

Thanks for the question.

We are running in the MS class (mod sports) with an H motor (1000-1523cc). The max wheelbase allowed in the MS class is 130", I have 129.5". Originally in the design stage I was going to run a 12" front tread width and at the time was legal. Lets just say that rules were changed before I got started that basically said that this was not going to be allowed (much rather someone say its not OK before I get to the salt and the SCTA says I can run but will have to come back next year with a different nose!). I dont know that my announcement had anything to do with the rule change.....but I cant say that it didnt as well. All for the best in the end.

The frontal track is now a "legal" 27".
