It's been a long ride so far, but Project HPattern is almost ready for pickup. There are just a few minor details to iron out then I will be heading to pick this beast up from Precision Chassis.
So, there is still much to do, and it is going to be very very tight to make "World Cup Finals - Import vs Domestic" in November, but that is still my goal. The next step is getting the header fabricated, and then I'll be doing all the other fab work.
Then there is paint and body, and then wiring. PHEWWW still a ton to do and only 4 months left!!! I am nervous, but hopeful.
So, without further talk, let's let Precision chassis work speak for itself below!
Here is the dash, big thanks to Cody Philips Racing for this beautiful piece! Also custom steering column setup, much lighter than the stock setup. Race car stuff!!!
Ready for me to sit in it and air shift it while making turbo and antilag noises.
Some inner fender work for better tire clearance
Rear bumper on the car
Extra bracing added under the inner fender where no one else ever touches these cars. You'd never even know its there. My Ultimate IRS tubular chromoly subframe sneaking in these shots as well.
So hopefully the next updates will be details on the new turbo setup fabrication. Stay tuned! And yes, that is a V160 in the car. I had them make crossmembers for both transmissions, as I do plan on making a few passes chasing the V160/synchro record... might not be this year, as primary goal is WCF but it will be happening.
The goals for this car are as follows:
- RETAIN SOME STREETABILITY (want to take it to a few car shows a year)
- HPATTERN TRANS
