Figured I would post up some pictures of the new build. I've been in and out of drag racing for almost 40 years now and have grown board with bracket racing. For the last 10 or so years I have been fascinated with 1/8 mile heads up racing and decided it was time to make the leap. Car is being built primarily to run OLS because it is the most open rule class and there are plenty of races in our area. This is a two year plan, if things go well the car may be out sometime next season but the plan is for the 2018 season. Weight reduction is the focus on this build since we all know how heavy the S197 platform is, goal is to get below 2700 lbs. I probably could have bought a Fox body already done and been racing this year but I like to do things the hard way. Here are few early stage build pics.
