I pulled the trigger
« on: August 07, 2014, 09:57:45 PM »
Ok all you buggy loving fool's.  I have crossed over to the dark side and swapped ends.  this car was my first choice to call and find out if it was still for sale. but had a hard time pulling the trigger because of the rear engine.  Have talked countless minuets with John at out front about the handling and he assures me It will turn as tight as a mid.  He should know because this is what he drives kind of.  My new to me ride is a HRT and John's car's are Funco but there should not me that much difference.  This car will need nothing but my touch with some paint and graphics. All the rest have been something that I would have had to strip and completely rework.  The last black one with the yellow flame the guy still has not given me and addy that I can send some one over to look at it. So Here is the new to me HRT

Green PJ's go with the car.

The new yellow banana suits will be perfect.  From now on must wear yellow banana suit to eat Fast's ice cream.  No worries, ice is well worth the 10,000,000 Youtube views you'll get wearing the outfit.  ;D ;D :wwp:

The car is just 13.9 long with and 84 front track and a 96 inch rear track.  Car should handle fine tail dragger or not.  What I mite lose in the turn I'll make up when I get if straightened out.  8)  I don't think I could have found a cleaner ready to dune car for the money.  I have talked to John at OutFront at length about the engine and the handling and I am happy with what he had to say.  BBB spared no expense when he had John put the motor in and tune it.  John made some other changes to the car also not just the motor.  the six cyl subi has a lot of low end grunt.
