Some really tasty mods going on there, Oldschool!

That front end is very unusual, at least, I've never seen under the bonnet of a Firenza, how does the suspension and steering mount? That trans tunnel is enormous too!

Sorry, I'm not familiar with this car, are you building it for drag or track racing?

I've always fancied the idea of twins myself!! :lol:

the front end is not stock firenza
The stock suspension isnt great

Its built for drags, and raced the 2010 season.
This year we decided to turbo charge the thing, so many other upgrades had to be made

Ah, I thought those were wheelie bar brackets on the axle but didn't want to make an ass of myself. :oops:

What times were you running last year and what do you hope to achieve with the new setup.

Or is that 'top secret'? :mrgreen:

That first line of my previous post is one of those you can read two different ways. :mrgreen: I meant it the other way. :lol:

Good luck with the build, it looks very professional and is gonna kick ass!!
