For anyone who has been following my build...

I have started vlogging on YouTube. I plan to do vlogs for any future mods, repairs, racing events and maybe some car shows. As some of you may know, my goal is to eventually hit 12's in the 1/4 mile running an all motor setup in the car, and try to come as close as possible to dominating my autocross class. So, be sure to check it out, subscribe, and watch my progress to see if i can hit my goals! I dont always think to jump on here and update all the time like i used to, so just throwing it out there for those of you who may have wondered what happened with the build and want to keep track.

I subscribed too. Looks like a lot of fun. I should look into autocrossing around my area.

Autocross is a blast! Check out some of my more recent videos, especially the All Ford Nationals Real Street shootout videos. I won it this year and it was by far the best my car had ever felt on the track. It was pretty intense.

Yup, full interior. Two reasons. Wife says I'm not allowed to gut it (and my 15mo old loves to ride in it) and its part of the sleeper status of it. Pop the hood, you can see its clean, but the engine cover still says 2.5L (when its actually a 3L) and they see a car with some bolt ons, wheels, and a full interior and just think its a street car until they hear it start. The idle on the car is just flat out nasty, but i dont have enough compression ratio to make the most power for those cams. I'm at about 11.24:1 compression and i need to be closer to 13:1. Soon.

Idk man, if you have a DD I would gut it, and do two sparco or bride seats. Shed 200-300 pounds. It would help you A LOT. And like you said, the sleeper status goes out the window once they hear it idle haha.

Trust me, the idea has crossed my mind. Right now i have my eyes on some Corbeau Forzas, which will shave about 80lbs out of it. I dont want to gut the car until i'm ready for a roll bar/cage. To me, it just looks wrong to have a gutted race car with no cage.
