so i sold my diesel powered 27 coupe. it made 855hp and 1505 ft/lbs torque, and those were my goals, so it was time to sell.
ive had a bunch of people ask what is next..... and though its not rat rod in nature, it IS awesome and every child's dream who was raised on hot-wheels.
the same night i sold the Rat Rod, i went and bought a MINT 2003 hayabusa street bike.... to chop up as my donor. ive been collecting the proper wheels, steering wheel, turbo, intercooler, radiators, and all the parts and bits over the last 2 weeks.
im building a 1960 Ferrari 156 (shark nose) Formula-1 race car....... that will be streetable and licensed.
chromoly tube frame, 300hp turbo 1300cc hayabusa motor, street bike coilovers, real center 'knock-off' wire wheels, carbon fiber and aluminum body, and so on.
my goal is 300hp and no more than the original cars weight of 960lbs
it will be alot of fab work to make things mate up and get the body just right, but it should be epic if i can pull it off.
heres my progress so far, with lots of parts coming in the mail.
