Wheels arrived today-just like in the "rendering" 8" x17"s in the front. I had been considering next width up, 9.5", simply too much for this car to swallow, in front. Got the Magenehelic +/- hg gage, to discover high/low pressure areas,(high speed pursuit). Tear-drop tail lights,led's,hidden behind rear grille-in the air exit through grille. Got aero, hot air exits,(2) for top of hood. Huffaker f-glass should be here soon. Anyone have a vacum mold for vortex generators ? Yeah, the Huffaker fiberglass is done ! Hood weighs 18#, now I need to weigh the orig. Looks like I have some work, over xmas break. Weighed the steel hood, 50 lbs. Not bad for such a massive spanse,(only periperal stiffening underneath). To be continued, Plan is to get standard corner weights, 2,087lbs wo. driver=52% front), then torsional testing of unit body, I will try to twist at the wheel base vs. the bumper mounts. Cheers roverman.
