Loaded up and I'm headed home. 1100 miles today, and I'm getting tired.

Was going to start from scratch, but then found this. I pulled the engine and figured out my plan, as soon as I get a break from combining I'm taking it to elite to tube in the rear, and build an a-arm front, trailing arm rear. Bought 14in air shocks for the rear, still haven't figured out length for the front. Going to cam the engine and tune it for e85, aka big boost. Hoping for 400hp, 1500 lbs.

Now that my rear is spooled, I'm completely rebuilding the whole back half of bruiser. Hopefully I won't drive 6 hours to be pissed off next year. Plan on bringing the buggy as well, not sure what ill do with it there, but should be fun somewhere. Anxious to get it back to dial it in and figure out how crazy I need to go with the engine. I'm hoping 350 is enough to pull wheelies in street trim, and keep the nose light while spinning 33s. If not I have a plan all the way to 550hp, but its expensive.

Open for suggestions on color, and a name. So far I'm thinking a dark candy, pink, red, copper, or blue.

You bought it at Jeff Belzers? Isn't that a few hundred miles away for you?
