Nitro, what do you mean? I'm not sure to what you are reffering. I do race cars and bikes though.

I thought last year you talked about running against a lot of super cars in a road race but I thought the picture looked like they were taken in the country side or on real highways not so much in a track setting?

It is just an exotic car club. We were on a drive that day. The guy in the Murcielago is a friend.

Great build so far. Everyone is really pulling for you on this one. BTW, I like your choice in other cars as well; is the GTS a 96 or 97? Mine's a 97

Thanks for the kind thoughts guys. The build is good. I just ordered all the stainless steel for the exaust ducting and am looking forward to making this thing go. It's an exciting project doing something that is relatively uncharted. The execution is going very well and the engineering is working almost too well. Here are a few shots.

The Viper is a 97. It's a great all around car. What color scheme is yours? Any mods?

Mine's black. Yeah, I know, they didn't make black GTSs in 97. Got mine in a state of disrepair (body panels all busted up or missing) and since I had to paint the entire thing, I decided to paint it the color I wanted.

Only mods are side exhaust, K&N filters, cat delete, smooth tubes and the duct and louvers on the hood are molded in (no gaps). Great car. Lot of power.

Stay strong on your project. A lot of uncharted territory you are heading into
