Could hack everything forward of the firewall off and build a complete new tube frame from there?

Front wheel drive roadster anyone?

Found this on the net. Might add some fuel to the "how to stop a roadster spinning" debate. http://bangshift.com/assets/galleries/2061/loring_timing_assoc_2009_14_.jpg http://bangshift.com/assets/galleries/2061/loring_timing_assoc_2009_11_.jpg http://bangshift.com/assets/galleries/2061/loring_timing...
