That is the object of the exercise Mick however we still have a lot of work to do but with some 8½ months until Speed Week we should be there.
Once I am happy with everything as far as the frame etc is concerned the finishing off of the car becomes a team effort with my crew members becoming part of the build.
Thanks to some help from a friend we will have the 28 x 4.5 Goodyear Land Speed tires for our debut of the car, so if all goes to plan we should be able to get us a record.
Cheers,

Looks like an inherently stable design. What's the wheelbase Cookey?

Interesting, I'm aiming at 150inches for my Diahatsu Mira Comp Coupe.
As long as you can fit everything in without making it a PITA to maintain, clean or work on.
