    Looks very tidy indeed. It's a shame you couldnt work one of the batteries from the rear to the front, as that's very rear biased, but like you say, so are other performance cars and they cope ok

      The rear bias was intentional. The motor will regen brake in addition the standard hydraulic brakes. Its an effort to prevent weight transfer off the rear tire and loss of traction. Itll obviously help for acceleration as well.

      I already have 1000lb springs in the back to stop it from squatting every time I hit the throttle with the LS motor. Theres a 25mm sway bar up front and going to start with no rear bar. It should be fairly close to what I need.

              This is so awesome. It sounds like a remote control car.

                This is an incredible build. I'm enamored with the numerous examples of mechanical and technical knowledge on this forum, but this is a step above.

                Great work!

                    Amazing work and quality! I’m too much of a purist to completely like it but very cool car. I love the chatterbox m20 with the top down too much, I don’t care if it’s slower than a Camry lol

                              In the video it sounds like a space ship going past & enabling the warp drive :)

                              Great work on the swap.
