There was a thread on the old board about this car. You could try and dig that up. There's some sweet videos floating around, too. Awesome car.

Holy crap.... i can't decide if this is the coolest or dumbest thing i've ever seen. I'm going to vote for coolest. Do you get a lot of strange looks as people hear you going down the road, but look around for the second car? The echo-effect in your videos caused by both motors is almost creepy.

Yep! Love it! Glad to see you're still working on it

Yes indeed, it's alive and well. I intend to haul it to an autocross and drag evening before the summer is done.
