Yes, the Ether starting system, and ether injection.

Still waiting for Dennis at TS to perfect it though.


Not sure if it will be done by Christmas. Thats my goal, but its at the Chassis guys place now, and its in his hands. We want it done right, so time is not a major factor.

Question. maybe i missed it but, how are you going to keep the front end up. the stock springs cant stand that kind of weight. how are you doing the front to hold up to it? just wondering.

Its a complete build. The front end will be modified to accomadate the weight, and the braking needs. Pretty much everything has to be strengthened. I'll get some pics ASAP. This is a very public build. There will be no secrets.

Finally bit the bullet on some billet rods from Crower today. Ouch, but I figured if I didn't do it, I would have a rod thrown out the side the first pass, and the second motor would have Billet rods any way. LOL
