this is huge, but even if you just flick through the many many pics of the build it really is amazing what this guy is doing, Alfa Romeo Ducato Spider with 400bhp small block Ford V8 fitted, his other cars are pretty darn (American sire rubbed off on me) good as well.

that is one narrow axle. i think it will induce torque wind-up and make the back end very nervous. thats why i suggested a wider track.:)

But if he gets the weight distribution right, shouldnt be *that* bad, think i read something about the way he was planning it is expecting understeer if anything

to stop wind-up, the engine on a car can be fitted so thats its off centre. its a trick some of the drag racers did a while back.:)
