    The brakes I got are the "Mid Sized". And they are huge. They require a minimum of an 18" wheel. 
    The "Full Size" need 20" wheels for clearance. I really wanted to run 15" wheels. But then I could only run the "Basic" disc setup.

    After looking at the cost of the chassis, I am curious how that would compare to just going with a full chassis and cage and just hang the body panels on it.  Either way I am jealous beyond measure.

    So I saw where you were going with an Elephant for power, but what transmission?  Are you planing on a road race style car, drag race or just all around street car?

    That's been a concern from the start.
    I'm going to get these wheels... https://us-mags.com/baja-u644-w-13698.htm
    They come in a large variety of sizes and backspacings.
    I'm going with a satin black power coating.
    I really wanted to go this route... https://www.summitracing.com/parts/BSW-D58DC3?seid=srese1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2uej---s7AIVax-tBh00HgCJEAYYASABEgJ3nfD_BwE 
    The old NASCAR look. But the size limitations killed that.

    For tires I'm getting these... https://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/eagle-f1-super-car

    I looked into that. It might have been cheaper initially, but with this system, all the fabbing has been done. So the thinking and time consuming work isn't needed. Way faster.  Still going with a full cage rated for over 200 at Bonneville.  I'm leaning the "Pro Street" direction here. I want to drive this thing all over the place.  Looking to a built 4L75E automatic.
    I really want to use this car. So, yes to all the above. I'll be curious what it can do at a drag strip. But that won't be the biggest interest. Road racing will also be a curious venture. In fact, my ex son in law has been in my gun sight's for a while with his "race Daytona" he built a few years ago. He's a terror at Willow Springs. So somebody has to put him in his place.  I told him one day I'll be able to outspend him.  ;D
