It's been a bit over 2 years since I bought this thing, but I am finally starting to assemble it.
2 years ago, fresh from DF.
Getting a few ideas.
Mocking up the Saab F40.
At a fab shop getting the PVC turned into steel.
The F40 fits now.
2 Mishimoto Kawasaki KFX 700 radiators are going to be used for heat exchangers.
Back home and painted with Steel-it. Strat81 dropped by to help.
How it is currently.
Cheap set of wheels/tire to move it around on and currently figuring out a 2 piece rotor setup for the Cobalt SS/TC front Brembos.
What is it? It is a DF Goblin(chassis #88, if anyone cares). It uses a Cobalt as a donor. My build plans are:
My built L61 with the TVS and possible nitrous with MS3 Pro to control it all.
Saab F40 6-speed manual transmission. CBM is currently looking at making a custom flywheel for me.
Full Radium Engineering fuel system. FCST is sitting on the shelf and a custom fuel tank is getting made soon.
Brembos and 2 piece rotors on all 4 corners. Wilwood pedal box. Manual brakes/steering.
Tons of carbon fiber.
In the end it should be ~1,700lbs(without me in it) and 400+whp(without nitrous). I didn't buy a Cobalt donor car because I am not using the main parts from a Cobalt. I do regret that decision a bit.

Very cool little land rocket you have there.
