I certainly hope my NOVEL clears up what direction I'm going here and where my thinking process comes from.
It certainly sounds like a worthwhile project if you have the time, the expense and the lack of constraints from a rule book.

I'm interested to see how it works out.

You make valid points.

My comments were made with respect to keeping the car "basically stock".

You are carrying much further than that.

Just curious, with the weight removal project you are undertaking, do you intend to do away with the safety gear as well or add your own?

I would ask that you take that into consideration on your project.
