Its been a while since I've been on here or payed any attention to the focus, but I've got a good reason. I built this thing for my senior design project for college and finally finished it up last month and graduated, so now its time to turn back to the focus. Heres a couple pictures of it with a few details, let me know if yall wanna see some more, don't wanna take up too much space on here.







351 Cleveland ~400hp with ford AOD tranny
Jaguar IRS
Yes that is a tractor grille and steering wheel and john deere tractor seats

Does that second pic look funny to anyone else?

And I believe I speak for everyone on here when I say, WE WANT TO SEE MORE!!!! I personally want to see some long ass burnout marks, and some motor shots.

The damn thing won't do a burnout to save its life lol, its such a big tire in the back it just grips and slides the front. I guess i could pour some clorox on the ground and do it that way. Might hafta do that this weekend.







Built the chassis myself outta 3"x4" 1/8" rectangular tubing, one of my proffs said you could try to blow the thing up and it won't move.....i think hes right, bout blew my back out pickin it up.

Yeah, your tellin me. I've given up the job search and already reapplied to take a couple more courses. Whoever came up with classes like "Intro to transmissions" and "Automotive powertrain laboratory" are my heros!!


Sorry for the bad audio, but watch the body when it revs up....had too soft of springs on the back and was coilbinding the RR when it reved
