heres some pics

Cockpit



Rear view of the chassis



Fiberglass hatch and bumper no attached



I did some measurements. we have been working off the ride height of 60mm and never thought of measuring the complete height to the tip of the roof with the car sitting at ride height. I was quiet amazed the standard x3 is 55" or 1400mm my car is 48" 1200mm.

If this car goes well were thinking about making a genesis coup with a tube chassis and the genesis engine to race in the 6 litre catagory but thats a few years down the track.
