    Is it a real tanker, it sounds like he made it.
     

  5. I think you are seeing the top sections of the belly tank behind it.

    The way I read it, he formed the body himself. It looks like a good start if it can be made legal to run.

    I don't know this guy, but he builds some awesome stuff, and takes time to document it here. I have followed a couple of the builds and subscribed to them for reference.

    That bellytanker is still for sale. I talked to the owner/builder. Turns out that the buyer backed out on the sale.

    Good for driving around the block but not a real race car.
