    Well in that case it makes perfect sense... :D

    P.S. this thing is fucking awesome. If it does wind up killing you at least it will be a fun way to go

    Quick update.........It was last Friday when I sat inside the chassis and decided to cut all the tact welds and break down all the uprights and shoulder hoop.....I raised the shoulder hoop and remade all my verticle upright tubes. I also built in less angle into the verticle tubes as well and gave myself a few more inches of leg room.....I made the K's on the sides of the seat area and finished the X's in the floor today.....Littleman

    This pic you can see where I had the shoulder hoop in relation to the blower pulley.

    This is where the shoulder hoop is now.

    Yes...I owe a big thanks to Rooman for answering some of my silly emails !!!!.....Always best to direct your questions to someone that actually does it for a living...and I thanks you for taking the time to answer the questions. Between the NHRA rule book and the SFI booklet. I want to ensure I am understanding the key points....From watching countless recent vids of RED and FED diggers along w/ pictures of currently running stuff...I have learned just because you have a cert. sticker does not always mean your car should have passed tech....I want to learn from others so I am doing allot of digging...and since I am going to bend up a FED chassis next as well I want to learn as much as possible.......I see too many cars that do not comply w/ the 4'' min. clearance from the front plane of the helmet to the outside of the front helmet bar...As far as I am concerned...while you are getting something like this teched for a sticker.....and the tech does not ask you to get in the car while wearing a helmet to check clearances...then they are not doing their job...So I guess your tech is only as good as the person looking over your stuff........I plan on climbing in my car for tech.....I did find allot that looked correct when looking around as well...

    I bent up my first front helmet bar today.......I thought I was going to have to make it twice since I am new to bending...but may have gotten it right the first time...The block on top of my helmet is 2'' high. You must maintain a 2'' min. in this area...........Littleman

    I have been working on the helmet bars and had help placing the body back on for a quick look tonight...I still need to make two more 1'' helmet bars before I tact them all into place....This thing is real crazy looking when you stand up on the table and look down @ it as if it were on the ground.....I just love building to no plans...........Littleman

    I threw on a front wheel for a wheelbase look before I removed the body again today..I can make the helmet hoops a few more inches shorter vertically if I change my driving seated position, but I am more comfortable sitting up in this contraption than leaning back. It also gives me more room to play w/ steering wheel and shifter location wise..But am still considering changing it..need to think on it..Littleman

    I don't think there's enough room in the cockpit for the amount of balls you're going to have for driving this thing.. Crazy cool.

    When I was a teenager alot of my extra and unfinished model cars got mixed up and into some wild kit bashing creations that arose from those model glue fume induced fantasies . Everything Littleman builds is his full scale version of some of those same kind of wild fume induced dreams I had GOOD LUCK AND TO HELL WITH THE NORM . Hot Rods are made to break the rules build it and let them decide what class it belongs in and let the mainstreamers figure out what the proper name or classification for it should be I will just call it Badass .

    Littleman,
    how about selling that decklid to Shaggy since an aluminum louvered racecar styled rear lid is the deal on that cool machine anyway.
    what a great project.
