by the picture it does look jacked but . the b and c pillars if you will, are at 106 or 74 degrees what ever you want to call it. Fitting things in this, mainly my meat head so i have 5'' to 6'' of clearance. i could lower the seats but then my elbow would be right on the rear output and legs would be very cramped . I hope im going in the right direction i hope to spend 4 hrs at a wack in this thing. with 22'' at belly to ground , and 78'' total height it might not be the lowest but i hope it to be comfortable and get it how do you like the red neck mock up

78 is just fine. im at 70" with 40s and i belly out on alot of things and sometimes think mine sits to low. cant wait to see this done. i dont know which will be scarier. last year looking in my rearview to see the green monstor right behind me at the starting line. or seeing this thing breathing fire at the starting line in 2011.

well im glad x mas is over even though i did get some seats for the buggie. thanks erin for stopping by with some good advice i guess its not easy to break out of ones way of doing things i was starting to get it boxy so i tipped b pillars back to 115 degrees gave it more room and i think a cooler design.worked on the roof thurs and friday . from this point im going to link the axels next week so i can continue tube. link bars in pic are from other truck starting from scrach plus retrussing axels. HAPPY NEW YEAR.
