The other part of the problem is dragging all the crap to your side of the world.

Actually I should be taking ownership of a v6 powerplant for my jeep ....and my garage is packed to the gills with a bunch of other "stuff" so it's gonna be a fair weather driveway project.

How far away from Michigan Tech are you? I would love to stop by when I am up there and check out your projects. I wish they had classes like that in college.

Tim they showed something similar, on Monster Garage Backyard Monsters. It was a college or Tech school that built it and competed in a competition between schools. Maybe Check out the shows website and see if you can get contact info for the school or compettion.

The track is going to be quite a bit wider. The front and rear will be converted to a-arms and coil-overs.
