It's not the ground clearance I'm talking about. It doesn't look like he would be able to do anything but "cruise" in a straight line.

It's hard to tell from this agnle though how narrow the front wheelbase is.

That's what I'm trying to figure-out now. How low can I go with the 66 and still be able to comfortably drive it (and be able to turn off an exit ramp).

Yeah you can tell from that pic that he has dramatically narrowed the front wheelbase.

Is the turning radius limited? What is the front wheelbase hub to hub? 48" or so?

It looks like the turning radius is limited some some but not to the point he couldn't drive it.

Any pics or details on th front suspension?

From what I know of the car it's a stock Chassisworks front clip. No alterations to the track width as far as I know. I've seen it go lock to lock without any issues but, again, I wasn't there when they put it together so I'm not sure what they really did to make it work.

The track width has been narrowed from the stock nova width I believe it is a 56" TW. It has been a while since we did that lay out. It will turn lock tolock with out issues. The scrub radius is right on also which helps with and rub issuses also.

But if there ever was a turning issue that is what the pedal on the right is for.....If you give it enough gas she will come around just be ready for it....

Great pics!!! Thanks.. Yeah, shes low.. I like!! Whats crazy is what you DONT see, its all under the sheetmetal. Ive been following this rides progression, along with Johns and when you know what the suspension is made up of its incredible... And yeah, you guys got the stance down just right, level at the floor with offset wheels. Nice planning ahead there.. Looks good.... JR
