Thanks for the link brother.

That Hartley flat-pane crank V8 is the stuff of wet dreams.

Welp, looks like the LS3 is becoming the engine package of choice.

Weight/Cost Vs. Power Output

This trans as well: http://americanpowertrain.com/c-320550-shop-by-make-gm-transmissions-tremec-magnum-close-ratio.html

This 5 speed doesn't seem to bad either.

I love Tremecs. The Challenger R/T has a TREMEC 6 in it, so unbelievably smooth.

Speaking of weight, 4 cyls can be pretty god damn heavy. Aluminuminum V8 is the way to, I believe.

Plus, the LS3 mated to the wide ratio Tremec 6 speed setup with a street differential (No camber, street tow), I'm sure it could do a bit better than 25mpg which is decent.

I'm now playing with this 3D modeling program using a reference tube frame chassis and body to experiment.

Only time until I have a rough model to show ya guys.
