Thumbs up victory_red_SS SEMA bound?????

Well it isn't official but the expectation is that my car will be in Vegas for this years show. I was asked if I was interested at all in SEMA and I thought about it for all of .5 seconds. I just bought a race trailer last week and it will come in handy for the drive down. Being able to show the car to all the pro's will really be the icing on this project.
Next week the car will be torn apart so the complete sub 10 second chromoly cage can start going into the car. As well there will be a few necessary alterations to allow for the placement of some very strategic parts, which will all help me run under 10's in the 1/4. I know being vague really sucks guys and I would love to share all the details but the "tuner world" loves to keep their proprietary secrets until the last possible moment. Now for me (and the few guys I have shared the secret with) not telling whats up is almost killing me but the end is is near. It's not in sight but just around the corner.
And no guys my car will not be a trailer queen. I will use my trailer on track days, for carrying car\tires\parts\tools, as well as for taking the car to any shows (that may be interested in having my car there) and any long trips.
The other question I get at times is what I am doing for the interior. I don't really know as I have given Keith Losier (Desired Customs) a large amount of creative freedom when he makes the car "not" look like a race car inside.

well now it is out sort of. I kept my word to you Victory. the pressure is off me. thanks. Oh and due to your plans I think you should not hold back on drivetrain strength at all. I remember your build was to allow engine to be tuned to 80% of potential or 750WHP. Crank it up to 95%. you know you will want to do it on some days at the track (not for the street) LOL.

That has been what I have been pondering about for the last couple of weeks.
