Cool victory_red_SS is going RWD

Yes after not keeping this a real good secret I officially announce that I am going RWD. We are turning the engine 90 degrees, using a Tremec T56 paired to a Ford 9" rear end. We are also going the stand alone route for tuning. The details to the stand alone are not yet confirmed but I will know more in the next week or so. Obviously there will be no back seat and the whole car will be tubed. The roll cage will be minimized by the custom work done by Keith Losier and Desired Customs. There will be a custom console and back seat area to hide the tunnel alterations as well as rwd conversion. There are several changes to be made to allow for this conversion and some of those changes will remain hush, hush until the project is unvieled. The car will also be tubbed and I will have some serious tires back there. The d\r's will be a 17" 40 series, 390. The z rated street tires will also be as big as I can buy. I will be buying slicks as well as the d\r's for the track. I discovered that at "street legal nights" I am allowed to run an all out slick in the sport compact class, even with the rwd conversion.
This conversion solves many problems with traction\wheel hop\transmission\drive shafts and I have been on cloud nine since we made this change in the project's direction.

It will be crazy and I am glad that in certain instances GM and Ford play nice together.
