You guys really built a great looking car.
I would love to see a hood without the part that sticks up, but I forgot what the engine looked like from the other thread.

Is cadilac gonna have you build a car next? :) lol
that would be a great drift car.

Yeah, watching that guy Pilgrim destroy the compitition in that thing, you would think Caddy would consider it.


This car will be great to see in the line up this year.

I'm so proud to have been a part of this build ~ Conrad and Luke did a fantastic job with the mechanical aspects of the car, Andrew did awesome with the graphics (especially the Jordan Innovations sticker), and Conrad's gonna drive the piss out of it I can tell.

The only thing I'm not a fan of is the lack of visibility ~ you can't see anything lower than the hood for like 50ft. Conrad doesn't seem to mind lol.

Haha, yeah, it sounds 'healthy'.

i saw it at dynamic autosports when it was getting tuned...fuckin loud!!!

Really? I was there working with Mitch to get all the electronics working properly so he could tune it. Did we meet?

Good stuff! I am happy for Conrad, hes been telling me about it for long! Cant wait to compete against him this year :)

Sup Charles! This is Jeff from Savini. :)

Car looks great.

Driving wise though,.....meh.

seems like Conrads having to do ALOT of sterring adjustment adn the car still wants to straighten out.

Although, that may not be the case at the higher speeds and wheel spin speed of FD.

Nice photoshop on the cooper tire arch in the picture, lol.

thanks for the video too.
