Other Goodies: First of all, this customer is a tattoo artist and has an insane attention to detail. Everything down to the subframes has been painted in a custom metal flake. Its powered by a built LS3 making around 650 hp, has a rear radiator with custom 3d printed quarter panel ducts as well as the exit louvers. Stance coilovers, complete custom wiring job, aluminum floor boards, Comp Brake pedal box and calipers all around…

This car started it’s journey with just a roll cage. That even started as a basic cage in the beginning, but snowballed into something a little more elaborate with gussets and extra bars..
After the cage, it sort of just got out of control. First we cut the back off to do a complete tube section in the rear, including the radiator and fuel cell.
The success of any rear radiator setup is in the exiting of the hot air. Fresh air in is good, but if it has nowhere to go once it’s hot, you get heat soak. 2 14" fans required some ducting to be fabricated to move the air out!
you can see the custom 3d printed inlet ducts cut into the Carbon Creations wide body rear quarter panels above. In the picture to the right, you can see the aluminum shroud and custom 3d printed ducts to carry the cool ambient air to the radiator.
The lower panel for the exit ducting incorporated the dry break for the fuel cell. All the aluminum ducting is dzus’d on, so a 1/4 turn and it’s all removable.
Next was the front of the car. We replaced the factory removable core support with a tube structure to allow for ease of mounting and better damage protection.
An aluminum floor board was fabricated and a Comp Brake Pro pedal box was installed to give infinite adjustment on the pedal assembly.
Currently finished with paint and awaiting a wrap, this car will be coming back for final assembly including wiring, but here is how it sits now.
