I like it!

You could have one engine supercharged and one turbo!

Body could use some work though :dry:

I like the way they put this together. Ok it could use some polishing up, but it's a cool idea to have an engine in the back and the front together.

It seems that the auto gearbox is a bit of an enabler for this as they don't have to have too many linkages going backwards and forwards. Must have been fun to hook up the accelerator cables though :S

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Wow - great project.

I get the idea of stripped out interiors but it looks a bit more throw-together than stripped out
