You remember The Rubble in the Jungle....

Now its time for The Rampage on the.... something that rhymes with "rampage."

The staff selected a number of race-trim cars to nominate in this month. Not *every* race-ready car was chosen. One of my favs, that's yellow, is not here. But that's okay. We had to narrow it down and here are only a few of what the site has to offer!

Take a look. Drool for a while. Take notes. And don't forget to vote! :-D

Racecar project. On a budget. SFI 25.3 built in my garage. Legal to 6.50's at 3600 lbs. Getting a 5.3 ls with a GT55-18R turbo in a 88 mm, ill be tuning it with a holley dominator efi and using e85 and an air to water intercooler. Everything on the car is constructed by me, piping, carpet, cage, panels, fuel and water cell, plumbing, everything.... Suspension is custom built by me. Will be a street car that can drive to and from the race track, go mid 8s and drive home.

Started a business based on this, people have seen my work and I have been doing cage and chassis work on the side lately.
