That tube notcher setup is quite "ghetto", but i like it - simple!

Very nice.

The amount reinforcement done to the chassis I don't think it will flex a bit.

Wonderful pics. Thanks for sharing. I love that shade of blue (first pic) and the one with the front fog's looks mean and killer.

Dont they use robots to build these cars? Looks like its handmade all through.

There was a series about the Petter Solberg and Chris Atkinson's World rally team where they showed a bit of the build and how technical problems were solved on the drawing board, by actually redesigning components as vital as the gears and the radiator.

And oddly, while the car is Japanese, the rally team works is in England. Long distance or what.

Amazing pictures, by the way. Thanks for sharing.

Another question. What are those two rods in the gear shift?
