  • The beast below the bonnet (no bulge required!

  • Driveing the track at Watkins Glen

“FIS6 (pronounced 'physics')”
The engine has been moved back 6" and mounted via a modified Spit 1500 front engine plate. Megasquirt is the fuel and wasted spark control. Currently getting around 31mpg...when I can keep my foot out of it. Recent updates include an independent rear suspension built with CV rear axles and adjustable custom lower a-arms. Over the last few years FIS6 has driven to and from and run track laps at Road Atlanta, Watkins glen, and Lime Rock. This car gets driven, it's far from static :-)
....that last pic..Road Atlanta..... that lean is with a 1:" swaybar up front! we were rolling through those corners!

Beautiful. Do you have a website on your build? Would love to see more pictures and find out what you did for the rear end suspension.
