    Well with lockdowns and high chance of f99k all racing happening this year the nova is ready to race so thought i would make a start on my second drag car build. C20let 600+hp corsa d vxr. Dont think its been done before only ever seen an xe in one. I can see this involving alot of fabrication and machine work.

    Never seen a Corsa D stripped this far. Interesting!

    Rear brace is fitted now but i cant totaly complete it until i build another set of tie bar mounts with some sort of connection added to take the tubes

    I fitted a similar brace and it makes of a world of diference - makes sense thinking of the forces going from the wheels under acceleraetion and braking, through the tiebar brackets and being transferred up the chassis legs.

    Downside on mine is you can't remove the diff with it fitted, if you can work around the diff over that would be good.

    New wings mocked on and bumper cut to suit wide wings again. Ignore the wonky indicators they are just sat back on so i could see how its going to look with new light stickers on.

    Can send them away to be painted now and bolted together properly ready for some racing,, fingers crossed
