    Stephan's SLC Build Log

    Getting ready to drop the tub in for good. During test fitment with seats I noticed a deflection in the tub area of the seat front depending on where you put your foot to get into the seat.

    New kit car on knock off SLC chassis

    The RAZOR on a knock off SLC chassis. Price for a roller chassis is $10,000 and the body is priced with windows, hinges and tail lights at $12,000. Not a bad looking kit if someone is creative, can come up with an interior and is looking for a different skin.
