Aaron's SL-C build...

I’m working on canards now. These will be functional and well secured to the nose cone. Chime in and let me know if you guys like them more shallow or steeply curved.

Should I follow the BLACK line or the RED line for the canard shape?

Don’t make them too wide (for street use) or you might have a problem with the police. OEM manufactures are mandated to keep them very narrow so they don’t chop a pedestrians legs off in a accident. In general they can’t protrude farther then the side body work.
 
For anyone that wants to see my exhaust. Using the stock LS3 manifolds makes things a little straighter :)
Aaron, lets just say you were going to have the exhaust come out of the side of the build and use headers instead of the manifold !! What type of headers would you get? Short tube headers OR long tube headers? I know short tube headers do not perform as well as long tube headers however if long tube headers were the choice would there be room between the chassis and the LS7 engine for long tube headers?
 
At one point I had LS7 with LS7 manifolds, cats, no mufflers, side exhaust. With the manifolds, there really is not room for Cats and Mufflers - might not be impossible, but real tough. With true headers, you would not have room for any effective muffler. Not that I have a problem with that....
 
Personally I wouldn’t consider an exhaust for a street car without cats or mufflers. The race cats aren’t that restrictive and your car won’t smell like ass and choke everybody out at your local car scene. Along with that, noisy cars draw police attention...
 
Awaiting electrical pins for the front wiring harness that I'm creating. The final A/C hose that I needed is ordered for the front condenser area. Purchased an approved AW32 oil for my Ramlift system. I'm not sure as to why so many here are having leaks with the Ramlift cylinders? Is it because some here are using ATF fluid instead of the recommended mineral hydraulic oil? I'll let you know my findings on this. Ramlift says to use hydraulic mineral oil...

I've started sanding, gelcoat repair and filler work on areas of the main body. The gelcoat of right shoulder of my main body (spider) cracked and I needed to grind that out and find out why. The root issue is delamination of the fiberglass in that area. This is a defect from the fiberglass manufacturer. I'm fixing this issue as well as reinforcing it from the backside.
 
I should be putting the main body back on in the coming weeks to do an electrical check. I've been talking with Jay at Infinity about the changes that I need to have done to the master cell.

Mesa was having an oil leak on the ram lift due to the oil spraying out of the vent hole, he has a solution on his build thread using a Tilton fitting that redirects the internal oil flow.
