Well, I got to see the drawings of the "new" mid-engine factory five car today! It is AWESOME!!!!!!! YOU WILL NOT BE SAYING: IT'S A REPLICA! Maybe down the road other owners may be saying: "Sorry, It's a Replica of a Factory Five"! I am number 2 on the list (How in hell am I going to explain this one to the wife?) Now the only problem is if I can learn Italian because Dave says that will be one of the prerequisits in order to order one! I think it should be like Ferarri does it: In order to get one you must 1. Have built and owned a Roadster 2. THEN you must also have built and owned a Coupe. 3.THEN your first born must legally have his/her last name changed to Smith! And I WAS so excited about my Coupe! Well, I guess I better go out inthe garage and finish my Pinto, Oh I mean Coupe :(

So, when can we see these drawings? If we sign non-disclosure agreements can you email us some scans? :D

I ALMOST asked Dave if I could copy it but I was afraid it would be pushing it. To be honest, I was very surprised when Dave said I could post it on the internet. Man is she beautiful! Between my Daytona which will be done soon I keep singing to myself "Torn Between Two Lovers"!

Who is going to help me with the nasty pile of wire some people call a harness. Any suggestions?

Details.....We need more details!

What trans axle will it use?

What Engine? (Personally I think a Ryan Falconer V12 would be just right :D )

Is it an all new concept or does it rely on current FFR parts?

What's the target price and availability?

Gee can you tell I might be looking for another project!

Bill, which harness are you using? Stock or Painless?

I was in such a state of shock when I saw the new body I forgot to ask about the details. Personally, I think they should put a chevy in it, just to spite Ford after the latest hassle!

This thing is suppose to be a 200mph supercar so I'm assuming some sort of ground effects and a rear spoiler? is it squared off in the nose like a Countach or does it have a rounded nose? I have it pictured more like a Diablo.

Eric,

You should see if your Roadster actually runs and drives with no parts falling off prior to getting a new one to build! :eek: :eek:

I spoke with Wayne Presley last night...but he was very closed mouth...and what he did tell me was sworn to secrecy under penalty of death :eek: Be patient...FFR is suppose to release some info soon. Maybe I should consider selling THE BEAST so I can buy one of these puppys??? :confused: dino

I had a 87 donor with speed density.
Motor had 130 k on it and found out it had a (week) cylinder. Ordered a FR long block. The general opinion is I have to switch to Mass Air now. I currently have the old com.and harness. I am looking for suggestions at this point.
Thanks
Bill
