    1200HP -- that'll get your attention. Now I hope FFR is going to make an NHRA legal cage for that truck or at least use chassis components that you could weld a cage to that would pass NHRA chassis cert. The 1.5" square tube used in the 33HR is not an NHRA compliant chassis member to weld a roll bar or cage to (2018 Sec-21 4:10) and these cars are just crying to be made into street / strip machines. With that much power we want to see that thing doing regular duty on the drag strip.

    How about it FFR, you're an American company -- cross over from your European inspired road course comfort zone and dip a toe into the straight line acceleration game that was born in America back when hot rodding was young and wild. You've got the SCCA boys and girls covered with track-worthy models -- give us a kit we can assemble and go drag racing in without modifying your chassis to meet NHRA requirements. If Dodge can build drag racers in street clothing y'all can build a drag race-worthy hot rod kit be it truck or three-window coupe.

    Currently, there are three major race trucks on the board for 2018. Customer Erik Treves is building a high-horsepower pro-street truck. Hot Rod Magazine's Mark Gearhart is going to give Erik a run for his money, and the crew here at Factory Five is building a NASCAR 900 HP drift truck for Joey Logano later this year. In the meantime, the crew here is building a production street truck with full fenders and Coyote power.

    The truck projects mentioned above will not have a cage that would pass NHRA chassis cert. This will have to wait until truck production is in full gear and will likely be a fully custom project.

    I hope this is associated with Hoonigan in Long Beach. I live just a few blocks away and every time I turn off the freeway exit off-ramp I peek into their lot. Always neat things in there.

    The Black body and silver edges on those wheels follows the theme on my 3G Hemi dress-up parts so it all ties in.

    It's not, building it in my garage though they will do a feature on it once it's done. It's Hot Rod Magazine project.

    I've had Weld RT-S wheels on other cars and really like the fit and finish. This will be an 18x10 front and 20x11.5 rear.

    Can someone move this to the projects sub forum? I accidentally posted it here.

    My truck showed up Friday. Overall, looks considerably easier (sheet metal wise) than the Roadster/Challenge car. Missing a few boxes that I will wait for before I start. Already have the Wilwood 6/4 piston brakes with an extra set of rear calipers for the hydraulic E-brake, along with a Moser rear end. Wheels are supposed to ship this week.

    Anybody know the paint code for that Ford Liquid Blue? Would love to paint my 33 the same color.

    There was no paint code released. Ford Custom Color.

    The Production GT is actually Riviera Blue and RS is Nitrous/Nitrous Grip Blue. There's also Hugger. The closest color to liquid is probably Kona Blue....

    I don't, but I have found another blue that I like just as much. I tried to find it but I didn't have any success.

    Sorry I haven't been in here much, been busy with the day job and the Truck has been sitting for about a month since I got it.

    Finally kicked off the Truck build Friday. The guys from Hot Rod came by my home garage and we wrenched on the Truck for about 8 hours. Our goal was to get it into a roller but didn't have caliper brackets and received two left, rear control arms - it was my fault for not checking that before hand. The entire front suspension, minus the calipers, is done. In about an hour's worth of work the rear end will be in and she will be a roller. After that, it will be sheet metal/fuel system time.

    Here's the second story on "preparing for your Factory Five" - will have a front suspension story soon! - https://www.hotrod.com/articles/prep...five-delivery/

    I wanted wider but there's not a lot of performance handling tires above a 325 in a 20-inch diameter. Pilot Sport Cups are available at $556/tire in a 345, but I am also sponsored by Toyo.

    Yeah my Hot Rod is being targeted for the cruise and the look. I "might" take it down a 1/4 or 1/8 mile track a time or two but mostly it will be for driving.

    Erik and Da Bat came over to help us on day 2 of the Truck build. It's now a full roller! We also got the pedal box and firewall sheet metal handled. Jeff will take the truck in 2-3 weeks to get the body panels sorted for paint them bring me back the roller. From there, I will install the motor/trans and get it to my fab guy to get the turbo manifolds built.

    Looking forward to following this build, great work so far!

    Can you please provide a bit more info about the brakes? Specifically the front. What size master cylinders are you using and did you have to modify the spindles much? Let me know, thanks!!!

    Sorry for the delay on updates here. I gave Da Bat the truck for about 1.5 months so he could get the panels square and get working on the body. I got the chassis back before thanksgiving and been busy with work and Christmas prep. My goal is to get the motor/trans in the truck in early Jan. After that, my fabricator will handle all the turbo plumbing and it will be game on after then.

    Here's the front suspension story and I am almost done with the rear suspension story. - https://www.hotrod.com/articles/fron...ild-drift-rod/
