Is it possible that we could be in for a "Mittyesque" review of the differences between your Whipple and Twin Turbo GTX-1's after you get in some seat tiime? I would be very interested in reading that!

Pics look great. Congrats on the car. :cheers

Absolutely stunning, Rick. Congratulations. I look forward to seeing your newest creation.

I think you will like Bernard Guerin's handi-work on my X1 - with a new automated clamshell opening (with actuated hinges behind cockpit), a totally new air-intake system that eliminates the stock airbox, and (believe it or not) a trunk large enough for a set of golf clubs. I would attach some pictures, but haven't mastered the process for doing so. Consequently, you'll have to wait and see at the Rally.

I look forward to seeing you again.

Best regards,

Steve

Hello Steve,

Your X1 sounds interesting. So you will be at the Rally too. I guess that makes a dozen X1's for our little photo shoot.

Any others out there we haven't heard from?

Studio shots will be taken the end of next week. Last time they took almost 3 weeks to get. :frown

So, you might see it first at the rally before the professional shots get posted.

Just minutes ago Rich Brooks brought the first GTX1 twin turbo alive. :banana:banana Over the phone it sounded way meaner than my Whippled car.

Look for it at Rally III. :thumbsup
