    The following opinions are mine and are not meant to detract from a beautiful car and the tremendous amount of work it took to create! YMMV

    Ok, I apologize. I have been trying to ignore one certain line, and can't, so I hope to understand the line.

    What/why is this line here. The angle does not flow with its surroundings and I am not sure why there is a seam instead of molded in.

    When I say it doesn't flow with its surroundings I mean...
    All the lines preceding this are flowing from low to high, giving the suggestion of flow going up and over the front tire/wheel opening.
    The eye starts at the front splitter, flows past/through the cooling ducts, up to the headlight and... Bam! After all of these nice organic up-swept lines you run into straight edged, offset, down turned seam.




    I once read an article on the Saleen S7 turbo, and they commented, not complimented but commented, that they think the designer was going for the world record on gill openings/vents and used them where they really were not necessary.

    These front side air scoops remind me of that article.

    I would be interested in how the car looked if you eliminated these scoops, and maybe replaced them with carbon fiber Gurney Flaps similar to what you see on NHRA Funny Car. You are still encouraging the flow to go around the front wheel opening.



    Again, this is just my opinion.

    The fun part is, that looks like the transaxle out of an Audi R8 or Lamborghini Gallardo, which are AWD cars. The last time I saw someone fit one of those to a different motor, it was in a Factory Five GTM and used a small block Chevy... So now I'm curious if you left the forward output shaft in place.
