In Arizona it'll be a 2018 (kit car brand) Special Construction. It varies by state, though. Here, if you have a replicar it is titled as the model you replicate followed by Special Construction. The best about that is you pay registration based on the year and value, so a 1960 Lotus Seven would only be a few bucks.

My main experience here is old school stuff- if you have a light drag car like a nova or Vega, you can get away with a turbo 350 that's mildly built. Throw that in a chevelle and it doesn't live as long even with the same motor. Same on Chryslers- a 904 trans in a dart can wheel stand every launch, put that in a charger with the same motor and see how long it lives. C4 and C6 in a Ford-same thing. Like I say I'm not an engineer just going off what I've seen at the track/experiences in life. No doubt the trans has to be able to handle the motor but in my experience that's only part of the puzzle. But I'm old.

Could be, but I have no clue why it would be like that unless the torque isn't hitting as hard in one versus another

Sorry it's been so long since I updated, I've never been good at that haha. I got the car started for the first time today and it was great. No fires or anything. I couldn't wait for the exhaust to come back haha. Heres a video of the first start too.

It was super close actually. Just a little bit more blue and darker like in the swatch pic against my truck. It turns a lot more blue in the sun.

Got to agree that's a really nice color. Whenever I have a chance I will probably buy a cheap lsj and do a goblin
