Super Chicken Build

Postby KevinGale » Sat Mar 12, 2016 5:14 pm

Just for the few of you who haven't heard on facebook Paul Tinguad is working on a new Super Chicken to race at Mt Washington in 2017. As you all know building a car costs money and building a fast car is even more. I know most of you already have cars that are money pits but hey if you can spare a little bit visit the crowd funding page and make a donation. In return you can take some credit while you are watching him tear up the mountain. I'm hoping he puts a little fear into the pro rally guys!

Either that (mid) or the seat is in backwards and it steers from the rear wheels...

It might be good for the Philo rock turn or turn 14 at Burke. :lol: Though I'm not sure about the challenge of facing backwards.

I've been staring at this picture wondering what the hells going on.
With the looks of that home brew transfer-case, it looks like he's running the rear diff up front.
Awesome idea really, looks to be a 4WD mid-engine beast!

I know I have been slacking on this but here is an updated photo of the chicken. This is from back in December. Image

Most everything at this point has been taken back apart in order for final fixes before it gets put back together so a photo from today would look like the build has gone backwards....
