as for the drive shaft i am using a corvette driveshaft right out of a c4, as for the rear end i upgraded it to the mazda turbo rear end. i did have a 10bolt back there and i broke it in the first day. it wasn't to hard to do it but man what a waste of time and money putting that 10 bolt back there. but the rear end i have on there now can handle 400 hp and 400 tq. i am at 331hp and 361 tq so i am happy right there. now if i do the heads that i want to do then i am going to be in trouble..lol and thanks for the welcome!

Nice car, I like them, but so many people seem to have modded the hell out of them I've lost personal interest in owning one.

YES mmm, I bought from IAAI insurance aution. Sometime I see those go for cheap either wrecked or theft recovered with no motor.

Would be great to find a mint body with no motor for around $3-$4k then try to find a cheap LS1 motor from a million different cars than cam the bitch.

lol thats what we do we find them with no motor or tranny and we put the lt1 or ls1 in it and call it a day. :)

Was looking at pics of your RX and noticed a crucial component missing you should take care of right away,

I'm not behind the wheel...

What a beast, that's bad ass. How did you get the vette motor to fit, custom mounts?
