General Questions / Final fit before registration and bodywork
« on: January 06, 2009, 01:45:27 pm »
Well guys and gals , it's been a great 14 months since I received my Hurricane. I'm glad I took my time with all the details. It is now ready for body work. But, not before registration. I plan to hit the road as soon as it is finished. I'd go crazy with a painted and finished car with out any tags on it. Would have ridden it @17  but not now. (Older and wiser). Paint and finishing should be done by Easter or sooner. I try not to rush,disappointment always follows if the goal is not reached.
Enjoy.
Regards: BDF

General Questions / Wheels and tire sizes?????
« on: August 24, 2007, 10:32:42 am »
I've been reading the posts and veiwing the build pics and decided to go with the 17" wheels. I need to know if a 17"X9.5" with 4" back spacing wheel with a 275/40/17 tire will work on the front. I saw that HM 1073 put this tire on a 17"x9"wheel with a 4" BS but has not set the body on yet. I've ordered a set of Buniks for my future HM and need to know if I have to make a change in backspacing or rim width? Hurry please so I can change the order if I have to.
Waiting on info: BDF :-[

General Questions / TRANSMISSION CLEARANCE ISSUES
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:18:07 am »
Guy's I plan on putting a ZF 6 speed from a C4 vette tranny in my HM Cobra when I finally make the deal (I like the final ratios for crusing).I read that this tranny is a couple inches longer that the T56 and sets about 3 inches higher from the input shaft. With the wealth of knowledge in this fourm would somebody help guide me in this installation. Does the tunnel support the extra room needed? Yes, I will be building a Chevy powered Cobra  :P
Regards: BDF

P.S. I have the downpayment and waiting to sell the next Bowtie to finish the deal. I can't wait to enter  
"The Darkside" >:(

General Questions / Is this kit right for me?
« on: July 12, 2007, 03:57:22 pm »
I've been looking at Cobra kits for years and was set on purchasing another brand when a pal o mine turned me on to Hurricane motorsports. I like the kit and the name(From south loiusiana, we kinda deal with hurricanes down here) I need to know if this kit is right for me. I'm 6'4" tall and have only fit in two cobras before. They were the Superformance which retails for about $42,000 rolling chassi (Way too much for me)and the Factory Five with the lowered seat pan kit (priced right but need donor). Will this car allow me to shoe horn in and not numb my rear and legs?
Please reply guys I see that family atmosphere among you and really like the support that you give

Well the day has come in south Louisiana. HM1111 has hit and it was a great ride to lee's Summit Rd. Just a short 14 1/2 hours. all by my self to start assembly in my mind. It all started the day after Thanksgiving and I've spent only about 8 days on the build. It feels good to be on the dark side. wish me luck guys and keep the support coming.
