Default The Spool Bus thrash

Here is what about 11 of my friends and 3 strangers came up with in about 40 hours time. We thrashed on this 06 Chevy express van school bus that I got for $800. We chopped 55" out of the middle, added 2 $199 Ebay turbos, decapped the injectors, put a Walbro 450 pump in an impala SS fuel tank, made the pipes all out of whatever scrap exhaust, duramax intercooler piping etc we could find, put the shortened rear body back on, cut the drive shaft down to 20", and just got it running with a basic tune tonight. A couple of small things to button up and we will see if it will pull wheelies! I have a few larger variety friends that have volunteered to ride in the back seats for ballast! On a side note it has an 80" wheel base just like a Mini...

Plenty of room behind the axle for weight.

Default Too Much Time On Your Hands

But in a very interesting way
You could drop the roof about 8 inches for better aerodynamics

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
