Bespoke items always take longer than expected
Active GT40: with the # of custom items we’re looking for, we slipped past an end of year delivery…which means we didn’t have the Christmas Holiday to work on the car. It’s in the final stages and expect delivery in February. Chris remains great to work with, and the car is coming together nicely!!
ATL Fuel Cells: We finalized the details on the dual fuel cell…but similar to the most car builds, it takes longer than I would have expected…once we slipped the starting point into the Fall/Winter, it ~doubled the design/build time as that’s when all of the race teams are doing the same thing. They’ve been easy to work with, and have been accommodating of a few revisions to get what we wanted & also refined the details to reduce cost.
Mendeola Transaxle: this has slid into 2019 as well…they continue to be great to work with, and also really busy. I had envisioned an OTS (Off the Shelf) transaxle that they’d just crate up and ship…didn’t realize they do each one custom to the exact customer specs. Commitment is for early March.
