I like the idea of keeping it as close to a Gen 4 as possible.  Something different.  Those brown seats look really familiar.  Got plans for the 2D?  My son just bought an older Tatum Sand Demon with an 091.  Looking to upgrde after this season.

Very nice and sensible redo- keeping the car open for visibility is great  - thanks for sharing the journey 

Albins "H" is an interesting choice, can you share why?

The goal is to keep it true to Funco philosophy for a duning car that's meant to withstand anything thrown it's way - not a camp queen - I picked up the motor and trans as a package so it made sense to me to refurbish update as needed  - The Albins H is a super solid trans made for max abuse, and is in a more reasonable :classic_blink: price range versus sequentials. These redos can easily and often turn into money pits - my intention on this build is focus on supplying mechanically what is necessary for "trouble-free" hard duning and a heavy foot driving - a 4 seat dune "track car"

Accessories and paint and panels go in and out of style -  R&D based revisions/engineering/solutions wont
