Hello XJLIFE, My name is Steve Meyer and I live in Hixton, WI. I just joined the Forum and I am planning to build a Gobin using a SS TC. Any chance I could look at yours and hear about your build experience? Thanks, Steve
Chad, thanks for putting this ride together in Missouri, unfortunately I won't be ready yet. A real bummer, was really looking forward to it, it's a great riding area. Hopefully something similar can be done next year or even in this fall, maybe more of us will have our kit cars done. I'm making some progress, but it's slow going.
IDRVSLO, I am new to the Goblin forum - just signed up this weekend. I have a question about your intercooler. I am assuming this is an aftermarket cooler, since it seems to be unique form all other photos and videos of TC Goblins I have seen so far. Did you order your kit without the SS/TC option? If so, which kit did you order? I am not a fan of the air to water intercooler living in AZ. Thanks, Tim.
Things no one tells you about building a kit car: It takes 45 minutes to order brake pads at the be parts store because the employees want to know everything about your build. Employees, plural, because invariably the one you're working with will call everyone else over to hear about your project.
