This build is still very much in its infancy stage. In his first video unveiling the project, Putsch installs the headers, mates the engine to the transaxle, and assembles the body shell around the drivetrain. There’s still a long way to go, but Putsch imagines that he will be able to take his creation on the track.
“Most people think the days of Jim Hall, Jack Brabham, and Dan Gurney are over; I say they are not,” said Putsch. In the video, he says that sports car racing is too boring and too expensive for the average person to compete in. He plans to enter his mid-engined Viper racecar into the National Auto Sport Association’s unlimited class, which allows for any engine, transmission, and aerodynamic combination.
