yea Im curious as well, so far The suspension components look nicer, the control arms, spindles, brakes etc. the steering rack and the steering u joints look a lot nicer, the rear end is a wash. The CSX car has a rear end with one shock and a tru track made by Kirkham. The ERA has a traditional jag setup with 2 shocks, inboard brakes. The sway bar on the ERA is a LOT bigger than the shelby.

I was never completely happy with the brakes on the ERA, the car would stop but I had to stand on it. The CSX has all willwood calipers & outboard brakes.

The ERA has the box chassis and the CSX of course has the round chassis.

I must say the ERA guys are excellent, the people who built my car are non existent. I am a gear head, so I can fix it, but if you want to buy a car and simply drop in a drive train dont get the shelby, get the ERA...

we will see
