Default New chassis for Shell Valley Cobra body

I love the Cobra and always have wanted one. But, I wanted one with a race quality chassis and modern suspension, brakes, and steering. Working with Rich and Dana of Shell Valley I designed a chassis that uses the parts from the 1997-2003 C5 Corvette and Shell Valley's beautiful new body and Cobra parts. The result is a modern super car wrapped in Snake Skin.
I unveiled the car at this years Run n Gun where in it's first day of running it posted the fastest road course time for any Cobra running in the street class.
This car is now available as a Chassis/bocy kit. You can check it out at www.chesnutmotorsports.com. I know that my kit is not for everyone but I think that it offers a new high performance option. I know that the site has some errors in it and I will be correcting those shortly. I am thick skinned so feel free to critique the site and my car. My goal is to make both as good as possible.
Shelly Valley produces my Dragon kit for me and they will be producing the new Cobra as well. Their Daytona Coupe body fits my chassis too!
Have fun, John

John,

Glad you got the news out because it is a beautiful car and your design changes have made it unique and well done. Good luck!

John,
Any way for your to secure the molds for the other DM projects you've been working on since this recent SV news or do you have something else in mind?

John,
Based on what I'm hearing on this site, I would go grab anything and everything you have at Shell Valley now. That would include design / engineering sketches, software, mockups, molds etc before you have to request it all from a court.

John: is your kit still available? Your link does not work. Being a C5 Corvette owner, I am very interested in learning more about your Chassis.
