It seems many people reading this already know what it is. Could you dumb the thread down a bit for those who are just tuning in?
Obviously "because I can" but why else are you building from scratch? I am a big fan of improve everything you can come up with an improvement for but usually there is something out there to start with too: use an existing chassis to house and tune a new engine or use an existing engine so you can tweak suspension to perfection.
Since this thread started with engine parts, what are you doing new/different/better with your engine? What have you got planned for the transmission? Clutch?
Thanks for taking the time to share with us!
