Wanted to answer a few questions. The pillar gauges are Boost and AFR and they are made by AEM. Mounted low in front of the drivers seat is an Autometer trans temp. The green LED light is for the meth system and the small red LED lights are a low pressure warning for the turbo oiling system. The red toggle switch is the trans brake...it is covered because i didn't want to accidently activate it. There is a small round switch in between the drivers seat and the center console which is the electric exhaust cutouts. Thanks

Well.....what a terrible ending to a great car. The car was sold but waiting on inspection/funding from the new buyer and this happened today. I just parked the car after arriving at work and 15 minutes or so later, up in flames! Myself and others tried to fight it with extinguishers but could not keep up..... No one was hurt so it was a good day! p.s...IMHO, it was a Bad ****!!!

Not sure wtf happened..... it was running awesome!! The fire chief said he was going to call it "undetermined source" or something like that. I hope i don't get reamed too bad with insurance. It was my daily driver so i had normal insurance, was not able to get Grundy insurance because i drive it everyday

Boy, that sucks.
Could have been something simple like a wire touching a hot pipe, happened to me once.
These fiberglass cars burn so hot & quick, sucks.
