If you look at it long enough, it kinda makes the Blackflea look like it's pregnant.

That is slick! I'd hit it so long as it's caged.

Now just turn Basjous loose on this and you could probably go coast to coast on a D battery.

I am wondering did he cut the rear pillars and the firewall near the windshield and tilt the glass back with the roof or is the roof just sloped down with the glass in the normal position.

If it has the factory glass sloped more I might try doing something similar to the metro body I just got that I plan on swapping my xfi into this summer.

It looks to me like the windshield & frame are original. It may slope back a little because the rear of the car is lower.

I was wondering the same thing. I think he raked the windshield back. Look at the shape of the "blank" for his door mirror. Compare it to mine, which is pretty much equilateral:



Also, I can't see the seam between his front quarter panel and the A pillar. If you want a closer look, you can zoom in further if you click the top pic, then click it again in the wiki that hosts it.

Rather obvious now that you mention it. Yup.
