    Factory Five GTM

    Anyone considering building a GTM or using the chassis to build an exotic? It looks like a real solid platform or is it too specifically designed for their body?

    I thought about this idea before. I think the GTM chassis would make a good platform. Not a cheap one though. I was toying with the idea of how it'd be a great canidate for a 360 kit. Not sure about the dimensions though. Drivetrain and suspensionwise it'd be perfect, using vette donor parts.

    The wheelbase of the GTM is 98 inches i think... some 4 inches short for a 360.

    I gave it some thought.....! That is, until I asked a couple of questions to their REP at Carlisle last spring. The 'snotiness' of this guy was unreal! Maybe he felt I didn't have the cash... his loss!!! I am presently considering a Superformance SPF gt.

    pricey, but I can't stand 'snotty nosed' individuals who think you MUST buy their Cobra product before they would entertain selling you a GTM.
    They lost my respect...
