    Very nice, but think of what you can buy for that amount of dough.

    That frame has been out about 5 years now, that is Dan Howe's Monte Carlo pictured that got the first Schwartz Gbody frame.

    Yes, expensive. But.... It's more than just a frame. When you start adding up all that it gives you it's worth it. Optimized front suspension. Heavy duty rear end, less weight, and yet much stiffer. Those are all very important factors.

    Dan had it done and racing in 2012, so its even been more than 5 years.

    The IRS rear seems new... but you'd have over $20K in just the frame/rear end

    I suppose if you're a serious racer and have sponsorship, then perhaps I can justify owning one.
    it's a nice piece, don't get me wrong.

    The IRS is just for the wow factor. Supposedly faster lap times with the straight axle
