Supporting RX-Snake
 
So you're thinking, gosh I'd just love to support this project but I just don't know how. Well wait no more, we'd be delighted to take your money or other valuables. :thumbs_up:

MONEY - METHOD 1:
PM me and I'll tell you how

100% of all funds received will go to the project; not hookers and blow. Truly any amount is appreciated.

PARTS
Maybe you don't have spare cash, but say you have some old parts you aren't using, and aren't ever going to use and wouldn't mind just getting rid of. Well, why not donate them to us and we'll sell them and use the proceeds on the project car. If you're interested in this possibility, please PM me.

SPONSORSHIP
Hall Fabrication & Racing for providing a Renagate Sequential Shifter

If you are a business entity and you wish to sponsor this project, PM me and we can discuss possibilities.

GIVING CREDIT (Updated as the project goes along)
Parts and Labor
- joedls donated the Ford SBF long block, Top Loader and B&M 174 blower.
- 94cobra69ss396 built the cage, and worked on the engine and trans mount, as well as the engine itself
- kdracer73 donated a brand new electric fan
- a colleague of mine at work donated a GrannySpeed engine craddle and trans mount for SBC and T5


Money
I am generally underwriting this project and guarantee it will be completed. Donations of money, etc., help the project go quickly and raise the level of the project. In other words, I'm not using it to save my money, but to raise the performance of the project as a whole.



================================================== =============
FULL DISCLOSURE - LEGAL STUFF (Boring, you can just skip this and give us stuff. :))

Motorgen.com is organized as a general partnership, not an LLC or other corporate entity. Therefore, it cannot easily own property, like a car. This project car is registered to me personally. If while owning the car we become a corporate entity the car will be transferred as an asset to Motorgen.com. The purpose of RX-Snake and any future projects is to have fun with users and to promote the mission of the site. They will not be held forever. When it is sold, 100% of the proceeds will roll forward into the next project. Any user who donates a major component like an engine system or driveline, can negotiate for its return prior to sale. This gets a bit complicated because of additions and modifications, but we can work it out as gentlemen.

Q: Is RX-Snake a "club car"?
A: Yes and No. Yes, it is part of the intent that any member who makes a major contribution in money, parts and/or labor to the project AND is able to drive a sub 11 second car safely may do so when we take it out to events. Major contributors like joedls and 94cobrass396 (so far) can even take it out and campaign it on their own if they wish. No, if you come out for a day and turn a couple bolts or if the fastest car you've driven is an accord, chances are you won't be driving it. This seems fair and safe to me.

Q: If I qualify to drive it, do I have to sign a waiver?
A: Hell yes! Nuff said.

Ah you got it out of your system. Everyone drives into a loading dock at some point in their life. :sm_up_there:

This doesn't seem fair. Sean watches us and gives us works of encouragement. He even gets a little dirty by rubbing dirt a grime on himself. That should allow him to be able to drive the car. Then again that brings up the issue of whether Sean can actually drive a 11 second car. I know he basically has one now, but he can not drive it anywhere near that!! :smack::drink:

In his case it's ok, he'd probably turn a Veyron into a 13 second car. :smack: :sm_up_there:
