OK, Im new to the board as a member, but have been creeping around here for a bit. I have also been doing some research into the kit cars and lesser known performance vehicle market. I am wondering which of these wonderful kits and cars are able to be brought over here. I know the Ultima GTR is able to be imported, along with the K-1 Attack, and I heard rumblings of something from Noble coming over here...Basically what I am looking for is something I can build myself (or at least mostly construct myself) that resembles the Mosler MT900 or Saleen S7 in style and relative performance. I know the Ultima comes over here but does anyone else have any suggestions?

If I was going to build a kit it would be the Noble.

Id have to say go with the Noble also, but if you dont care about the Mosler resemblance and want to go for pure fury, get the Ultima. Lots of other good kits out there. Factory Five do some nice performance kits.

Get a phantom, i have been asking about them in a thread in the kit car forum. I forget the address but their website is either just getting started or they don't care to give much info on the car. None the less it is an awesome car.

Mac- I have checked out the Phantom, I think we are talking about the same thing, the tubular frame Lambo replica? Very hot but I am looking for something that looks different, not a replica (eventhough I like th Phantom and the Superformance MKIII, if I had to choose one)

I am still considering a choice between the Noble and the Ultima, but as of right now I have had better responses from Ultima's customer service on ordering and such...but even those are super slow or not at all. Noble (1g Racing) has yet to respond to me. Can anyone offer some info and possibly point me in the direction of companies that offer the engines for the Noble (Ford Duratec V6 TT). Thanks for all your time and help guys.

Go with the NOble, it is the best bang for the buck, and i do beleive it does 0-60 in 3.5 seconds with the right engine. So it oculd be a very fun car. Btw are you the Storm Shadow form SRO??

FYI - they are doing a Noble build on the Speed Channel's "Sportscar Revolution" show. It stars the same Canadian guys from Dream Car Garage...

IIRC they are only up to "painting the body" so far, so engine and tranny sourcing have not been covered yet.

I believe it is on Tuesday nights at around 8 or 9. It is wedged in between Tuner Transformation and another show IIRC...
