I ordered a set of Badland MX tires for mine as my Lockups came unglued once already and due to their age, not sure how much longer they will last. Katars don’t last more than a few packs for me so I’m not wasting money on them again.

Keeping the Typhon stock for now. This is going to be my road car. Just added the lwb EXB chassis and braces for now. About that bumper.I love it. I actually got an extra with this Jennys order that I'll put on my Typhon after the RPM wears out.

At this point, the goal is just to have a good road worthy, parking lot basher. I didn't want to add to the fleet with an Infraction, Limitless or Felony, so I just took the Typhon one step further. With the suspension dropped low, it was already a ton of fun on road tires. The stretch is just to give it a little more balance and what I feel, is an awesome look. I might do some gearing switches just to fool around, but I don't have any top speed goals at the moment. I'll just keep watching you and the other speed freaks on the forum, if I need to see triple digit numbers?

I agree the stretched chassis gives the car some very nice stability and looks.
Trust me.... speed runner cars are a bit annoying because you can't really "use them". They get used for 2 mins at most and then packed away. Crashes are a common occurrence at high speeds, and quality roads for speeds over 100 are extremely difficult to locate.

Good call on making it a fun street car.

I don't run front bumpers on a Typhon as I find it bends the front eayer. Putting it on the outcast

Sh!t. I meant to say on my Outcast. I got the little T Bone on the Typhon. I know how much you like T Bone?

I had them on the front and rear of my stretched Typhon (sold it last year)
I thought it looked good with one on the rear also. I couldn't tell you now which versions/models they are, but maybe the picture could help.

I have your rear on my front. I might consider adding a rear now too. Just took it out for a quick run at work. It's a drifting dream, but got a little too close to immovable objects on some of the slides.
