That looks amazing! If Toyota ever brings back the GTFour like they've been bringing back other chassis' the interior should look like this.

I was wondering what happened with this car, it still looks as epic as ever. Any reason you went with an aftermarket ECU instead of repairing the CS one?

And the great build continues. I like how you handled the battery box. I'm still not sure what I will do with mine.

Icicle is going to have some power upgrades in the future so it made sense to switch over to a standalone ECU now for future targets.
