The engine is an awesome mix of old and new school. I love the serpentine setup, very nice

wow I am impressed with the results, thanks for sharing! Any specs about the engine setup? Looks very epic so I expect quite some custom made parts!

I have been following this build for a while now. Excited with each update.

Could you describe the function of these chassis sensors?

The chassis senors are to measure down force and lift, this is needed to set the car up. The engine is the work of Whitey from German Automotive with 1699cc
