I've had a lot of fun building this car over the last 4 years, and firmly believe that the best way to fully enjoy your vehicle is to get in there do the work yourself. You will gain much more appreciation for the end product and at the very least have an idea of where to start should something go wrong...which it will. Anyone can do this stuff. I'm not a millionaire by any means. I'm a regular guy in his twenties who likes to go fast and has no free time

Crap!

What 'didn't work'?

Occasionally we get the cloudflare captcha but it should go right through after you do that..

On some forums, if you take a long time to post your session times out and is not saved.

If I'm making a very long post, I either type it in a word processor, or after I type it in the Rep[ly box, I copy it to the clipboard before I click Post.

BTW, the car looks killer!

I got it bro!

Build list:
RED!
Aluminum wheels
Rubber tires
Big V8 engine
Big hood scoop thingy
Window stickers
Seats
Belt driven thingy that whines like a little girl when I floor it!
Rear view mirror for watching other cars when engaging said belt driven whiney girl thingy
No hood, because there isnt a hood that can contain this much horsepower... in the color red.

I think that about sums it up!

But seriously, work on the list at some point, its a super clean car and i bet is pretty nasty on the strip! Be sure to save the build list periodically, i type everything in word, and save it while im making the long list, so if i mess up, i dont loose all that i typed, then copy and past to the forums here... I feel your pain!
