Neat car, but could you take your caps lock off?

THOUGHT ABOUT PAINTING THEM TO MATCH THE SSR'S BUT THEY DO ADD A TOUCH OF "BRIGHT" TO GO WITH THE BUMPERS AND DOOR HANDLES.

To Spitfirebill, in street use one of these motors has not blown up unless severly abused. With what this "toy" cost I have been driving it hard, but not abusing it. The ones used in championship winning historic racing hold together pretty good too.

cupcake, I plan to do all of that soon. For the last 18 months I have been recovering from a congestive heart failure condition. Feel much better now and will be working on and using the car this summer. Drove it 18 months ago and it seemed to fly, compared to its stock form. It had 52hp and 72lb-ft of torque in stock form and now has 100hp and 100lb-ft torque to the wheels.
