Oh yea, driving that car is unreal. Only some throttle in first or second will send it into the rev limiter in milli seconds. At 2800 lbs, you have to be always on guard. This car will kill you in a flash if you screw up.

As for that electric vette, not impressed. I can say I designed and built my engine, as well as the rest of the car. What can that car claim, I charged the batteries, at only 600 HP.

That my friend is a work of art. Very impressive. Something I could never do and I butcher metal for a living. Nice job. I Agree about the electric Vette. Certainly does nothing for me.

The red interior was because the car was originally from Canada

First, You have to go to better beaches. Second, We will give you a pass on the red interior because you have the 5 point belts and a legal roll bar. Besides, if I crash your car, the blood will not be so evident.
