Just wondering how the car felt at those speeds? Did you experience the front end float at all?

Having a group to do that with is pretty awesome. I have a few car guys around me that are into these detailed builds, but nothing like the groups you are finding. Unfortunately the car scene around here kinda sucks. Gonna make my car REALLY stand out lol

Very stable. I've hit 120 a few times on this super sweet section of the freeway not to far from my house. The only difference I could tell was the roughness of the road. No floating that I noticed. I won't be doing it again though.

You have no idea how much attention the car gets because of your work. It's silly. Posters will be in the mail once things calm down.

Won't be doing it again, but i will say that it's nice to know everything is solid enough to go 132. Keep in mind, this is the first engine I've ever built. I had a great teacher watching me like a hawk though. Jeff is really to blame... or I mean give credit to.

Start a group! Seems like a lot of people are looking for more than just a show and shine to attend. It's a all about the ride.

Tried to get out and take advantage of the empty streets. Depressing to see how many barricades have gone up and how dark the strip is. Really weird to drive by and see the major casinos with little to no lights on. I was kind of surprised at how dark some sections of the strip really are. Social Distancing is here for the foreseeable future. Going to be an interesting summer.







Thanks for looking!
