Lol, if your hat is a Ford, does that make you slow and disabled?

Just finished unloading and driving someone else's car in my garage, in the snow, at 3:00 am, with no shoes.

Wasn't quite the joyride I was hoping for

And turns out someone called cops on us, so that was nice. (It actually is nice one of my neighbors called cops because they thought garage was getting broken into)

Lola. See the raises on each side of the body? That will make it way more stable. For more speed you will have to cut some of that rear spoiler off.

But I am diggin the 917 body

I hurt my lower back messing around with cars last night. Also the driver's seat has side supports for helmet, so every time I turned to look backing car off of trailer I'd snack my face with it.

This is gonna be a shock to most of you, but I'm kind of accident prone

Yeah, I already ordered the Lola. Im cutting the whole back out and some of the spoiler so it will flow. Then om cutting 2mm carbon fiber to make bigger rear fins for more straightline tracking and stability.

Street Eliminator Concept | JConcepts

I've had the chassis built for over a year, lol. I built chassis like the next day after seeing that jconcepts article. That's why it's so dusty.

probably shelf queen, run once in a while. It's not going to be particularly fast or anything. The tires they make for these are based off of short course rear tires, and they don't hold up to big power or speed.

Is it drag car, I just can't imagine it would ever be competitive with the more purpose built drag car. It's gonna be heavy and what not.

My original intention was wild power drag car, but my tires came with warning about excessive power. Before tires came in I had 6s system in there.
