Can you work through the night with no sleep?

I spent roughly 10 hours building the car from start to finish. That does include having to disassemble the trans once after putting the diff in backwards (at 3am, right before I called it a night) and disassembling the front turnbuckles and counterboring the end of the ballcups a bit so that they do not rub the non-threaded section of the turnbuckle- even with some grease they were a bit tight and didn't want to adjust very easily. I also spent about 2 hours on wiring, but the wires on the sxx esc needed to be replaced so that added some time.

If you can get someone to help you, maybe build the shocks and turnbuckles, you could do it but it would likely still be a late night.
