Driving the car has been a blast, but it's been a lot of fun talking to people that stop by after each run to check out the car after seeing it on track.

Little traffic in the first two minutes, but after that things open up and get a lot more fun:

sounds to me like your exhaust note has settled in very nicely.

Why don't you name your Youtube videos, so they are easier to find. And I'm working on mine as a budget like building my own subframe etc.. So I need to find a wiring diagram to mount up the gas pedal etc for the body harness

Did you post a budget breakdown on google docs somewhere? I dug through this thread and the one on the Atlanta forum but I can't find it. I'd love to look at it again as long as my wife doesn't see it.
