We are hoping to hit the low 11s. High 10s is probably not easy on the tracks around here - the traction is not that great.

Good luck, hope to see some video in the future. As a 1.6 owner it makes me tingly to see someone go through this much effort and see this much success. Very cool.

And quite possibly the slowest build in MT history. It's an awesome build for sure, but damn, almost 6 years in the making.
