im pretty sure the center of gravity is just right about 2 inches above the wheel hubs... so I think its pretty stable since those wheels and drivetrain are heavier than the body itself.


edit: lol now that I take a second look at the vid, did anyone notice the wind-up keys above the rear tires?

That's a very large turbo. Looks like it's an 88mm or larger. Possible power: 800-1500hp

Wind up keys are awesome. Makes me want to have one sticking up on my trunk. Have it start spinning when it reaches positive boost: WIN.
