I'm in CA dewd

And the carbon fiber tub surrounded by aluminum skeleton and all brakes/suspension bolts safety wired and the "feel" of the car just sitting in it made me horny LOL.

Some things on these cars are just ******* retarded btw. Like designed by 2nd graders.
For example the headlights: utterly ******* useless placement and next to no useable light output. Its truly sad how horrible the design is.
The seats are made of some hard rubber, something you'd expect a roller coaster seat at six flags to be made of. looks like they cost maybe 20 bux to make. A bunch of other stuff too that makes me wonder how much it really costs to make a car like this (engineering and design aside of course) cause its done cheaply.


Still the car is intense and makes everything else out there look and feel slow. And everyone ***** themselves when coming into our shop and seeing it LOL

Locost for lazy people with too much money. I'd be more impressed if it was homebuilt.
