Looks like they were outside the shop enjoying a little sunshine while tweaking a few things. Thanks for the pic.

Well, the part you can't see are the wheel tubs and frame notching, so the SST normally has 345 DRs on it. That will help some. Maxed out the car can handle 390's.

There were a few at the show driving it around at an easy 35-40 knot cruise speed. It is fun and can be a deterrent at the same time.

Ok so here are some videos of the SST, they are still low rev street tuning, because they are still adjust the rear so once he punches the throttle it wont be going side ways. Well enjoy
this is starting it and tuning the idle a bit


Getting on the road!


and some drive by's

Wow Cali !! Thanks for posting the videos. I owe ya one - or more.

This is the first time I have seen these too. I know they have to put the proper fuel maps in since it is in default open loop mode right now. Can't wait for the lower control arms to be fixed so they can hammer it. After modifying the upper control arm to clear the monster CV joints, the lower control arms are maxed out and still "loose". The last thing is to put this into a curb while testing. Thanks again Cali.

Well it's kind of stealthy. I guess we thought it would be a little quieter but it is pushing an awful lot of air. Also, the best mufflers I have heard so far are on Andre's 429. Once back here may try a set of those.

I think it sounds perfect. It is really quiet for what is under the hood. I wouldn't want my car to sound stock. Stock is too quiet. (That was the first thing I said when I got my car.) I don't like a car to be ridiculously loud either. I love how the SST sounds in that video. It has a modest growl, yet no one would ever guess what's under the hood.

However, I do know that the sound in a video never sounds like it does in person. I have to book my flight to Florida soon.

There is a very good reason why they went with that controller, and it's because guys between the ages of 18 to 35 know the pattern of the buttons very well due to the large amounts of time spent using it for gaming. Thus, the soldier will not have to learn a new pattern of button pushing.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I see the Xbox controller on a lot of military applications now days. It's easy to hack, and everyone knows it.

Thanks. Still should be deceiving for many when it is going down the road. Looks pretty normal at cruise.

Thanks bud. It will be nice when the control arms are fixed and the throttle blades can actually be cracked open some.

You hit the nail on the head. The easier way to drive it is autonomous or setting waypoints on the tablet, but for real-time driving most military love the XBox. It is so second nature. Especially at 100 knots.

Custom cut tires by Goodyear. You could order some but the cost would be prohibitive. They are literally hand cut. Have the clip somewhere of them doing those.

Wow my friend you might just have the coolest toys on the forum!! I like how low SST is I was not expecting that I think it sounds great not like you can hear the turbos at idel or anything!! So what's next a little more tuning and you get it back?? Are they going to put it on the track to see what it does or are they leaving that in your hands???
Thanks Andrew!!

That's absolutely amazing!

1) Because it's ALIVE!!! (and on video! hehehe)

2) Because you could pull up next to that and never think it has anything but a cam and loud exhaust or something....then BAM!

The one thing I'm loving about this build is, it doesn't sound obnoxious going down the road. It has a nice sound of a good cam and exhaust. I can't wait to see the NRE break in video, that's going to be some fun footage to watch.
