Far to often I have thought this....

The car may be crashed in a year. What may be equally as devastating would be it sitting in someones temperature controlled garage collecting dust. That car NEEDS to be driven and driven hard and not just in a straight line.... thank Pedders for that
No question that car deserves to be on the track. Unfortunately it will probably end up rolling up and down the streets of the "hood" with thug rap music bouncing it up and down (another reason for those Pedder upgrades).

As detestable as most professional athletes are, it's more detestable to see people put them on a pedestal and scramble to associate themselves and/or their businesses with them.

I wouldn't lay all the issues with pro athletes on this guy's doorstep. The fact that this guy is Chevy man tells me he's probably a few cuts above your stereotypical pampered athlete as far as judgement goes.

Indeed, that does say allot about him. I hope I'm wrong about the kid and he has fun with the car and doesn't hurt himself or anyone else with it.

That's one cool ass car!!! I don't much care about the rest. It's good for him that he's made something of himself.

Nice build. $138K is a steal for that level of fabrication.

I hope that kid knows how to handle the kind of power that car is going to produce. That level of power will break the tires loose goosing the throttle traveling at highway speeds. I suspect that car will be totaled inside of a year.

It's amazing how people can make millions by contributing little if anything to the advancement of technology or society in general; for running fast and jumping high. Go figure
Just so that you know, this car has 3 power levels to choose from starting at 650hp, so hopefully he will have enough sense to start easy and work his way up, but who are we to say he can't drive because he is an athlete?
