So some kinda cool news for the SST.

I'll pick it up for ya..

See you in about a month. I'll take the long way back...

Hey, thanks for all the offers to pick up the SST...

If it was a bus we could all go for a ride, but it is just a sammich delivery vehicle...

Something tells me it will take just a little to get used to its characteristics on the streets. You can turn the boost down to the lowest setting, but it still pretty stout. I think it was 883 hp at that level. The funniest will be the first couple of times on the road with 275 PZeros... Don't want to waste a new set of 345 MT's.

I think next week there will be some pics and videos assuming we get a tranny glitch taken care of. (That IS the last thing on the hit list) Line Loc and the Trans Brake can make for some interested stop lights...

Damnit. There was a bunch of stuff I wanted to do today. Would've probably gotten to it, if it wasn't for rush hour traffic. I'm going back home tonight and won't get to swing by and check out SST.

When you finally get a video of this beast running it's first 1/4 mile it will probably be the most-watched video on this forum lol. Can't wait to see and hear this thing in motion!

So glad to hear the SST is up and running!!

EDIT: Hey Bruce, I'm sure you never cared about the weight of your car since you been adding a bunch of bulletproof parts. But when your done can you hit a weight station and maybe PM me or post here what weight it is with you in the car? I'm just kind of curious about how much weight it adds to the stock L99 weight of 3913 lbs.

Wooo!

"Low" and "883hp" in the same sentence makes me giggle.
