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.

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...
Wooo!

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

Yep... The transbrake is holding the tranny between 2nd and reverse. NRE is speaking with Bowler now. Just want to get it on the road - oh so close !
