Unknown. It is completely up to the transport company. They determine it on the fly based on delivery locations.

Well, it is FINALLY happening...

The SST gets picked up Wed/Thurs. It is confirmed by all this time.
NRE took the car out this past weekend and did some high boost runs.

Race driver and Tom as co-pilot have tested many, many fast cars. They both said when the boost comes in on the SST rpms rise like a rocket - much quicker than their 427's. I can't quote their exact words since this is a family friendly website, but it was colorful... They both said even at the levels they could check, it is a single digit car.

Low/no boost it drives like a grandma's car.

I told them not to worry about the factory tires, so they proceeded to do a 550 foot burnout laughing the whole time. They figured that was long enough to 'christen' the SST. Tom said he will post some pics/video but they will be tame. They don't want to get in trouble for some of the runs they did...

Delivery date to Florida is June 20th. It has only been 1,078 days since it left...

I'd have been in a straight jacket 2 years ago.

Is everything good to go the way you want it?

Sounds like they have it in tip top shape.
