Good luck with the project. I was just curious if you might be using someone on Long Island.

Just an idea if you can’t trailer it there, drive it there and rent a car one way to drive back.

Yeah, I agree. Looks like they are hitting nearly all the upgrades properly and not doing it on the cheap. Only thing I see missing is a trunnion upgrade.

Had a few quick hits in Mexico....2016 Hellcat stock m6...side by side from a 30 roll till about 100mph then had to let off. Fbo big turbo older wrx...from a dig I destroyed him the 30 roll was worse. Audi RS7 twin turbo V8 awd...destroyed me from a dig. From a 30 roll I jumped a car ahead...he was slowly reeling me in before we let off. No track visit yet we are In lockdown till the end of May. The car pulls like a mf after 3500rpm...with the heads and the 391s with the stall keeping the rpms up its a blast to drive. The Nittos 555r struggle for traction. Not much to report but Im having alot of fun.
