Performance Comments:

she goes pretty well it came out standard with a quatermile time of 14.4 im pretty sure it will smash that now thats pretty good when you think that the car is very very heavy. i know that it eats gen threes for breakfast i got told that it shoul make 400hp at the wheels now but better when i put my 750 double pumper back on im only runing a 650 at the moment to run it in
