Background & Plans
Had this car for a couple of years currently, ran a 1.23.2 at Waterford Hills road course, which is pretty great all things considered.

Blew it up at NCM in 2021. On an unrelated subject, a fairly stock 4.6 2v will turn 126 mph down the main straight with 7 cylinders, fun fact.

Currently being built for Lucky Dog Racing League (LDRL)/American Endurance Racing (AER)/Rental Usuage for driver education/ general HPDE.
