Nicely said everyone. Yea you guys hit it on the head. I appreciate the feedback. Ive got a lot of insight on the (custom) world here. We get these guys that come from the navy at the shop. They come home and all they want is a custom car i dont know why they would but they do. There is a buyer out there. Yes as you mentioned it will probably take a couple months to sell especially with those dudes out at sea. But a custom car thats fast as well...someone will greatly appreciate it. There might not be that many people out there but there is someone who is. Its just a matter of finding him and enjoying the work on the project im doing.

Also going to look into more firm suspension. The system is weight in the back. The pull of the upgraded speed will cause the car to pull lean back more. Not a huge difference in weight i think 60 more because the spair is already pulled out. But i think its an upgrade worth investing in.
