Overall awesome.

The damn powerplant feels like a nuclear reactor at 282 whp, 221 lb/ft.. Just effortlessly catapults the car forwards. Torque steer for days in first and second. About as quiet as stock, but snarls when highly provoked. Spot on.

We drove the car 1,050 miles each way to Gainesville and back to Killeen. In between drove six (6) 20-minute sessions around a road course. Drove an additional 150 miles or driving around at our destinations, and at the end drove back home to Shreveport.

A total of 2,500+ road miles with two (2) hours of hot lapping a race track stuck in the middle.

Never skipped a beat.

Total mechanical mayhem: One ac compressor, which failed for our way home. Changed the oil.

More plans for when it goes back to Ashton in a few months.
