Zoom muddafarkin zoom. It's amazing what a tube frame, carbon fiber, 3 cylinder snowmobile engine and Hoosier slicks will do. And he was fastest time PAX, with an index of 1.00.

Damn.

More impressed seeing a modified street car tear it up. Of course a shifter kart etc is going to tear it up w/ low weight and excellent handling.

Oh look, some people showed up to bench race the AM car. It's interesting that this thread was up for four days until Todd decided to make a crack, and now everyone wants to play. Keep the jaded attitudes in CI. It's ironic that this is the same crew that defended the Veyron as amazing when others pulled the same thing with that car. Some guy built a sick car (which is nothing like a kart at all) and can drive it. If any of your hopped in that machine, and gave that guy the keys to your 'tour, he'd whoop you.

I wasn't quite understanding what was going on in this thread. But I guess I get it now. Like phil said, the driver can out drive you and the car he built is better than anything you can wet dream about. See it in action; it's awesome. I don't understand some of the comments here. It's an autox vehicle, it and the driver kick butt,,, so are some of ya'll just mad you don't have the driving skills nor the ability to build that caliber of a vehicle?
