P1? Pssh, no thanks.
650S sprint? Nah.
How 'bout an MSO High Sport? I'll pass.

Give me a f*ucking Formula 1 car and call it a day.

Unbelievable! This is so damn cool. Now I want to go to Pure McLaren just to see this monster on the track v

Will you store at your house or does it have a permanent home at MTC unless you're using it?
heh Brandon...

It will most likely be at home with me in the winter and at MTC during the summer so it can be easily moved where it's needed... best of both worlds ! ;-)

MB,
Ever driven a super high downforce thingy? (not sure of your racing background) They are a hoot to come to grips with if you can pardon the pun.

MB,
Likely not applicable to you but I remembered doing a write up after going from bikes to a 2l Sports Racer then a Spice and finally into ChampCars. I just re-read it and it brought back many memories like the guy who just gave me my Super License looking in the rear view mirror of the pace car only to see me loop it behind him on cold tires (as we were forming up for the start)
