    Does anyone need a Replica Scuderia Bumper? It's too expensive to ship back to China, so I need to find a buyer in the USA.

    I don't even make 569whp with my TT . For what it's worth , i pulled away from a tuned / exhaust 430 so i happen to have real world experience . My guess is he is making closer to 475whp SAE corrected .

    The parts finally showed from Ferrari and the car is now being worked on. Estimated time to completion is mid March then I'll send it to Atlanta for the wrap.

    I wasn't happy with the height of the wing so I ordered taller risers.

    Next winters project will be a pair of snails.

    Yes. The entire car is getting painted black again. Once it’s painted, I’m shipping it off a few states away for a cool wrap.

    From experience, I think you should test the height from the driver's seat.
    I wish my wing was a little higher, or a little lower.
    My wing is blocking the view of what's behind me - like the COPS!.

    Transport picks the car up on the 16th to take it to Atlanta for the Rambo Wrap.

    20KG per seat is a nice weight saving!
