OK, I have to admit that there's a big part of me that's like "aren't there way, way, cheaper ways to make 900 hp?" But then I stop myself, because I know there are. That said, I still think it's an interesting build, and it totally sucks that as Patrick said, it crashed and burned at its first event.

As the sheik said in Cannonball Run (I or II?), "A drop in the bucket!"

Stuff happens when you race. I've learned that the hard way.

I think it's on this forum? But one of the funniest taglines I've seen was:

"So which did you think would be cheap? The racing part? Or the Porsche part?"

I think about it all the time. Cracks me up.
