Nice... "Faster than the other one" shows she's paying attention. And I never get tired of hearing SC whine.

So what does "built by" mean? It's loaded with kit from @GregsRaceParts ? Or did Greg *actually* build it up?

that sounds like it would have made for a much more funny video!

Well I haven't announced to the folks who sub my video but I actually bought the GRP car! literally the whole car has been rebuilt, not necessarily the whole engine, but greg has done a ton of work to the car and it's phenomenal! The s/c setup is one thing but the interior/exterior carbon work that greg offers is almost artwork in itself, just really nice quality parts!

Looking forward to more videos. Do you plan to take the car to MSR? Being in Pearland you are really close to the track.

I think you mean "girlfriend's reaction", or do you have more than one?

Also - "someone totaled it out"? Do you mean you crashed it and the insurance company totaled it?

I have never been to a circuit before, only drag but I would be interested in learning about it, I just don't know anyone who does anything like that near by

No grammar Nazi, I only have one. By totaled it out I mean someone totaled out my car as in I did not total my car, as in someone else destroyed my car beyond repairable damage so the insurance company thought

The Nazis committee genocide; I pointed out that you don't know the difference between plural nouns and possessives. Hardly the same thing.

Why haven't you posted your old car's VIN (along with what happened) in the salvage forum?

Given that you didn't post anything abut the accident, I'd bet even money that you totaled your car, not someone else.

No need to jump on the guy - he has a life outside of the forum and not everyone posts their business on the internet. Grammar Nazi, btw, has been a saying on the internet for a long while. Being how long you have been on this forum (posts wise) I would think you would be a bit more upstanding and not have to continue to degrade someone like this. Congratulate the guy on upgrading to a better Elise than he lost (especially at such a young age) and move on.

I didn't post anything on the car because the car is already posted on here with a salvage title. I did my research and drove 6 hours twice to inspect the car before I bought it after looking at it on here. Insurance will not pay to restore an already salvage title car.

Yea I would expect more of such a member too. Always a bad apple somewhere!
