Its no 80 Series but I could use it as an occasional driver. You know like milk and bread runs to town. Or a parts shuttle

That's pretty sweet. I can't imagine what 270 mph would feel like behind the wheel. I wonder if you can actually make a profit building a car like that.

I've been driving one of these lately (on my Iphone). RR3.

That's what I was thinking. That thing did not really start slowing its acceleration until after 200+ Up to that point it seems to have no resistance to speed.
