        Total insane fun. Those lousy little 235 60's on the back wouldn't last the afternoon.

                        They were also an aerodynamic mess. Front end lift at speed was so bad (among other things) that GM scuttled the project. There is a guy up here in Norcal that is trying to run one in a NASA class. He's pasted a wing on the roll cage to try and help. He clearly doesn't have it sorted yet.

                          I'm confused, I thought you said there was a problem. ;)

                              Hmmm....

                              Doesn't look like a problem to me. Maybe you just can't drive?

                              It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.
