Having run around a road course with GT3s I will vouch for that bus hot rod.

I once saw a VW bus with Pantera running gear, nut it was newer sheetmetal than the thing in the video. The Pantera deal was very sanitary, no outward indications - they just had the license plat hinged so you could have a look - one of the cooler customs I have ever seen.

:cry: It won't get past about 10 seconds for me! It says it's all buffeted but will never get past that section! (I have extreme DSL and normally have no problems)

I'll try again this evening!

Pushing a brick

I wonder what powertrain that bus has in it to outrun a couple of rollerskates. It is definitely pushing a lot of air out of the way. Great video I hope its for real.
