    Sometimes. I do trailer it to the start of DragWeek, and then beat on by driving it over 1000 miles and racing every day at each track along the way. Can I drive it to all the events? Absolutely! This is built to be a street car that goes fast. I trailer it because I might break something, and renting a uhaul for that distance is just stupid. If we ever have another Marauderville, I'll drive it.

    You're too funny Joe... to me it looks like a race car with license plates. Don't think many 03-04 Marauders came from the factory with a tubular 4 link with heim joints , an aluminum center section 9", a fuel cell & a parachute.

    Curious, what does your car do in the quarter?

    LOL! I have struggled in the last 3-4 years with getting the power to the ground. The Dyno shows the motor making well over 4 digits, and 980+ to the wheels stopping short of 8000 rpm. My issue has been getting a torque converter to stall high enough to spool the turbos. Last year we think we solved the problem but COVID hit and the car never left the garage. When I've had my shots, I am certainly looking forward to taking it to the track and get that 8 second time slip finally.

    OK....I retract my previous statement about it being lightly modded.

    It's got a few more bolt-ons than I thought.....
