I finally got around to shooting some real-time video as the cars sits today. As you can tell there are many videos between the youtube footage and now, I will try and hasten their delivery. The white floppy things late in the vid are a couple of Tie-Wraps subbing for windshield wipers. Going fast sure creates a lot of wind noise.
