Nice. I think the fact that it is a manual is the most impressive thing about it.

It has stock V6 Camaro brakes, which is sort of amusing. :)

Gotta fit under the drag wheels.

Then again, I am sure the parachute makes up for it. :thumb:

Quite impressive considering being a stick and the race weight.
