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.

Sure is, and this:

- Roughly 4075 lbs race weight with driver (52.5% front weight bias)
That is a lot of weight to move that fast. Well done LPE

Quite impressive considering being a stick and the race weight.
