Very, very cool build, bud!

Wink 5 point rally mirror ftw.

Subscribed to this, really keen to see how she turns out, would never have imagined a build with suspension mods like yours and your planned engine mods could total under 40k

Usually you've got engage neutral to avoid cracking your windshield or review mirror, pull straight up with your chin/face out of the way as the release is very sudden. Quite a bit of force is required.
