    Besides the drivetrain being original and bitchin, I absolutely love the steel wheels. Whether they are steel, aluminum, iconel, magnesium, or whatever. They are bitchin and timeless.

    Sounds amazing. I’m not sure this was the first run since the computer screen at 1.45 shows the power and torque from the previous run and its almost identical …. great video none the less
