I'll chime in.

I ordered mine at the end of August in 2020, so take that with a grain of salt. But at the time, I canvased the entire area within an 100 mile radius of RDU. Invited dealers to...

Thank you for your thoughts Trakclub. I always appreciate your analysis.

The stopping distance in the 1LE is incredibly short, and (if I'm not mistaken) one of the best among mass produced cars.

Ironically, in the case of abrupt braking to avoid a car in front of us,...

Ask yourself:

2) Do I really need 650 HP?

This was recommended to me while I was at VIR last weekend, but haven't tried it yet.

How much cooler was your engine oil temp once you ran at the track with the rain guard removed?
