    Welcome to my build thread! I'm constantly updating it with either mods or adventures/events. Hit me up on IG @R8CEHORSE (link on my sig) for more content.

    A little backstory...

    I bought the car 'cuz I'm a sucker for good design but wanted a track toy as well. After a trip to SEMA in '15 I decided to trade in my 5 month old Acura
    TLX(my third UA chassis Acura at the time, 4 total) for a brand new Guard ’16 GT PP with a 6 speed and Recaro seats.

    The concept was clear moving forward that I would create a modern day OEM+ style Track Car.

    Then:

    Thanks man, I would say that every day out is better than the last.

    To be honest with you, I didn't have confidence in the car to push it hard in stock form. It was a little too "floaty" even on the street.
