I traded the r8 for the perf then drove that for about a year until I decided to sell before the car market crashes back down.
Honestly I like the process of finding the car, building it the way I like, enjoying it for about a year and then sell. even when I say ima keep it forever, I don’t. it’s a pattern I’ve done for the last 10 years or so lol.
Loved both the r8 and perf so I’m sure I’ll have another ttv10 soon enough haha

After searching the Internet for countless days, I ended up ordering gloss black forgestar f14 in 17x10 for my drag set up. Didn’t wanna spend a shit load on forgelines and couldn’t find a wheel that I liked visually more than the forgestars especially for the price. I like how the spokes go to the outer edge of the barrel, which give a 17” wheel a larger look than most other options. Also found some 28” et street r’s in stock so got those ordered too.

Im debating doing the same before the market crashes. I have 5 cars right now and could stand to thin it out a bit while prices are still high.
The V might be one that goes we will see.

Looks like a nice build and pretty in line with the numbers we see on the auto LT4s.
Thank Matt! Yea Bill said we’d be somewhere around 850whp max effort on stock blower which is fine for a daily haha

So sick, makes me want to mod my V3!! I loved the video, this is awesome.
Out of curiosity, after having other fast cars and exotics, what do you like about the V3? Do you like it more than the V2?

Thanks man, i vote to mod away lol!
Video turned out great, but also made me realize how many issues there actually were when it got there. Bill told me about everything but seeing it on video puts it into perspective🤦🏻‍♂️
I like the updated look of everything on the v3, essentially it’s a redefined, more sleek, aggressive version of the v2. Being a luxury sedan also makes it way more practical having kids.
I haven’t even driven a v3 so I’m not sure if I like it more than my v2 yet, but I can’t wait to hear that caddy chop again every morning, it just hits different!

V3 wins in the backseat dept
