love the color as well. I don't know why we don't see more deeper reds and candy reds anymore..................... harder color to do right I guess.

my guess is $$$. Plus a lot of those colors were originally done with laquer based paints, not the environmentally friendlier paints the manufacturers have to use nowadays. maybe it's just too hard of a color to make?

I think you're on the right track. I've seen some of the guys like Chip Foose and others on the car shows on HD Theater do the candy reds, and it's an involved and layered process .................... money and the environmentally friendly paints required for mass production don't lend themselves well to the special finishes.

Not quite as much HP as I would like to see, but with the low weight, that's still haulin' ***. What do you think, 11.7 in the 1/4?

Yea, the 2400 lbs makes a big difference, and with the 340 torque, I bet this thing has more of a "muscle car/old school roadster" low end push you into the seat kinda feel to it

The 1/4 ET calculator puts it at 12.19. So It looks like we might be splitting the difference

I ordered a digital hygrometer and some humidifying gel today for my humidor. I'm thinking about ordering another humidor (Presidente Dos Cigar Humidor | Overstock.com) to use at home and take my current 30-50 count one to my gf's apartment... or just have the two.
