Talking Got it registered

Gday Everyone
well its finally happened i got my car registered
i cant describe what a buzz it is driving these things around trully a V8 powered go cart i could not believe how smooth and nimble these cars are
although it doesen't have a windscreen as yet so it's quiete breezy but the adrenalin takes care of that but so much fun i am not looking forward to pulling it apart to paint it and finishing it of i just done the bare minimun to get rego so i guess i can take my time now
I also want to take the time to thank you guys for your comments and posts it really helped out in times of frustration but we are not finished yet
also big thanks to Phil N and Leeroy for organizing bits and pieces
cheers
jess

Can clearly remember the first drive of both Cobra's. Ahh the memories.

Have fun with your new toy.

Don't pull it apart yet, bring it up to the Nationals unpainted and give the car & yourself a good test out on the track.

No windscreen would actually make it faster.

Jess,

Really great to hear you are on the road "Oh what a feeling... Cobra"

Its a hoot driving without a windscreen but the bugs really hurt and are hard to get out of your teeth.

Well done.

Phil

Congrats Jess,
Can't wait until I get mine on the road. Would love to see a couple more pictures of your snake in its current state (ie before you really start work on it )

Hi Guys
well this is what it looks like so far its preety bare bones at this stage i just wish i had put a heater in it and im sure once the windscreen is in it will be a lot better
I wont be pulling it apart just yet i would like to get a few track days in as well as sorting the suspension out plus the occasional cruise
its funny when youre building it you dont realise what you got when its sitting on jack stands wires and hoses going everywhere then oneday it all comes toghether amazing feeling
cheers
jess
