First Start

Getting a lot of help from this forum and people building this car.

Here is the video of my first start. My friends found it kind of funny so I thought I would share it here.

I will post some pictures as soon as I get myself organized.

Great job sounds nice. Your buddy should have told you to study because everyone has trouble with surprise tests.

Clay-

Congratulations, she sounds great!

The Coyote engine has a really nice sound to it to be sure.

What a huge day. I bet you are happy and relieved that it worked so well. I think your friend forgot about the clutch too, he just did a better job of covering it up, and he only remembered just a bit before you did...

Congratulations again, and thanks for sharing.

Regards,

Steve
