Re: Creative Sports Cars - Venom GTE

Has anyone looked at their build video? Did you see the rear subframe fitted and the front bolt sitting in a nice little undrained cavity just waiting for some salty road water to fill it up?

I would add that the money saved by not using additive will easily go a long way to pay for hardened seats should they need doing in the future
