Seems a little late given that you're already building, but I'll play:

- You'll get hit by sand and smalls stones, always wear glasses.
- Be prepared to be beaten about the head by wind
- Prepare to be deaf in one ear, both from the wind and the exhaust
- Be prepared to hear "is that a kit?" over and over, even after you say no
- If it rains, you're going to get VERY wet, especially when turning
- You'll constantly worry about every single nut, bolt, wire, and weld coming loose
- You can't honestly say that you'll be home on time because you can't be sure something won't break
- If you use a straight rear axle, potholes are going to hurt
- Unless your name is Jack, Locosts don't really attract the ladies because they see where all your time goes
- You will have to try very hard not to drive like you're 16 and showing off

Yeah that's about it.


Wow. Absolutely nailed my experience so far. I'd add: - You will stink like exhaust after every drive.
