    Glad your starting early dude. I'm going to donate my s13 to my daughter when shes old enough to reach the pedals. I missed so many years not being allowed to go near a car till I was 17.
    So many of my mates were driving there dads cars or vans on private land years before they passed there tests and it shows when they drive now.

    Looks like you have a cracking little project there too.

    as long as u knew how to drive fully then there should be no issue, but peeps need that laminated unfortunately

    Also its a rather large risk on their part i geuss?

    ANYWAYS nice build so far! keep up the good work!
