What's included in the Super Speedster body/frame kit ?

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The mid engine Super Speedster assembly package is designed to be very DIY user friendly not only in the ease of assembly, but also allowing procurement of most of the finishing components only when you need them and from whom you wish to buy.  This keeps initial cost down and paced as you finish the car.  This DIY Super Speedster kit is for the enthusiast who not only wants the gratification of successfully building his own car but also ending up with a true sports car with proper appearance, handling, braking, and safety
