First Drive
I hope this gives a few people some motivation. After 5 long years of building my car, it moved out of the garage under its own power.

PS it's all on private land

Great to see another Roadster moving on it's own power ;)
Milestone achieved - congratulations :)

I wish there was a road like that near me!

Keep posting some more videos

That road is my drive, I think I was doing about 40mph but I didn't have my speedo connected as it wasnt reading correctly. I can't wait to get it finished now.

Cheers for the comments guys. I love the sound at the moment but will have to put the exhaust on at some point. The acceleration was a bit of a rush when I hit 3rd. It was a real thrill taking the car out for the first time. It's been out 3 times since.

I'm hoping to get it Iva'd in the spring but I want it 100% before then.
