MAC is not a function car, thats a show car. To get buyers interested in the company.

IND Green Hell, is a function car with some "show," pieces to give it some taste.

If they wanted to they could have saved the paint job and made the car weigh 3,000lbs. But they didnt, becuase its not for that.

thanks, and ive seen macs car, nothing bad about it, it looks great in person, but it isnt made for the track like this is, anyone, can throw on brembos, a supercharger, some racing seats, and some pretty parts,
this car was and is currently as the description states, being dialed in for track use, this is basically a better gts is every way with even more,
while seeing a car like this is nothing new, its the parts they used and color choices which make it unique,

This car does have a well written story about racing in it's introduction.

I would like to see some pics of that actual custom work on this car, the wide body which in my opinion is the coolest part. All the other bolt ons we've seen before.

This car does have the better photographs and video though
I'm sorry, but there is nothing similar about this build to Mac's, other than that they're both a custom green. Mac's car will never see a track...

Point being one was built as a show car and one was built for the track. Sure, they both have 4 wheels, brembos, roll bars, etc...

whether it's for the track or not is just how you look at it. they have a lot more in common than that and far less that is not in common.

Nothing similar at all. Different trunks, rear diffusers, exhausts, wheels, brakes (this has brembos and the MAC one has stoptech's), different front lips, different roofs, different seats, different superchargers, etc... the only similar thing is that they both have roll bars. They aren't even the same green!

IMO this one is much nicer than MAC's.

I'm not saying either is nicer than the other. I'm just saying it's almost the same. different shade of green is not really much of a difference. Both are stage 2 supercharged, with full exhaust, lowered on KW, front lips, roll cages, upgraded brakes....etc. Those are all bolt ons, many people on this forum do. The real custom work is the wide body, and both cars share that in common as well.

I understand what you mean now, but there isn't much that can be done that is "custom" without it being overdone.

You guys really have great taste. Another stunning piece of work - the details are what sets it apart, but finding the details is the tough part. Great job!
