It looks like if your car battery dies, you are screwed. How would you open the hood or the doors. No latch. Maybe crawl in from the trunk and to get to the inside if you don't lock it. Just wondering....

My guess, you'll have to have a very low powered 4cyl and NOT go racing, the twist/flex of torque/speeding thru the twisty stuff would totally mess the frame/body of a normal car modded with this. Your gonna need a full nascar spec rollcage and it'll have to be welded to the roof/body/frame/sub-frames/just about everything too...

UNLESS like i said you use the motor from a geo metro and drive like grandma
