Wow thats a lot harder then I have it. I have to be in a classroom for 24 hours(strected out over 3 weeks) listening to an instructor(half the time watching videos) then drive with an instructor for 6 hours. So its not bad at all for me.

I would have to change the gearing of it (geared for incredibly quick accelaration not top speed), put a new silencer, tires, mirrors, lights, indicators.
Not to mention tax and insurance. It would cost me so much
