Though we suspect Big 3 will happily build one in any factory hue, during our demo flight ripping around suburban Detroit, we were ever-so thankful for this Stroker's tactful, "don't-arrest-me" Vapor color scheme. Its contrasting gray hood and side stripes, as well as the gray-spoked 19-inch TSW rims, suggest that a mature, conservative driver might be housed within. With its psycho personality, this is a lot like dressing Charles Manson in a Brooks Brothers suit.
So, let's summarize: Are we enthralled and titillated by the Big 3 Performance Stroker's volcanic power? You betcha. Would we have loved more seat time to try and bring our reflexes up to the speed of its throttle response? Oh, yeah. Would we ever consider driving it in the rain? Not on your life.
If you have the guts, call Big 3 Performance and order your own.
