Any modifications to the Turbo in the near future:  Hahaha… This car is a constant modification.  On the list in the near future… updating the tune, PDK tranny modification, differential upgrade, custom wide body, the list goes on! (FYI: BBI Autosports Project Grip is not Eric’s Car. Some could call them siblings with their common looks).

Are you more of a cool calm & collected driver or would you consider yourself a petal to the metal fast & furious type: I would say I’m in between.  I do like to drive fast but under the right circumstances.

What was your most recent ticket for: … Speeding, of course.
