Ouch is an understatement; looks like the stock front bumper is barely scratched. I can't imagine what would happen if I hit the wall with my flimsy 'glass front end.

New front end looks good; the carbon fiber and wood floated film paint effects on the wheelie bars are hilarious! Although in real life I've seen some "redneck engineering" at the track that was almost as funny. Scary, but funny.
