You might expect rock-hard bushings, la racecar. You'd be wrong. "People come to us and say they want a race car. I always ask, 'Do you have fillings in your teeth? If you do, you won't after driving a race car.' Race tracks aren't like the street where you have to go over speed bumps and potholes." For that reason, John and Jason stayed with rubber bushings so the car would be smooth for its intended street use. With Quicksilver, G-Force Design Concepts has built one sweet restomod ride.
