I was about to be like "Just use one of the phenomenal photos at the beginning of your build thread!" but I see that you've just done that. Looks great!
I've been hanging out with the folks on the thread dedicated to this issue and it people have had the nut sheer in half. It's not just an issue of it coming loose, and we've all seen the abuse my cars get so I have to be more cautious. My car has spent probably 6 seconds at redline since I've moved here, so I'm pretty proud of that.
