Ah, the bonnet hitches in the front.
That is a pity, as though it makes it easier to raise it on the rear it also means there is nothing to catch it in a collision, so that easy raise would be quite dangerous unless you weld in a heavy slot beam or such.

Any chance for a longer gear ratio? How high does it rev in top gear at highway speed?
That 2.3 engine should have enough torque to power it under 1500 RPM at 100 kmph.
