Buy Richard's 11.75 kit!

The consensus around here is that your MC is fine BTW, they're hard to blow. Even with leaks and 250k, Laz's MC lasted a few years of tracking before being replaced simply for the leaks. Proper pads and bleeding are important!

Eh, might be harder than you think. There is pretty much no det to speak of, and since the 1.fail makes no torque the rods will likely hold up to high power, so basically what I'm saying is wire your wg shut and let's find out

I'll be working as a software engineer at Tektronix.

<br />If I wasn't going to be trying to sell this 1.6 setup eventually that could be fun.

How is that possible? You already have your 1.8 block...

The older I get, the more radical my #becauseracecars get.

Maybe I'm a dumbass or truly warped, but I dig stupid, uncomfortable ****.

At 28, I'm already pretty fed up with "because race car"... to a degree. I'm even valving my dirt bikes softer these days. Am I a bitch?

I'll be trying those too. The consensus seems to be that the NACA ones flow a stupid amount of air. And the pop out ones flow an ok amount of air.

I'm Ok with Ok. Elimination of the AC core and the addition of the Eclipse vents made a pretty dramatic increase in airflow, much more than I was expecting. The pop out ones have been in a bin in my garage for [redacted] years now
