Thanks man. When you've put so much time and effort into something it's always nice to get a virtual high five.

The short answer: my own stupidity. I wasn't checking the oil in between runs like I should have, and with it being a fresh rebuild it was consuming more oil than I expected...guessing the rings weren't fully seated yet. It developed a rod knock at the end of the second day, and there was barely any oil on the dipstick when I pulled it.
I haven't signed up for anything yet, but might run the MVP event close to the end of the year. How about you?
I know man - I'm long overdue for a trip to Barber!
I'd be happy to pick out a super gay paint color for you if you want to make your car more memorable
I am doing the august 2-3 NASA event. I would run with MVP, but I have already spent all my track money for the year. no more events :/ I definitely wish I had pushed more events out to october/november since its cooler.
Wow, how the hell has two years passed without me updating this thread.
Car is still great; did a Road Atlanta event back in October and then AMP in the spring. I ran a 1:44 @ Road Atlanta; didn't even bother with the lap timer at AMP since I've been stuck at 1:33 for a few years now.
Here's a video from RA:
Lately, though, I've been focusing all of my efforts on my new build:
It runs the same lap times at AMP as my turbo car...but without a turbo
