DEI trans tunnel insulation is the stuff you want. I did min yesterday based of the photos in this thread.

Here is another video from last weekend, this was the most fun session on a drying track on 205 Toyo R1R's, everyone was tiptoeing around trying to figure out how much grip the next corner would have.

Somehow I'm just noticing this thread just now. Loving this build and how much fun you're having with it. I also have to steal the design for that track trailer.

New shocks are on the car, put on fresh rear uprights and while doing that found some of the rear a arm bushings that need replacement, unfortunately they are on back order so i will not be able to get the aligment and corner weiging done next week.
the car rides nicer on full soft shock settings 900/500 springs than it did on hard-s shocks with 600/350

Yup, only Saturday though. Didn't want to pay for both days Incase wringing out the new setup went badly. Sounds like I may have to swing by over there on Sunday though if you'll be there.

Awesome. Sticking with the Novice group for this one but will probably bump up to Intermediate the next time.
