Probably a slave going out. Happens a lot. Cheap and easy to fix.

Also Monk, you package spilled the other day. This **** is now everywhere. I found it in my car the other day. Little penises everywhere.

Finished my last final this morning and went home to cut and weld stuff. This back brace came out way prettier and I got all the holes right. Instead of grinding the inside of the tube I just used a flap disc and took a layer off on the outside of the inner tube.

Also got some sweet stickers from revlimiter.

And new turn signals

Threw some spray paint on. And no way in hell they are sliding haha. Some day I will throw the inner bar on a lathe and take a couple thou off. Then powder coat. But for now seats are not adjustable.

Yeah, I took great pains to fabricate 3 positions for my driver's seat. Set it to the middle position after I finished the build last year and have never changed it.

Sean has a legitimate use for adjustable braces (2 drivers). And he fabbed the pieces for me. My only position is the one that I fit. Theres no other way I'll fit.

yes mine get used after every session at every track day. like i said, it was a lot of work to get them right, but mine slide very good with just a little graphite.

just noticed the "most disease" sticker lmao

Getting damn close to being ready for track season. I should have taken on more stuff, I still have another 2 months. But a good friend of mine just got a Miata so I'll be putting in time on that to get it up and running.

Update to the list:

To-Do:

0. FIND OIL LEAK/BURN (So far so good.)
1. Inconel studs (RX-7 ordered, still need resbond but I think I am going to run without resbond for now because its a biatch to find)
2. Exhaust bracing. (Ordered a 3 inch exhaust clamp)
3. Locking downpipe bolts (Arrived)
4. Seats + Harness
4. Back braces (DIY)
5. Install new springs (550 Front, 350 rear)
6. Oil+water temp guages. (Going with a VEI systems gauge) Ordered and installed
7. Helmet (Going to continue to run my open face helmet and wait for sa-2015)
8. Hardtop (Got one)
9. Put beads on intercooler pipes (Probably DIY: DIY $5 charge pipe bead roller - D-series.org, unless someone local knows somewhere to get it done cheap)
10. Find coolant leak. (risky to put this here but so far I haven't lost any coolant)
11. Find diff leak.
12. Heat Shielding. (master cylinder, brake lines)
13. Tune.
14. Manifold relief cuts
15. Setup oil cooler
∞. Break stuff
