So, lots of finalizing going on.

Corner weighted to 50% (and 52.4% front)
Car is now 2240lbs no driver and 3/4 gas.

New alignment with 3.25* front camber and 2.6* rear.

First day with the new setup will be this weekend. Still waiting on brake pads for the new 11.75 setup, so I will probably run the 11" stuff still.
Got a new GoPro Hero3 Black Edition setup with stereo microphone, so the footage should be nice.

Also, car is getting it's new tan early next week!

Preparing for this weekend:
- GoPro Hero3 Black setup + external stereo mic with windscreens.
- Revert to OEM rear brakes due to missing BBK parts :(

That looks really good. I'm looking forward to hearing the external mic setup.

Is this now the most heroic turbo track car on Trubo dot net?

I'm curious to see how that front wing setup works. You don't think those cross braces will add a lot of unnecessary drag do you?

Front WING?! there is no front wing on this car, you posted in the wrong thread.

Thanks, but I doubt it. I'm definitely not making the most power, but there is 4 years of development in this car, so I would think it makes a top 5 notation.

You kind of lead by default...

Hustler = NA all the way!
Charlie91 = vultured
Theseus = museum relic

Who else am I missing that is running a pretty serious turbo setup on-track?

Oh! ThePass. He might be the most heroic because he still drives to events.

What about the other guy in Europe that runs a GT35 or something? I think he mostly does low key track day stuff, and his car might not be super developed, but he's making a lot of whp and running on the track.

I can't think of his name...and I'm too lazy right now to look it up...

No, does that guy post on here? I was thinking of people on this forum.

I meant HF-mx5t

like dis ----> https://www.miataturbo.net/build-thr...eet-toy-38472/

He hasn't updated his thread in over a year, last post it seems he needed a new chra.

It seems like his car gets used hard, at least it used to.

Didn't make it to the track day last weekend due to some preparation issue, such as the BBK. But finally, the 11.75" radial BBK mounted. This is the adapted MINI Cooper setup.

I also came across a nice turbo brace, and I think I might use this idea for my AbsurdFlow setup.

Last, the car is loosing it's green colour, which is being replaced by matte orange.
