[QUOTE=FrankB;1231230]So, the color match on the car is not great in the sun light. I believe this is mostly do to sun fade on factory panels. The spots under the factory spoiler are much closer to the color of the hood.

How much did you score the spare aluminum hood for? I thought Singular had little gurney flap like risers on the leading edge?

$120 with a spoilerless OEM deck lid too. So, when the time comes to add that extra down force I'll have a deck lid to swap out for the track too. Oh, and the louvers do come with the gurney flaps but they're just not on in the pictures.

Hey Frank, love the build. I have a MSM with a MS2E, what made you decide to move over to MS3?

Time restraints as I needed to either send mine back for an update to add sequential ignition or upgrade. The MS3 was ready to ship and Dimitris is slammed this time of year.

Hard Dog door bars came in yesterday and I couldn't wait to install them. So, I did it last night.

Yeah... I know

My newest setup: I made a intake box behind the driver's side headlight.







I also got a new Duracon shift **** off Ebay for $20. My old shift **** used to get super hot in the sun.. This thing is AWESOME, it doesn't get nearly as hot as my old one!



Here's my best lap from my last NASA Event at NOLA. I tried a session at 19psi with was awsome in the long straight but I was on and off the gas a lot more... I ended up lowering the boost to 10psi and pulled off a 2:04.88. The SM lap record is 1:59.XX

I think I could have gotten I little bit faster of a lap time but coming out of T-16 I hit traffic and it ended up being the checkered flag so I let up a little bit because I knew the Mustang wasn't going to let me pass coming into the the cool down lap. I managed to take 3 seconds off my time from my last event though so I'm making progress!



Video to follow if it ever gets done uploading to YouTube...

On a side note.. It looks like I'll be spending my next three years in Mayport, FL rather than Norfolk, VA as I originally thought. Yay for no snow!!

I also installed a fire extinguisher right before the event. After watching a few videos of track days gone wrong, it gave me a little piece of mind.



Some pictures from the paddock

Jacksonville will be much better than Norfolk. Norfolk was a shithole (2yrs).

How soon are you moving? We run the road course at Daytona in November with NASA.

I'll be moving in November but I have a school in route so depending on the dates of the school I might be able to make it.
