Thought I'd post up a couple more pics of 'brushing' it up for the World of Wheels that came through a couple weeks ago. Did it for the man who painted the car - won best in class, but was an easy win as there was no competition The video I made REALLY captivated the crowds. Thought it was a little scary when people actually take pics WITH the car, just not of the car... anyway, car shows are not really my thing - that's a CR thing - and I'm not turning CR on you guys!! Note the tire are NOT shiny - just clean... Just tryin to drum up some business for Mike.

Anyway - starting with the prop valve - realized I never posted up a pic of it -

Here's a pic of the fire system in - will get closer pics of where the nozzles were placed. Since I have to still carry passengers at times, this is the only place I could fit it in - other than in the trunk.

We had to have a display - here was mine: Was looping some track video with the other 'promo' video I made on the previous page. If anything, I guided about 20 guys how to get into tracking their rides - I shoulda been a paid promoter for Nasa, Chin, PBOC and the others...

That's easy enough, they're still sitting in a box. I don't dare install them for fear of upsetting my brake bias.

Damn. Does your paint and body make you hold back when you're on the track?

Wow! I though it would be difficult to get the car looking any better, but I love the new flames.

Guard rail damage = Street cred

Only time I hold back is when it's wet on track... the paint is his billboard, doesn't stop me from beating the hell out of it - it just makes me look good when doing it!

Thanks guys -
I'll be to VIR someday - not sure if it's in the plans this year, but someday. You can see it then!

In the meanwhile, with 20mm spacers, the 11.75" kit from Trackspeed has no clearance issues with all my rims. The 6UL had almost 1/2" clearance, the K1 Kosie was more like 7/16" and the cheap Drag rims I have was the tightest, maybe 3/8. I can't wait to try them out next weekend at RA. Also, brake pad changes will be a 10 sec swap now!

11.75" compared to the oem 1.8L front rotor:

shoving a 3/8" drive extension to show how much clearance there is - remember, I've got 20mm spacers:
