Ya I will be out pissing off the wine and cheese crowd. Getting in trouble for passing under braking and in corners. Stupid that the Friday open day and Saturday advanced is treated like the lowest level of HPDEs. I've instructed with enough groups that have no rules for advanced and it's a lot safer. You don't have trains and faster traffic getting frustrated.

Hey now, just because I am fat doesn't give you the right to call me fat.
I'll just have to settle for waiting till you aren't looking, jumping in the drivers seat, and making race car noises.

If you wear pants bigger than 32x32 you wont even fit in the drivers seat and/or your legs fit.

I feel your pain Jeff. My Buddy Club seats are the same. 32 waist to get your *** into the seats and you better have no lats or shoulder width if you want to be comfy for >1 hour.(I ain't Asian!)

Evil Genius Racing also makes seat support brackets. Cheaper, but made of steel and painted. You can probably try giving them a call to get them faster.

Steel is to heavy. I have a line on a i/o for $99 but the guy couldn't make it to NASA. I was a man and ran 3 times with out it. Lot of movement but I got the data I needed to do the next steps for suspensions stuffs.

I would highly recommend you fix that before your next track outing. Your belts will not do their work if something happens. Stay safe out there, you never know!
And the car looks great and super fun!
