Damn Californians and your December track days, we'd probably need spiked tires for a track day here in the PNW.

Yeah but if it's like those motorcyles that do spiked tire ice racing that would be cool!

Looks damn good man.

One issue I see (and you probably already know this) is its quite a bit far away from the engine. Won't it hit/interfere with the frame of the car? The rail is right there, making all bottom mounts have to be placed REAL close to the engine block to not hit the rail.

Actually it has room on the frame, I hugged it right to the block Ill get some pics up soon, it takes up all the space available between the engine and the frame, getting the spacing right was a pain I have to re make my runners 3 times but it fits well now.

Is there enough room to allow for at least a little engine movement?
