I think I'm doing pretty good just getting it to the track let alone FTD despite the small turnout.

The vids are gonna be dark. Especially the second one.... It was at night.

Looks good. Impressive you got the car back on the road so soon.. I'm guessing the chassis wasn't tweaked? What color are you going to paint it? Mariner ftw.

I really want to get out to some of these events, but it will most likely be next year before that happens.

Thanks! The exhaust is fucked, that's what was banging around in the second video. But all the damage was behind the rear subframe, and I hated waiting around to get started so I just dug in. The car is being painted mariner, I threw some color coats and a clear coat on over the weekend. Doesn't look bad for $50 worth of paint.


Let me know if you make it out to one, I'll show you around the track.

When i finally make it out to an event, ill be sure to introduce myself. Only thing keeping me back nowdays is my setup finally pissed me off to the point where i pulled all the bandaids, and have ordered the MSPNP. Tuning is the next adventure, and hopefully i didnt **** my motor with that shitty bandaid setup. Time will tell.

At least motors for our cars are cheap, esp. the 1.6.
