Yeah.. it's pretty. One of the reasons I went to Cali to buy this car. Didn't want a rusty POS Canadian car.

You like that? Tis how I roll...

Actually, got a smoking price on the Panasports and then needed to run a small spacer for them to clear the brakes.

Car handles great though. A bit oversteery at first with just the spacer in the front so I added 5mm in the back and it made a huge difference.

This is the car that holds the SP record. I matched him at 1:15.4 yesterday. He has been running at this track for 20+ years.

Quick question... Just noticed your Rotrex was reclocked downward? Obviously my AC/PS needs to go, is this just a matter of removing the bolts on and rotating the housing to taste? IC is in my future, reclocking would open up far more options.

Love the build, clean and well thought out is the way to go. I only hope my ADD mod mess is 1/2 as reliable.

Exactly. However it's a tight fit, and the silicone would be very close to the header if it was just on the tip of the stock compressor housing. I bought a 90* cast elbow and had my fab guy make an extension pointing forwards. And then I wrapped the compressor housing exit in gold heat reflective tape, wrapped my header with DEI heat wrap AND put a TDR heat shield over that.

I don't have sex, I like the fact that I don't have to worry about STDs.

BTW, 300who and 200ft.lbs above 6k means you're well on your way to popping that 5-speed.

I glued a tennis ball under my accelerator pedal, and I like the fact that I don't have to worry about an unexpected discharge of menses.

Yeah, I was wondering about clearance to the exhaust, good to know its really that simple.

Yeah I know...

I'm keeping my eye out for one. I'd like to add some 6UL to my wheel collection for higher speed tracks. With my 4.1FD w/ a 6pd and 15's with NT01's would that act pretty similar to my 4.1FD w/ 5sp and 13's? Or should I try to get a 3.9? A 3.6 is too low for me I think given the tracks I run and the torque I have...

.... this picture was during my quickest lap of the day. Think maybe not wanting to let the Ultima pass had something to do with it? Mmmmhmmm
Oh, and I'm kinda kicking it out in the corner too... not on purpose. So time to be had there as well... Damn I can't wait to see what it's going to be like when I have aero.

That Ultima has a built LS7 in it.

Nice!

Another awesome build, and one of the few SC cars I like.

I think it's pretty slick that you are running wilwood's under a 13" wheel. Niice.
