Pretty close. I'm 5'9 with a 31" inseam. The wheel is a little deceptive with the deep Daikei hub and quick release, probably 2-3" closer than stock.

Ok, thanks. I'm test fitting the Sparco Circuit and Sparco Circuit Plus (2009 models I assume) next week. The Circuit (VTR) is probably too small. The Plus will be fine I assume and either will fit in the car. The Pro is also available still - the one you have - but is slightly bulkier and has a ticket cushion. We'll see.

When we met up at Big-Willow I gave him a couple pointers and suddenly he's a cocky ************ getting tons of bitches. You should probably take notes.

The base on, the Sport. Couldn't justify double the money for the Pro. It's a lot lighter, but it's strapped to your shoulders so the weight means nothing.

I thought we were behind, and then I saw that MER's 25hr of Thunderhill car is still a bare, unpainted tub... Then I felt a little better about our situation.

I would donate to the Savington fastback fund. Wouldn't that give you a serious edge on straightaway acceleration?

I would of course expect a little bit (maybe 8 in^2) of advertising space, free to use however I please.
