Default New from Louisville

Hey guys, new to the forum. Name is Scott and I am a mechanic for a shop called The Winning Formula in Louisville ky, and love to go to the racetrack. This is my street/track car that is full weight and has all accessories.

Welcome to the board! I have to say, the Kentucky jelly you guys make isn't very good on a sandwich... what the hell do you make that stuff from?

That's a really clean looking car. Please tell us about the modifications and give us a few more detailed pictures.

Looks good. When you say 'street driven' do you mean driven to and from the track, or do you actually drive it more than that? That splitter looks like it would last <10 minutes on the street at that ride height.

Thanks for all the comments guys, and yes I do drive the car on the street often, that is the only reason I didn't cage the car, because it is a street car..

Selling MS2 PNP and VVT controller because you are going to an MS3 with VVT control built in or are you doing something else?

Sounds impressive from the name I had a haltech stand alone on my Galant VR-4 back in the 90's It worked well, but had a crappy user interface back then... I assume they are more user friendly now.
