What you can't really see well from that angle is how we had to cut away some of the supplied fins on the bottom of the diff cover to allow the exhaust to get by.

Saw the car at Barber Motorsports Park yesterday. Looked great, qualified 1st and pulled away from the field from the green flag.
Needs a louder exhaust though, so quiet compared to the other cars on track.

Thanks, glad you could catch the show Ralph put on. Sorry about the lack of sound - maybe we'll get a new, lighter exhaust next season.



After some wins at Barber, we ran up to Michigan to get our new home away from home. An aluminum stacker trailer from Nash Car Trailers.

Hehe, those wheels are a little fancy for my taste, but overall the trailer has been really great. Here it was at Infineon

I'll see if I can link more interior pics (I don't see anything on the properties), but the interior gallery is below. The aluminum lift is a work of art.

Once we get it all laid out the way we want it, I'll take some, but we won't be in travel for a race mode for a few months. We got it just in time for the end of the season.

I haven't seen it - I'll have to see if I can go find a copy. We intend to go to the O'fest race at Mid-Ohio in Sept.

HPF's would be a good option

For 2012, we'll be switching over the new Maxxis RC-1 R-compound tires. We're looking for good things from this new tire.

When Maxxis tells me more about how to get them, I'll pass it along. I believe their plan is to have people go directly to their web site.
