make sure to get a vented hood. That will go a long way to helping the cooling and high speed grip. A lot of hot air is kept under the hood.

Looks like it's coming along nicely! Obviously needs some wider wheels/tires to fill in those ER fenders!

I have seen some pretty dumb things but this ranks right up there. what's the point making a track car if you don't understand the basics? geez...

Oh yeah by the way I'll be at Summit Point the 25th and 26th of September for an Audi club track weekend and I'll be at Mont Tremblant the following weekend, October 2nd and 3rd

People nearby should either come out and run or watch

why are the front wheels concave, but not the rear? Wider up front?
