Turns out there was some confussion when my motor was assembled. Instead of the solid cometic HG in there they put an oem one. At 450 whp I am suprised it lasted as long as it did. Anyways I'll get a cometics in there and bring down the power, it's very unnecessary.

I haven't updated in a while, but the car has been running well for the most part. Here is a Video from the last GT race at Calabogie. I had to start at the back of the pack since they didn't get a qualifying time for me. Made for a fun race, but unfortunately ran out of gas just before the end so I couldn't finish. Managed to run my quickest time (so far) a 2:18.1 On long track!




Mirror falls down at 16:35, After that, it's pretty boring, I slowed it right down to try and save gas.

Great job dude, car really turned out cool! Where did you secure your splitter? The front edge to the bumper obviously (edit: ..or is it?) but what about the back?

Thanks dudes! Yea the front of the splitter is bolted to the bumper and the rear slides up onto a small bracket attached to the subframe.

Hey Chris! The car looked good on Sunday. It turns out that I've never met you and I confused you for Shaun! haha

Why did you end up leaving early? Was the parking lot too terrible?

Ah yea ok makes sense haha. Good to see you out there though! Yup, way too rough. The bracket that holds the splitter was hitting the ground, and with the oil pan sitting not much higher, I didn't want to risk it.
