Glad there was no real damage! You were very lucky to have it happen in corner 14, inside wheel and slow! A corner or two later and the roll cage might have been put to the test!!!

Hope to see you back on track soon.

Thanks Diogo!

I may come by and grab an axle from you just to roll the car around later this fall... I'll keep you posted!

I've made the tough decision that I'm done racing for this season. With the house on the go, the budget just isn't there, which sucks, but it's for the best. This winter I'll regroup, do some maintenance, and get the car nice and reliable (hopefully!) for next year!

Not much progress to report!

I moved into my new place Nov 1st and was busy before/since getting little stuff done around there. Finally got the garage insulated (just in time!) and now the race car is tucked away for the winter!

Plans this winter are:

House stuff
chump car build
fix race car (if the money is there)

Sounds good- after Christmas for sure

Heater is getting installed next week, hopefully. Going to build some work benches this weekend probably and start getting some tools organized.

Long time since the last update, but not much to report! Been working on organizing the garage so that I'd have good tool storage and workspace. So far I'm extremely happy with how it has worked out:

Workbench #1 - 32"x76" & heater:



workbench #2 - 24" x 96":



workbench #3 - 16" x 78" (for bench-mount tools only):

Well today I finally got some stuff done!

After getting her high in the air, I pulled the exhaust, rear swaybar, rear trailing arm, axle, diff, control arm, and brakes to get a good idea of exactly what the extent of the damage was from losing the wheel last summer.

All in all, no surprises. Will need:

-axle
-wheel bearing
-brake caliper
-brake pads
-rotors

FINALLY ordered the parts - they should all be coming in this week.

Need to get this car out of the garage to make room for our chumpcar build!

Yeah the house put a damper on last season, but it was worth it. I was still able to get out a few times in the 8-Legs racing BMWs, so that was good!

This season my plan is to run 3-4 races in chumpcar, and then maybe 1 or 2 lapping days with my racecar. Trying to keep the costs down
