New parts came in!



Got the bearing and hub pressed in- now I just need to find the right socket for the axle nut:





Soon she'll be back on all four!

The cage looks great. We have to
redo the roll hoop back stays because they terminate on the rear strut brace (have to take that out otherwise we take a penalty).

Just placed a big order of OEM parts from Arek, and we already picked up our seat, wheel, and transponder from Perry Performance. Should be a fun build!

Awesome!


Finally finished up the race car and got it out of the garage - needed to make room for the chump car + parts cars that we're stripping.

New parts are so shiny and pretty:

Good stuff. Don't forget to stake the hub nut once you torque it!

Hopefully! Remember I was talking to you about tire choices for chump recently? Well, I sort of got adopted full-time by that team and am now in charge of building their car! There are a couple things I would have done differently had it been my own car, but I am just making the best out of it with the budget I have to work with I made a thread the other day in the track section!
