Ended up finally getting the sunroof bolted in properly and sealed


Windows are all done, they just slide in and out of the door. I'll put them in depending on rain and for transportation.


And I got some Delrin clutch and brake bushings to free up the pedal slop. Along with the Rogue Engineering steering quick release. I got it to bring the steering wheel a little closer to me but now its way to close! Going to play around with the seat but it might be up for sale soon.

Kurt was generous enough to let me take the M3 out today to Mosport for the Ferrari Club School so we could see if there was any other major issues lurking within the car. Two small issues found were a soft brake pedal once the car warmed up for a few laps (maybe fluid?) and the lack of a battery vent tube had some acid streaks appear in the trunk. Nothing to worry about though as most of it washed away.

On some well used and abused RA1s, the car clocked an easily attainable 1.35 at Mosport GP track, with no proper wheel alignment, sketch brake pedal, shocks not even properly adjusted, and being only two track days old... I think it was a huge success! Nothing leaks, everything stayed on the car... I would be lying if I didn't say I had fun this afternoon toying with a few faster instructors driving some fancier newer machinery. What is interesting is I haven't even heard the car from outside yet, but it supposedly is loud enough to be heard all the way around Mosport.

Hopefully we can get a quick video clip within a week or so...







Had to throw a pic of the ol' Gleb in here lol

I was at Mosport on Friday. I was driving the 'slow', cosmos e36 M3 (first time at a track). I took a look at your car while it was parked... I still can't believe that it's a spray can paint job, it looks great. Also, the other most notable feature of your car is the sound it makes as its on the track...it sounds loud but awsome! Nice job.

A couple days ago Rudy decided to redo my exhaust. The back of the exhaust looks pretty awesome now.

Here are the exhaust pipes mocked up before welding the tips on.




Here is how it turned out. We also put on safety chain in "just in case" the worst were to happen.




I think it looks great!



I also put some tow hooks on the rear shocks since it was on the hoist.
