Just got a chance to see your pictures, Chris. Amazing job so far! The car looks really good. Sorry you won't make the drivers school. We want you to stay safe at the convention so, "Let the Force be with you"; "Live Long and Prosper"; "Klaatu Barada Nikto", and anything else that might help.

:o)

The car is a "roller" now.

Still have to put the engine in and finish routing all the wiring and hosing. Still parts I need to get like axles and good outer CV's. Currently using a bent steering shaft just so I can "steer" the car into better position in the garage. Will throw on the good shocks when get the final stages. Looks like I might need to replace some of the sphericals on them, and one of the shocks is significantly slower than the others. Recommend sending it for a rebuild or just live with it for now?

Having Pedals in the car would be a good thing too.....but I feel so close I can taste it!

I want to apologize for the lack of updates.....I thought it be nice to share the news though.

The car is finished and competed in its first race last weekend at Blackhawk Farms!

FrankenSpec did an amazing job! Only ran into one issue all weekend, and that was just the brake bias clevas attachment to the master cylinder. That issue happened on the last session of the test day and was easily fixed. No other issues were encountered over the weekend, except moisture. I sat out sunday's race due to not having a set of rain tires.

The car was just fantastic. I was right around my times from over a year ago. Not bad for something built by myself I had to keep remind myself. I also had to keep telling myself it was a shakedown weekend and had to play it smart.

I want to thank you all for the help and support with this endeavor! Enjoy some pics!
