Wax, was installing the dcc fairly straightforward? Looking into getting one.

Also, if the truck is fixed tomorrow, body work on the 240 should commence. Pictures to come

i realize that but it just seems like you could find something that didn't look as horrid and still performed, but i suppose its a track car so it doesn't matter what the **** it looks like.

the thing about autocross is that the speeds are [relatively] slow. so, to have any sort of beneficial downforce, it's going to require add on's that are extreme compared to a normal road race car. wings are generally at a much more aggressive angle and most of the time have multiple tiers.


google some formula SAE cars and you'll see how extravagant they can get.

Bingo! We are budget racers. We actually took two ebay aluminum wings and created one adjustable dual element wign out of it. Looks mean nothing, performance means everything.

Video is up. I am first with what I would call a bad run, but it's apparently my fastest run of a 57.2 The car owner is second and it's his fastest run of a 56.9 but he hit the last slalom cone so it didn't count.

This week has just been an awesome deal finder for me!

Yesterday found 8 lq9 coils for $50! Going for over double that on ebay+shipping.


Today a guy posted this up on mr2oc, bought it in under 15 minutes for $300 lol. New are around $525~. Now to decide what color to paint it.
