    The car is out of the trailer! I haven't taken a good look at her yet, but she started up great and will be on jack stands tomorrow for a full look over.



    The hood needs some work to not buckle. I might put another hood pin in. There is tape on the spiltter from, some...uhh, team mate run off...

    Oh well. It happens.



    The GOD-AWEFUL exhaust that Bill Strong welded up. Lol. It will be redone and much better looking!



    I hope to not find anything detrimental on inspection. But I am sure i will find something. Then fix and work on my list followed by work on all the spare parts and creating spare corners.

    Took a good look at the car tonight. Overall, pretty pleased with everything. A few things I need to fix, but not too much.

    One of the broke axles hit the crap out of the Diff mount. Hard too see but it killed it. I can still use it though.



    The shock engineering held up. Sweet. I can change rear springs within 5 minutes. Too easy.



    Subframe moved slightly. Need to work on that.



    Front right coil over must not have been set when I dropped the car at some point.




    Small tire rub. Too easy.



    A few other things to work on (haven't decided if I am going to revert to sc300 manifolds to get the points back from headers). I think repainting the car will be the most difficult before NCM.

    New Paint?

    A minor list of post-race updates and fixes! That's a sign that you built the car correctly

    Yeah, he car looked horrible out there with all those colors. A new paint job is in order! Should be before NCM but we will see how everything goes. Thinking the Toyota Cement gray with blue accents.

    Great shots! The image is not level, but you are getting close to positive camber on the outside tire in the one picture mid-turn. But again, it may be deceiving given the picture being skewed for artistic purposes and not necessarily tuning purposes. That does look like so much fun and other cool cars out there with you!

    Looks normal to me. The outside tires are PLANTED.The cage is working: There is air on the inside tires.
    Tune the car as you see fit. I'm most impressed with the photos.

    I like that! But I already have a scheme in mind with a "sister car" (my buddies new SC300). Same scheme with different colors. We will see if it comes to fruition.
