Hello All,

just some pics of the car, coming together , thought taken way too long.
hoping for the first dyno pull in next 10 days.

Boy, you took my comment about the rear arms to heart huh? lol

Awesome work man. Saw your post in that other thread the other day but forgot to track down your build thread. Photobucket pulled their head out of their ass btw, and you can add your new photos there now and post them inline here now if you like. I think you didn't get much reaction here because of the unassuming link and no direct images. So much to comment on!

big delay due to software issue with Aim data logger and PRO EFI ECU, temperature offsets creating havoc and engine wont run properly, awaiting update from AIM, been 2 months now,
as always thanks to a wonderful update to software creating all these issue when all was fine before, live and learn I guess.

got is figured out, the AIm was expecting temps in F, and then converts to C, however the ECU was sending temps in C. thus the AIM was taking C temps and converting to C temps.
took the coversion instruction line out of the code, and now all is good.
finally now Iam soo close to being done

Wow, this thing is amazing. I would love to pour over it in person one day, maybe you'll bring it to a SIV. So how do you feel about actually racing it now? You have so much time and money into engineering every aspect of this car, are you going to be ok with taking it wheel to wheel racing now? lol I don't think I could do it.

Your sheet metal fabrication is awesome, those brake vents are beautiful.

So did you go with the e throttle or are you running the plate inside your TB to delete the drive by wire? Curious if the PRO EFI ECU supports it and actually handles it well. I don't like the idea of drive by wire, but I love how many external devices they were able to toss out by adapting this TB design.

You could easily sell those rear A arms. What hub did you go with, looks like you tossed all of the stock components entirely.

FYI, if you get a pair of the RA64 RCAs from T3, they will stack with the ones you already have. The chintzy 35mm T3 offers out of the box barely accounts for anyones drop. Looks like you have tons of room from the bottom of the balljoint to the wheel so you could easily stack RCAs to fully correct your drop, eliminate bump steer, and more importantly, fix your control arm roll center. I assume you are dropped further then 1.5 inches, which is all the single T3 RCAs account for. You could get away with a lot less static camber and have better braking performance if you got your control arms to actually generate negative camber as your front susp compresses. Of course you get 70mm correction with 2 RCAs stacked, but one set could be milled down to get whatever amount of drop you actually have. I'm in the same boat currently but I'm wheel diameter limited so I have to get creative to solve that problem.

yes Iam going wheel to wheel racing, its the only way. I know the first dent and Ill cry, but then it ok. funny is I have yet to crash.
in all my years never had a close call.
as to the car, overdoing it is my middle name. Its a problem I have, never can do anything just ok, always over doing it.
whether my boat, car trailer etc
The hub is from a nissan sentra, front wheel drive, they are always over engineered to Torque steer etc.
I have a height limit in SCCA.
additionally wheel size is also limited

Wow that is a really nice splitter setup! love the brake vents.

What year is the car? You've got early bumper, late flares.

Link to the vid isn't working btw.

Holy crap, its finally done! It looks amazing! Can't wait to hear how it goes and such.

16 inch race rubber supply is nice, no real reason to go bigger if you are width limited and your wheels already clear your brakes.
