This is an instructors only run, so we give the nicety of a point by.

No, this was a road car, so it had to be taken down to near nothing and built up.

Nice build!
Wasn't me, sorry.

MCS Suspension with GC parts. No mush here.

Thanks Bill. See you soon.

Drake, have you built many cages in your past? Since I didn't build it, and it was professionally done, passed tech with NASA and BMW, I'm not sure what you mean by Jenky? The bars are actually angled with a modified Nascar door bar for ease of entrance and exit in case of fire. There is no structure issue and the foot well is re-enforced. I've had the car looked at by the likes of Pheonix Motorsports, VAC, etc and all love the work. Perhaps you just need to see it close up.

BMW and SCCA. BMW will run in GP but I have to add weight as I've cut a little too much. Car has to be at 3750 dry to stay in class.

Camber caster plates from GC + Ride height. I don't always run -4, more in the realm of 2.5-2.8 depending on track. The splitter and wing provide enough downforce to prevent under/oversteer.

Keep the comments coming folks, I truly do appreciate it.
