My new go fast mod!!

Just kidding but they are pretty cool! I may have saved 5-10lb. per side. And because I dont need lights I sold the OEM headlights and buying these was a wash! Next up are Carbon Fiber brake ducts!

They have LED light bars that are lighter and do a much better job of lighting up the place! Plus I will try to go fast during the daytime and then graduate to some endurance/night time races. One step at a time. I am actually having second thougths about the 25 hrs of Thunderhill. I am not sure if I want to beat on the car so much that I have to rebuild the engine, trans, diff, MSC triples, all the suspension bushes, etc....... It might be cheaper to just buy a seat on another team.

okay makes sense. second part sounds like a good idea. spent all this time building dont want to do over so quickly. still would like to be involved once you get things going with this and help out if you need.

Give me some time! Geez, what do you think I am made of money

I do have a Carbon Fiber Delage airbox now and would go ahead with the BimmerWorld airbox if I could get a good amount for it. Then the head light blank.....

I think I would have to drive. That would leave 3 paying seats.........

I might even consider joining forces with an existing team to run two cars.
