Thanks. Almost done. A few more big items to complete it. Still have a list.

All glass is being removed
Upgrade rear brakes, bias valve
Light weight fly wheel
Racing Clutch
3.91 Differential
Carbon Fiber Trunk, Hood.

Goal is to get it as close to 2800 lbs. dry as possible. Its 3340 with me in it and half a tank. And I'm 210.

So BR, did you have a good time? Looks like we hit a little traffic first day, oh wait, then we advanced you to the next run group because you were ready. No traffic. At all. Good driving, look forward to seeing you next year.

Keep all four on the pavement.

Glad this thread spurred a lot of good conversation.

I agree that the CCA instruction is top notch. I don't know Steve Sr and Jr, but Biscuits and I are friends and I'm typically parked with him and a few others.

I was back at Lightning this past weekend and it was awesome. I didn't have the GoPro charged, but I had a great weekend. I was moved into intermediate and got to run solo for the second day (which really meant I got to take a few other instructor friends out for more input and coaching).

I'll be back at NJMP once more for Jeffapalooza and I'll be sure the GoPro is charged. Stay tuned

Woah I have been slacking on this thread! You're entirely right about the traffic (lack of). This event through the NJ CCA chapter was run like a well-oiled machine. I had one hell of a great weekend (err, Sunday/Monday).

My goal for next year is to work on not getting passed by mister dmw16 quite so much (Of course, he has stickier tires! Just sayin!)
