I must say, that wing is fantastic, and I hate big wings. That thing is all business and no Pep Boys like the GTS wing.

Thanks everybody - a lot of work, that we were too busy to post at the time, went into getting that car to its debut, but we'll post more features of the build as we progress thru the year in trying to optimize the car
Here are some on track galleries out there:

Now that we've had a chance to put the car on the track and see how it affected the car, we're probably going to take an inch or two off each end.

You want to be able to make the car handle neutral with some room for adjustment. With a wing that large, it will be hard to get rid of understeer.

Here are some pro shots from the first race weekend

We were able to finish the car and get it to its first track weekend. Now begins the never ending job of refining/tweaking the car and trying to make it faster.

New pads for those StopTech GT-4 Calipers are over an inch thick

My brother and I attended the event at Chuckwalla and saw this beast first hand....and it is awesome. We were really pleased to see one of the club racers take on an E9X build, they are pretty rare at the moment.

We spent Friday at the LA Chapter track school at Cal Speedway and after Ralph did some laps, we had a special guest driver for a few laps - Boris Said!

He was at the school raising awareness for his new BMW dealership in Murrietta. He also had some good feedback/suggestions for us regarding the car setup.
