What's Happening Right Now...

The car is currently shut down undergoing the biggest part of the build. We are prepping to meet NASA ST/TT3 specs for 2020 but also adding a few more goodies to keep some options open. Highlights of what is currently going in:

-Full Cage
-limitedslip.de Drexler LSD w/3.62 FD
-Full Interior Strip
-Motorsport24 Electric Power Steering Kit
-Nine Lives Racing 71” Big Wang
-Super Secret Highly Custom Front Aero (a.k.a. not exactly sure what going to do here yet…)
-Signature Wheel SV502 - 18”x10.5”
-Fuel Cell
-Lifeline Zero 360 Fire Suppression System
-Racing Shields Lexan Windows
-Airjax Air Jack System
-Chillout Systems Quantam Cooler
-Karbonius Race Intake
-Mfactory CF Driveshaft

There are so many other things to do that I will update once the build is wrapping up. Complete interior & exterior revamp, improved cooling, weight distribution just to name a few.

I do want to give huge thanks to the guys at M-Technik in San Antonio. Not only have they done all the work on the car but they have also been completely awesome in guidance and support on the track as well. Just an all around great group of guys that I didn’t know this time last year but now I’m proud to call my friends.

Good people, good cars, good times – just doesn’t get any better than this

Hope to see you out at COTA again this year!

I see you chose the Drexler LSD. What made you go with that one?

Great parts list.

Johnny from NineLives is a good friend. Should have my wing on next week. He modeled off my car.

On the diff. 3.62 and research or backup to how you are gonna run it with the DCT? Rev Match etc?

Does the car allow you to code in the final ratio so it knows how to rev match?

Appreciate it guys. This car has been just an absolute blast to drive on the track. Going to try to catch some better pics moving forward - definitely been lacking here.

Well hello to you too and thanks! Probably going to break your heart on the color though - I'm about 99.999% its not going to stay grey. Something different for me too - my boldness in exterior color is usually limited to which shade of grey to pick this time.

Shooting to make it out there in November having had some decent seat time first with everything new going in right now. Really would like to get out there in October with EA if possible.

I've *set* a personal goal of 2:25 in TT3 trim at COTA. Not sure how realistic it is but we're going to get at it pretty hard. Current trim best of 2:30.75 on 295 R7's so we'll see what happens.

I am going there with Chin in a couple of weeks. My almost 70 year old father made it through the wait list to do his first ever track event there. I picked up an '18 M2 that I'll run around a bit in. He's going to terrorize the novice group in a bright orange ZR1. Ought to be a riot but its going to be stupid hot out there.

The differential choice has been driven through discussion with driftflo. Going back & forth with Florian this was the setup we settled on. He has had success with this setup (including the 3.62's) so hopefully we can replicate that here. DCT coding to be handled by his guy. Going to be awhile before get to test it out but will definitely update when I can. Really excited to see how this in particular plays out.

I think it was one of your posts that I came across it actually. Going through data for different wings their numbers definitely stood out. Hopefully that holds true on this platform. Looking forward to hearing your impressions after you have a chance to run it a bit. Thank you for your service to the wing community

Is that the Chin after dark one? I'm really thinking of doing it. I was looking at Schnell fest on Friday and the Hallett event today but got burned when a girl flaked out on me.

The night ones are edge addicts - they have one in July and August. Trying for the August one but not sure I’m going to be able to swing it. Chin is June 22/23 - standard hpde. Bummer missing out on those two, Hallett in particular looks pretty fun.

This in one form or another is what I have heard when talking to anybody about it. That and its a shame I wasn't tracking when TWS was open are the two most common things I hear about tracks in our "area". I'm assuming I'll get out there during the NASA event next year, just would be nice if it wasn't 10hr away.

Nice build! You won’t be disappointed with the diff from Florian. I got the Drexler with a 4.10 for my manual race car from him - it’s incredible and a massive improvement from the stock unit.

Thanks! Really been looking forward to seeing the difference it makes - my expectations have been along those lines. Good to hear it shouldn't disappoint!
