    Nothing we do here gets on the front page of BS, so why would they get a national view? point is, they have lots of choices - when I was doing the brake challenge, I matted the throttle - enjoyed the amazing sound a BBC makes at 7000 rpm, did my launch and remembered why, exactly, I built the car. They don't like it? F*** em

    Don't tell the powers that be at Optima. Not one picture of my car on the track, autocross, or brake challenge... seems they're not as thorough as they think they are.

    it arrived

    and put the old wing back on

    did an oil change

    oil looked okay and the spark plugs showed a touch rich and that I might be able to add a degree of timing... but at this point, it's safe so since I'm changing the entire fuel and spark system next.... I'll leave it for now.
    I'm pretty close to doing the port EFI swap. Need a few parts, order them tomorrow.

    Very fine line between risk and safety. As I learned in LSR; "Be safe, go fast and have fun" !

    Do us proud brother !!!

    stickies on

    rain on

    reload

    I'd be faster in the dry with the 200tw tires, but these give me a better chance on staying on the track when it rains...only time will tell if it was a good move.
