I guess it is time to start a build thread about this car even though it it pretty much done as I feel no car is ever really done in this sport.

Rob,
Did I understand that this car will be at SpeedWeek this year?
If so, I will look forward to seeing the fine craftsmanship.

Regards,

Yes, Lord willing, we will be at Bonneville.
The purpose of starting this thread is threefold for us.
1) share our adventure (hopefully forum members will come visit our pit at the salt so we can put names with faces)
2) maybe other forum members can help us be SCTA  compliant.
3) safety- anything that develops because of our discussion here that helps prevent a high speed blow over and subsequent destruction of the car would be a good thing.

Btw, thanks Neil!

Looking at the rule book, I do not see that I can use a spoiler with side plates in Modified Sports class. Is this correct?

      2012 rulebook allows spoilers per 4.CC.8 (page 45-46) in Modified Sports (5.D.4, page 71). And with that engine, you're gonna need one! I'd go Design One.     vic

 Ditto... and weight on rear wheels. Spoiler will add downforce but hard to figure with out knowing pressure difference above
and below spoiler. A2 wind tunnel?

  Hope to meet you cheers

I'm asking the above question because I was hoping to simply weld uprights (3/4" tall) to the existing window retainers that are not in line with the roof rails when the car was originally built.

Never figured out what was up with the boost controller. Still had enough hp to run 250 on the back up run.
Thanks to all the officials, big Tim the tech inspector, Lee Kennedy and the rest of the SCTA-BNI crew. These events do not put themselves on.
Being close to the crew that puts on the "Flashlight Drags", I understand this is a monumental task.

Don't call Jim. Lee Kennedy is now your man.
