We have slotted 2nd gen W126 brakes on there, 15" is required. Hopefully the car doesnt get the people choice award and I can buy the rims back.

looks like your guy will have to bring his own fuel

Fuel Sold On-Site: 100-octane minimum

can't wait to see the action. I just hope they don't destroy it mid race

Day 1 of the race is over. They are eating through the tires at a heavy pace, other than that the car has been doing great!!! There was a high of 19th position, they are currently in 25th do to a bumper lockup with some asshole trying to pass in the chicane. We hadnt had a chance to turn up the turbo so they are going to do that for tomorrow and well see how things run! Pics and vids to come.

[edit] I should add thats 25 out of 75 and 7.5 more hours of racing

With 30min to go and back in 19th (from a starting position of 32 this morning) in the race they lost the right rear axle, it literally fell out.

From the mouthes of babes, we were always taking them in the corner, including lapping an Impreza and keeping neck and neck with a spec Miata.

Next year we will be back with boosted turbo, IC and a changed drivetrain!
