I hope to aspire to your level someday.  That is a very impressive mod list and the results show.

Thanks!  Megan's not too fond of that list, or should I say, the expenditures it represents.  I keep telling her it's cars or women, her choice...she doens't believe I'll give up the cars though.

guh! it says: "Thgir Peek Ciffart Rewols"

I'm not really sure what that means - some dude named Thgir is peeking at something...

:lol:

anyway - awesome ride Ian, very impressive work.

Thgir was a Norse god famous for tricking women to walk up stairs so he could peek up their dresses.  "Ciffart rewols" is Norweigian for "Hot Damn!"

 :lol:

Thanks for the compliments!!

Yeeehaaa!!!  The suspension is finally done, all the kinks worked out, and it's feeling nimble!!  I can't wait for this weekend's autocross.

Now for the brakes, a carbon fiber hood, and a racing seat...then I'm done.

Well, that's what I'm telling Megan, anyways.  I will always be looking for ways to be faster, and things always grenade.  And I think I will do the back brakes at some point, maybe a steering wheel, audi TT steering rack...then I'll be done, for sure  :lol:

Got the Centerlines sold and the Works are about 5 weeks out.  Also, just switched from the Avon Tech-Rs to Hoosier A6s.  The Hoosiers are stickier cold than the Avons were warm 8O

Can't wait for this weekend's event!! :woohoo:  8)

Perhaps I should have gone with something a little more common, like silver?  ;)

With thanks to Erik (bluefox280), I added a pic from DATR.  It's been further "stickerfied" as I've picked up another sponsor (SCR Performance) and added Hoosier contingency stickers.  I should have pics from the SCCA National Tour soon...

Yeah, but his green machine would kick the poop out of our 337's.  He may not win many beauty pageants, but I give respect when it is deserved.

Looking good Ian.   :)
