I delivered beer and stole a door hinge from the parts wagon. Glad to see the project turned out so well.

Finally got around to making a bezel for the shift boot. Looks great as long as you don't examine it too closely.
Lots of things since the crapwagon was finished. Slightly unmotivated to post a million image hotlinks. Maybe soon.

I saw your "For Sale" thread and immediately checked here to see what was up.

10/10 Did not disappoint

This actually answers one of the questions I had about these, with shortened trailing arms, would there be enough adjustment to set proper pinion angle?

It seems we have our answer.

There is a hair. if you need to make them shorter, you can just use shims instead of the large lock nut.

Thanks for the hospitality, I really like your car. Next year I will be ready for the strip, and we can grudge match

Hopefully I'll have more time away from family so that you can drive it. Good weekend!

It's a magnetic phone mount with a built in qi charger. Makes for way less exposed wiring when I have the phone out.

Another quick update. Went to the races after IPD, along with Simon, the Twins, and Gary. Fastest run was a 13.8@100.4. Was fighting boost control issues all night where I lost boost after torque peak (down to gate pressure) and would only see it recover to target pressure by redline, effectively killing off 1500 RPM of power band. Still, got into triple digits, which is nice considering it was done with less boost than last year.



And a video that Carl took:
