Just a few days left before I head to Vegas, figured I'd drop this here. It's from the SCCA CAM invitational this past August.



Prep has been pretty subdued. I replaced the Strange C-Clip eliminators. They'd worn in and I had some slop in the axles that resulted in annoying knockback in the rear brakes. That's fixed. It goes to a pro for detailing and paint correction Tuesday, then the sticker package goes on. Thursday we'll load it on the trailer and saran-wrap the car, and Friday we head out.

Keep tabs on Instagram @andrewdscott12. I'll be using that for initial posts since it cross-posts to Facebook and Twitter for me.

OK... I'm following along on Instagram, and went back to review your blog-posts (very thorough :cool:)
Good luck with everything, and hope you have some fun.

I do want to agree and disagree with the quote on the blog (I can have an opinion, right?)
"I'm doing stuff with a car that wasn't supposed to be doing this stuff "
While I'm 100% in agreement that a GN was not supposed to the track weapon that you have built...
it was intended as the 80s automotive performance equivalent of a "Shock and Awe" campaign.
Great stuff.

[just to clarify...] ^^^ which is EXACTLY what you are doing now :cool::eek:
(sorry, I can't figure out how to edit a post?)
Great stuff.
