Seems like everyone else is doing a 2010 thread, so we figured we would as well.
Many of you are familiar with our car from last year.
The car was very successful last year and allowed us to win the Redline Time Attack AWD Street Class title as well as 1st in class and 4th overall at the One Lap of America. For this year we are going to build upon the success of the setup by refining the aero, building a new engine to make more power, increasing the safety and fixing the mess (more on this).
One of the events we did last year was the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Some of you may have seen this picture that was featured in a Japanese magazine which has become the focus for our ad campaign for this year.
A day later and into the race and we suffered a fire that took out half the engine wiring harness and caused all kinds of other issues. The race was a great learning experience for us and will prove to make the car even faster and more reliable going forward.
Couple pics of the damage. Basically, everything in the top right corner of the engine bay was toasted. We got lucky that there wasn't more damage to surrounding components.
Nice hot spot on the hood.
Fire damage seen from the inside!
