I'm sure that's cheaper. I'll have to check availability.

Over the next few months we hope to help Dan out with a few proto parts too. We will make some posts in the vendor announcement section as the parts become available. MSI wishes all competitors the very best for the 2010 season.

There are a couple of fixes.

1. Run a regular GPS module and use that antenna that can be mounted externally.

2. Wait for them to add the GPS antenna to the SmartyCam. They've talked a lot about it so I am pretty sure it will happen. Just a matter of when.

3. Mount the SmartyCam on the outside of the car. There was a prototype for an aero mount over the camera last Nov/Dec. Again not sure on timeframe.
Yeah my first thought was about running an external GPS antenna so hopefully they make one. I'll ask AIM about it.

So that works for undercoating as well as the interior sound deadening? To be honest I'm not sure how they got off the nasty interior stuff but couldn't get off the wheel well junk.

I'd definitely like to do a couple NE events, been meaning to drive at NJMP.

Thanks, no chop top or anything crazy like that

That would be cool, but way too much work Can't spend the whole budget at the body shop!

Thanks again for your support Mark, I'm already impressed with what you have available and I can't wait to see what you come up with in the future!

About time you got this started slacker

It's a good thing you got the bare chassis as I really didn't want to rip off the deadening off the firewall again

I actually had the pleasure of doing that again, only this time there was no heater core or anything in the way so it was a whole lot easier The car actually had a fair amount of stuff in it, 2 of us spent about 3 hours removing all the junk, useless brackets/trim pieces, leaves, dead hookers, etc. from the car before we took it over to the media blaster.

This definitely seems like an 'all out' race car build this go round. Is this going to be for TTS/ST-2 as well?

Yes that will be the main focus. It will also be legal for NASA's ES enduro class. I'd like the car to be eligible for SCCA STO but a lot of compromises would have to be made and I'm not sure it would be competitive against former WCGT cars.

That wheel well junk is 100% worse than the interior sound deadening tar sheets. Crimped wire wheel on an angle grinder takes about an hour a wheel well. It will be very clean at the end of an hour, you can use brake cleaner to get rid of the leftover streaks.

Dan, if it was soda blasted that would explain why they couldn't get through the wheel well stuff. It's rubberized. They should have broken out the media for that section.

Thanks, I'll give that a try first.

It was blasted with garnet, which is more abrasive than soda. I guess not strong enough though

The wheel well stuff isn't tar or the sound deadening sheets, it's body sealer they troweled onto the car at the factory. I agree, dry ice won't touch it. I used a heavy wire brush on a drill to pull that stuff off.

we use a wire paint stripping brush (it has hooks on the ends) to remove this. After we have removed the majority, we have a guy come by that blast dry ice on everything. ALL GONE!

Thanks, I think I have pretty much all of the OEM parts I'm going to use but I'll let you know if I come across anything I forgot.

Are you talking about an attachment for an angle grinder or something hand held?

^^^

Will one of those attachments work on a regular angle grinder, or do you need one of those ~$500 CrudBusters ?

Yep, got pretty much everything out of the old chassis now that can be reused, now it's just sitting there looking sad

Is there something we need to know about Rick, JJ, and the IAG crew?

Oh, and while I'm here, just wanted to express how excited we are to be a part of Dan's new project. We are looking forward to getting this beast together and on the track!
