I don't race at all so I may be WAY off base here, but were you having a hard time controlling the car? Seems like a lot of large steering inputs( @1:14-1:18 for example) :shrug:

Congrats on your placing and looking forward to a Subie win next year!

not a giant fan of bugeyes, but......holy crap that thing is sexy and evil looking. Like one of those girls you know is cold, mean, heartless, B****, but you just have to try and get with her.

Well done with the scheme.

I love the oil cooler setup. I might have to borrow that idea for my time attack car.

with 550 hp, and off camber/bumpy turns like that, i'd expect lots of steering input, both with the wheel and the pedal

sweet car, love the intake box and oil cooler setup behind the headlights

Is abs required for this class? I see the pump was updated and moved to the strut tower for room, why not just remove all of it?

good catch they dont have a rule. Brake proportion valve is built into it, we have a tilton valve sitting at the shop, but we decided to keep it as oem as possible.

ABS is disabled though
