Various racing sanctions, depending on what you plan to run, unless you just do open track days or none at all.

I know for sure those won't fly for Rally down here. Or NASA probably, SCCA either.

sorry, thought you were talking about on the street lol.

Yes there is no issue here in our Time Attack series. And the cage builder does these door bars for many of the Stage rally cars he has done. SO they have passed tech and inspection within higher levels of racing than just TA. I am also not worried about racing under NASA or SCCA rules.

The door bar pics are not very good, but from what I can see they look ok for NASA, SCCA, ICSCC in the US.

A better pic will tell us more later.

Great looking car Funk32!

Main concern for a passenger would be more surface area to spread the load of an impact.

^ Looking Beautiful Dave... As usual. Who did the Headlight deletes for you? Do my eyes deceive me, or did you decide to ditch the Wasp setup and go with an APR Widebody? The Fuel Safe / Radium tank, is that the 20Gal or 15? That cage is gorgeous. Every time I see that set of Alcon's I fall in love. What's your impression of the MSI Front Subframe with the 15+ STI Rack?

Peace

Hey Tod,

thanks for the compliments! Headlights were done by a man I found online they are ok not the best quality and may need some work to fit properly. I was using the ABW flares before and yes I am moving to the APR widebody as it is a cleaner look, this year the rear panels will just be bolted in as I am running out of time. When I have time lol I will have them properly molded into the body work.

I will probably run the wasp splitter this year as again I am running out of time and money LOL to get something bigger (wasp splitter now matches the width of the APR bumper). I wont go further out that the last one 5" past the body work.

The fuel cell is 10 gal lol GO time attack

The MSI Frame can handle the new 15 racks without issue. I am still running my Qrack until it dies since it is a rare one (9.1:1).

I have more updates over on IWSTI as no one really seemed to care about my build thread over here lol and I don't want to make this thread all about my car either. But I have slowed down on the updates due to lack of interest overall.

But sadly i think forum builds are dying with all the other social media outlets.

Anyway does anyone else have new stuff for this thread? I plan on showing a weight difference between 2 items shortly. Just want to take some nice pics and get the proper weights.

Maybe you are correct re: "other social media". I tend to think about it as there are more "decorators" than "drivers". Some of the cars that I see are borderline "Jeepney's". Yours is form and function.

Great now that I KNOW I can drop 47lbs from wires I need to rip out the harness and get to removing what's no longer used. Lol

New harness looks great!

Haha having a PDM helps a lot. No more fuses and relays.

I am also missing some of the other oem stuff like fuel pump controller, and some other little bits. But its close enough lol.

Haha it was not weighed. I did my best to keep it very similar. Like the dash and wheel not being weighed. But the logger was as i didn't feel like unbolting it from the mounting plate lol

LOL ^^^ I am like that too. I will spend all kinds of time on one project but when it comes to tear-down I just cut and pull till the garbage I want removed hits the floor.

That oem harness is 100% functional. No cutting lol. Just looks like a mess since it was in and out of a box a few times.
