Here’s my slow seat time car for doing HPDE events and Time Attack. Mind you I DO NOT daily drive this car I may drive it every now and than to work but that's maybe a handful of times a year. It has basic suspension and engine mods, not looking to make any real power just a reliable weekend warrior. Its definitely a 20 footer car, looks good from 20 feet but anything up close you can see alot of dings, dents and overall wear and tare on this car. The car has been through hell and back and now is going through hell again. waiting to blow up the motor to do a swap. all mods were done by me.

It`s a total bummer that you guys still have the dreaded smog test and new rules are no aftermarket air intakes ... Hopefully you have your original equipment and can reinstall it to get your sticker and then put your cold air back on...I just heard on the radio that the cops are pulling over tuner cars to make sure they have mufflers... Mine ends at the resonator so I hope I don`t get busted.
I am old to @whtrabit so from one old fart to another I need to tell you to find the time and follow your dream . Not sure what SCCA Solo event would be but ... DO IT...
While we are speaking I need to correct you on your tire size ...You say you went up 1" in tire size and see 1mph at 90 .. Really ..the opposite is true.... look at this chart .. With old age I guess your mind is playing tricks on you .... Let`s call it a brain fart ... Tire Size Comparison
I owe you an apology sir.. I completely missed 1" in width... My brain fart not yours .. Please forgive me
These guys have aftermarket wings ....

I just weighed myself, and I am 140lbs also standing at 5.4... Just wondering if I can assume my car would be the same weight ???
I also like that hood... If it was an add-on, I would do the two rectangles without the center and paint them the same colour as my car.
Can you remember which kit you used for the hood vents... There are so many to choose from.?
Looks like you're having fun and that's what it's all about… Good luck at the track:D
