One or two of our runs came to grief however as we both had instances of instananeuos oversteer in some of the faster sections, resulting in a few spins and multiple cone penalties between us. Still, the other competitors suffered similar fates and we came out on top again.

Many people were getting caught out by the transition from grippy gravel to slippery mud-snot.

You and Scott were entertaining to watch, for sure. It looked like one of the more controlled cars out there, while also covering ground quickly.

Thanks Pete. You should have seen it from inside grinning smiley

It's a borrowed aluminium Trailex mke. That's really all I know about it.

I just found out the car produced the fastest time of the day at the RallyCross this past weekend. Scott was driving not me but it's still very gratifying; it was faster than all the heavily modified Subarus and other well developed cars.

As the car was still on the trailer Tuesday morning we decided to drop it off at [URL="[url]http://www.thompsonracingfabrication.com/"[/url];]Thompson Racing Fabrication[/URL] to get some "Porsche Protection" installed. That's skid plates and oil cooler system shields in English.




Their almost completed rally Lancer in the background is amazing.




Despite spending $10 of my life savings and the best part of an hour of my life at the local power wash the underside still looked like this when we got it on the hoist.




Still, it's a lot cleaner then the floor of the power wash bay I used. Wont be invited back there again.

Stuff keeps showing for the car. Wish I had time to install it all. Yesterday pedals, foot rest and a throttle pedal lifter from Pelican.




Today some rubber floor mats. I was going to get racing red but bottled out and got safe grey instead.




I'll post pictures of Ryan's handywork when we get the car back next week.

Have a great weekend.

I can't wait to see the harness bar he is creating.

Picked the car from Ryan Thompson today and found this gorgeous custom harness bar in the back. Better and cheaper than Sparco. Perhaps you should get one.







and the MOMO steering wheel hub arrived.

We took the car up to the Sno*Drift rally in Lewiston, Michigan this past weekend. Well, my friend Ray did. I drove the van. It was the cars first long distance run so we were a little apprehensive but we needn't have been. The car performed flawlessley and was a big hit.

thanks for fix. looks fantastic. are you worried about the holes in the oil cooler plate filling with mud, and reducing air flow?

Thanks.

I'm a little concerned but ot as much as I am about rocks hitting it. The first time out mud coated the oil cooler and the temperature nosed up so you kind of can't win.

I think if you had the oil cooler safely wrapped in a Ziploc in your tow vehicle, it would have been covered in mud.
