Here are a few pics from last weekends racing.. You'll notice the car now has alloy headlamp covers (saves 3.5 Kgs) and lexan windows..

your car looks like its winking. Looks sick though, how much weight did the lexan windows save?
The weight saving wasn't all in the lexan but I got it down to by over 100 lbs, down to 2162 lbs..

Can't get the photos any bigger without buying them.. That will take a while...

Had a very poor race, came 9th out of 26 as the new tyres I tried out were way too hard.. I was quite upset at the time after the front pair costing nearly $750...

Wasn;t much of a weekend really.. Got some new front tyres that turned out to be hopeless... Am out again this weekend so am hoping to go a bit better...

Speaking of crap tyres, went digging through some vids from earlier in this year and came across this vid where I was trying to massage a set of dodgy slicks into life with and as you'll see very unsatisfying results...

hey piers. a few questions. on that one picture you linked, why do you have tape on the headlights? is it coz if it breaks it doesnt get glass everywhere? and how much wear on your suspension parts do you get from all this track stuff? any upgraded parts or oem replacements?
