Ground Control Coilovers

Today, the Ground Control coilovers I ordered arrived. I'm starting with 500# front and 600# spring rates. I already have Bilstein Sport shocks, which I plan to send for re-valving as soon as they give in. The 28mm Neuspeed rear sway bar will stay at the full stiff setting, however, I plan on playing with it next event.

The AGB short ratio transmission also arrived, it should give me higher acceleration and a higher top speed at the main straight of TWS. I also have couple of small projects, like oil temperature and pressure gauges, vacuum gauge, door panels, floor panel for the driver side and hood pins.

Rollcage Update

Lucas Racing & Restoration is doing a great job. The cage is pretty much done, just waiting for Greg's magic to weld the joints. There is still the bar behind the seats to be welded, he is waiting to mount the seat before installing the bar. I should have the car back in a couple of weeks, and get ready for October's event with the Driver's Edge.

Here are pictures of the update:
