$2006 Mr2


Here is the link to my Blog for the $2006 Challenge. I have yet to update it for the last month. As soon as I get back from the challenge I will add all the work that was done right up until the challenge as well as all the video and pictures we took while there. I am currently on the way home from the challenge.

We had a so so showing. We ended up 14th overall. It was a great time though. It was more than we had ever hoped for as far as having fun goes. If you haven't experienced this event you must go once in your life.

Next year will be better with a better finish. This year I ran out of time to do simple things like set the alignment and make a oil catch can both of which would have put us in the top ten. The alignment was so far off we could have picked up at least a second probably two with the car aligned properly. The oil catch can would have allowed me to make a couple more runs in the drag before being sidelined by large amounts of smoke coming out of the engine bay. Each time I ran I got faster. I think we could have hit the 12's with a couple more runs.

I need to give out a big thanks to DIYAutotune. The Megasquirt worked like a champ.

Hey man. Car looks nice. Where did you get your headlight conversion from, and do they light up the road well? Thanks

I made it. The whole front end is a one piece fiberglass front end that I made. I just shaped the headlight part out of foam and bondo when I made the mold. I used some lights out of a GM car. I don't remember what it was.

I used lexan for the headlight covers. I just cut them to the right shape and then heated them up in the oven to make them flexible to conform to the roght shape. I then used double sided tape to hold them in place.

The lights work fine but I need to adjust the aim a bit as they point a little high.
