I'm selling out my 13x7, 4" BS wheels, w/tires if anyone wants them - though I think the 3-4 of us are pretty well set up in that regard.

XHEAD's ex-Keizers w/24 run Hoosier 13x9.5 - R25B cantilever slicks
1 new center, 1 new barrel, includes lots of spare hardware, all of it is 1/2" hexhead Grade 8 + corrosion resistant coating.

Plus some Diamonds w/ 1/3-1/2 tread Hoosier Rains.

Moar work the car. I am still waiting for the "cheap" set of valves so I can take the "now" head to the maching shop with the "future/full-build" head to get them worked on at the same time. Also I've given up on AST, and worked something out with someone else about custom suspension dampers:

[EDIT:] Ok, more time now to post. I'm waiting on new bronze valve guides, 1mm oversize valves so I can take the head to a friend's machine shop. while I'm waiting for the man-in-brown to show up...

I've -
1) mocked up, measureed and now dropped the front lip off for some FG work
2) replaced the waterpump, T-stat, pulley's and lots of gaskets,
3) installed the Hinson bumpsteer pins,
4) did all the test fitting for the new wheels,
5) lowered the spring perches/re-did my struts,
6) covered all turn signal holes and sidemarker holes, etc,
7) vented the hood,
8) mocked up the new radiator position/mount,
9) gutted and vented the taillights
10) shortened the rear bumper by 3"
11) removed rear bumper brackets, the skin is only held on by Dzus fasteners.
12) test fit rubber t-handles for door handles/latches.
13) did some side-by-side-by-side-by-side weighing of MR2 suspension options
14) continued practicing with WinGeo using a CP car (yikes, 4.7" of scrub, front roll centers more than 4" above ground)
15) spent a gajillion hours in the new shop.

If you notice - my HL covers are welded to my fenders, otherwise I'd be all over it.
Are you going to be at the San Antonio divisional @ Retama next month?

Yup - a 4AGE freeze plug is a direct fit, just press - err hammer it in there. :p

I might volunteer to help with trash or something but I won?t be racing.

I noticed in your pics after I posted that you had already taken care of the head light cover problem.

Why are you corner weights so odd?

Those were from the V1.0 chassis, long since recycled.

Do you guys have any recent videos you are able to share? Very interested in seeing some updates.

I'm running an mod-prepped and trailered S/C MK1 in a local series in the Toronto area and have been lurking around here for some time. Sorry I haven't posted until now. My friend and co-driver have been taking many pointers from these threads and really appreciate the discussions and updates here. As soon as videos are posted from this past Saturdays event, I'll link one up here.

Here are some photos from Saturday.

We're obviously the red car. I missed FTD by 0.155s. It was a tight race as I was beat not only by one of the S2000's but the blue S/C Miata as well.

I'm drooling over that tire setup and the shortened rear bumper looks great! We picked up new Z214's in 225/45/15 this year and are very happy with the grip so far.

We don't have a build thread, but this year we installed a N/A transmission and replaced the engine and trunk lid with a one-piece aluminum cover. Not the cleanest piece, but it looks mean and resulted in a healthy weight reduction where it's most necessary.
