Thank you. The headlights are Evo-R's, and believe it or not, the lights weren't on in that picture, it's just the reflection of the flash.

Snails for the new kit came in yesterday:

This is no. 1 (a little bit too much bling-show-effect) ;-)






You can call this the after-image, it already as everything new - I mean EVERYTHING, starting off with a brand new engine sitting there (now has ~3.000km on it).

This is no. 2 - specced up for track use - and you don't have to ask for engine bay pics (still work in progress)

Finally installed my rear diffuser. Painted it gray so it would stick out on the black car.

My new Gunmetal NRG 3.0 quick release. Much better than the spline one I had before and 0 play. The fake paddle shift look is easy to grab, but a little tacky.

i think the new rules are great, but leniency should also be exercised
we're all here to have a good time talking and seeing each other's cars
