I made the splitter out of carbon fiber from scratch. A lot of work as I had to build a plug and a mold.

Here is a pic of the carbon fiber dash and center switch panel. The microtech and boost controller are now within reach with the belts on. Also note the wide trans tunnel to clear the jerico race tranny and the relocated ABS by the front passenger area.

Nice.
Those rear flares are over the top.
I also cut my car off at the struts and reworked the front end. Http://www.rxracing.com
You coming to Indy for the 1km rear straight? Conroy is sponsored as a drifter this year, so he won't be there.

Sorry to hear about the misfortune. Glad you got it back on the road. The rear width is outrageous!

So....

What does it weigh?

What tires are up front to balance the 370 rears?

Stock ABS?

With 100 litres on board and no driver it still weighs 2777 lbs. A tank weighs about 190 lbs so the dry weight is about 2587. The next step is a tube frame chassis but that will be in a few years. I went with the s2000 abs until i can justify the bosch system.

The front tire is a 330 (12.5 inch) , rear 370 (14.5 inch). Mazda ran this width in their gto imsa car, and the imsa nissan zx ran a similar size .

How do you like the Michelins. Any feedback on how they compare to Hoosier's R6/A6, or Hoosier slicks?
