The car is back at Vision.

Fix a few oil leaks on some oil lines, PS lines, and brake lines.

Install rear sway bar and cockpit adjusters.

Install windshield

Widen body, wrap, paint.

Then it's off to the track.

First event is scheduled for the end of Jan 2014.

Vision needs to get it on!

Congrats Tony. I haven't been on Rennlist all that much in the past year and spent the last hour catching up on your build. Some fantastic engineering and fabrication. Wish you weren't so far away - would love to see the car in person.

Btw - I had a chance to race in a chump car race at Laguna earlier this month in a 944 S2. What a fantastic track but the notice restrictions are insane.

Update.... The car is still at Vision. Trying to get the body work hustled out.....

In the mean time... just got these!

Who can guess why these are so important?

Hint> Look very close and you'll see they are not OEM

Yes it's an ABS ring. But why is this abs ring so important is the question....?

Random guess on why its so important.... The crazy standalone Bosch Motorsport ABS system needs those?

Now this is a good question as neither the Bosch Motorsport or the BMW / Teves MK60 motorsport systems require a special ring?

I think that Tony is going to add a chain drive KERS system.
