I got a little more work done tonight before I had to leave. I finished the power steering lines and mounted the hard motorsport mounting brackets. I will finish the install up when I come back tomorrow, that shouldnt take much time at all. The kit is really easy to install and definitely a necessity to anyone who plans on tracking their car. The hard motorsport backing plates are the best I have seen, covering the entire rotor.
Draining the fluid
Cleaned the power steering rack a little
New line installed
Brake ducts mounted (still need to tighten them down and line them up)

Ok so what all else is planned?
10-23-2012, 07:36 PM #305
Oil temp, water temp, oil pressure gauges
Long tube headers
Single 3" exhaust
New rear shock mounts
New ground control camber plates (current ones are kind of old)
Taking the heater core and EVAP out this weekend
Installing the EVO II track splitter this weekend
Lots more, but it will be next year probably. It's going to be a never ending project. I hope to start making all my own stuff to reduce the cost at some point.

Checking all the fluids again before the first session.
Had a whole lot of understeer this session. I guess that was the result of adding the massive hotchkis front swaybar.
Luckily, the guys from Autobahn South were there to work their magic on the car. Handled perfectly after some tweaking.
Decided to start out in the back and work my way up. That was a bad decision, because I ended up getting stuck behind 6-7 cars.
Finally getting to pass some of the cars
Looks like I really left the everyone behind in this picture.
And a video of the last session:
I feel like I spent 70% of the time stuck behind people and 30% of the time driving. Oh well, I still learned a whole lot from my instructor.

Just started taking the dash out. I'm going to move my switches to the center panel, remove the heater core, and clean up the wiring. Seems like its going to be a real pain to get all of it done though.
