    This year I'm guessing under 150 which is the requirement for a chute. Since we're cutting up the car for the cage going to prep it for a parachute handle and.....a Tilton pedal box. Bye bye ABS.

    So you're essentially going for a drag car?

    Yep. Doing the pedal box and bias adjuster to get the brake bias dialed in correctly with the skinnies. For safety more than anything. ABS valve will remain in the car for now with the ports looped and electrically connected since I'm told the car will go into limp mode if unplugged. I'll play around with it later this year and see how the DME responds. Then remove it next year when I go standalone.

    Looking forward to watching it come together! Good luck.

    It's been a hot minute since an update. As we are doing the cage we decided to do a few other things as well (more info to come later) so that slowed progress a bit until we figured it out. Part of the cage tacked in. Missing door bars, sill bar, dash bar, harness bar, and window bar but those should be installed this week.


    For your viewing pleasure.

    Cage looks good to me.

    You're definitely getting to the serious stuff.
