We now almost have a fully sorted car. We have changed our front brakes to a 6 piston Raybestos calipers with PFC 47 compound brake pads. New PFC pads in the rear as well. We are installing a 3:50 rear which will give us a top speed at 7800 RPM of 179 MPH. We are also having our Mid-Valley 4 speed regeared for road course with much closer ratios. All in all we are very happy with this car and hope to find 1:15 lap times without traffic. We have established a neutral chassis set up and we will focus on driving, braking and tire pressure for the first half of the season. We will also be testing using a 1 3/8 restrictor plate to see how much it affects the performance so we may run GT-1 instead of SPO. Our engine is 6.5 L (393 ci)and the max is 6.0L
