Yeah figured it's too cold now for people to want to go that early in the morning...I just got mine running again after pulling the engine out in January for the thrust bearing failure, sending it back to Arizona, getting it back in, having it fail again, getting it rebuilt by Gromm Racing in San Jose, and putting it back in. Missed the whole spring and summer...like one of my friends said, your lucky to be able to afford this hobby so quit whining.
Here's what she looks like painted Carmine RED:
Steve Yankovich gave up building his Mark III due to work, he is a VP at EBAY now and working 70 hours a week...so he shipped it to Stockton where a FFR builder is going to finish the rolling chassis and SRP is doing the body, I know he was not happy to do it this way.. but with young kids and the job, it was never going to get done.
Had mine professionally aligned this week at BTM Motorwerks in Campbell, he has done track setup on my M3 BMW for me and is really good. Ride height was set and car was corner weighted, handles much better now and feels planted to the road even with touring tires. Total cost was $650 for IRS car if anyone else is interested.
Still haven't installed the heater, that's about the last project I have, need to fabricate some fiberglass shrouds to duct the air and wire it up, all the mounting is done....one of those things after you get into it you wonder why I didn't just stay with the stock location...seemed like the right choice 2 years ago. Here's a pic of the mounting under the right fender;
The shroud I need to make mocked in cardboard:
Hose to driver side duct:
Driver side vent:
Looks like it is warming up, maybe a run up to Skyline on highway 9 is in order, still breaking the engine in. Hope to see you at breakfast after the Holidays...enjoy the time off!
