Pay no mind to the the rice-aphobes. Your car is a very smart build. I love the "race" on the back. It speaks to what your car is built for and the other mods back it up. Congrats on COTW!

I admire Beauwulf, I wish i had the time and money to be racing all the time =D

Beauwulf, do you have a link or thread that shows all of your suspension mods? I would like to take a look and see what your setup is like =p I was hoping for Pedders Xa coils and their swaybar kit soon. =D
Most people don't realize that the current V6 will spank many cars within its class. And on a road course or HDPE event the most powerful cars don't always win. It has to be a balance. As a V8 owner I am a big fan of the OP's car and props to him for actually run his car and not his mouth

Thank you (and everyone else) for the kind comments! I really can't wait to try it out! I'm first on the waiting list for the Chin Motorsports HPDE at Homestead this weekend.

When I do get it on the track, I will have plenty of video you guys!

GOOD LUCK........Keep the rubber side firmly planted on the track and drive the hell out of her and make us V6 guys proud.

Looking forward to the video.

Thanks

My inspiration! Same artist did the one on my signature photo. I do love the look!

That rear diffuser is definitely on my list. And, maybe one day, the wide body kit! That would be sweet!

The biggest thing with that is how much money did they have to put into the four banger to beat the V8? Its stock to stock that matters, cause any amount of money u put into your car, if the opponent puts the same amount into there car that was faster already as stock, then your probably not going to beat it.

So many honda's going i can beat your V8 Camaro. All i say is how much did you spend to beat me? Its most of the time more then what i paid, or its just a matter of time to see how long the car holds up. Stock my car is built to be fast, when you start getting into modding your car, i think you start shortening the life of it. Just like some people with diesel trucks, yeah they can beat me but in 5 years lets see, or just see how much money they have had to do in repairs. The reason our cars are Limited to 155 is that from the factory they say any faster and we are not sure that all the parts on your car will hold up.
