Hey Bud to answer your question the Hawk HPS in the blue box would be slightly more aggressive then the stock pads and the Hawk HP+ in the red box are very aggressive and noisy and tougher on rotors. My plan is to run Blues on the street and swap out to Reds for the road course.

Thanks Bud. The dragster is our first attempt at building a chassis from scratch and will feature a in house carbon fibre body with front and rear canards. Next winters project will have doors.

Jason says it works as advertised and beta testing is just about finished. Should have in my hands early Feburary, ARH has shipped the straight pipes. 2-step is really meant for a clutch car though.

The Oak Harbour Show is on the radar. Just have to wait a bit to see how the racing schedule works out for this year.

COOL keep me posted. I was asked to beta test, but had to say no due to the rainy northwest weather. :(

Making lots of progress and that Carbon Fiber really brings it together.

Can't wait to see it finished.
