thx everyone, dropped the car off at car crafters collision today in albuquerque NM. Jim Guthrie owns the shop and currently drives for the formula drift circuit. couldnt have asked for a better shop to align the car and setup the suspension for autocross and road course's. Picking it up tomorrow night after my conference.

What an amazing ride!!! I didnt think you could ad more carbon to your whip than you already had before. Car is sweet as all hell, I cant believe you were here in the 505 and I missed it (Car Crafters is less than 5 miles from my house). Congrats on one Bad Ass Unique ride!!!

By spec your alignment is good. What I need to know next is how you plan to drive your rolling work of art.

That is the easy part, bring it to me Heath, Jimmy and I will handle the set up. Before you head out I'll need a detailed lists of all your suspension mods. I have a vague idea on how to get a 5th Gen road course ready

Sorry I missed you guys in ABQ, I had to get back to texas for the charity car show our camaro club was putting on. I do appreciate all the hospitality I was shown while I was there.

appreciate the compliments from everyone and pete we need to set up a date for you to take a look at my car.

I had back surgery yesterday so I am down for the count for a little while. The car will be going to Henderson Performance for a few more upgrades soon

Hmm you could have a loose ground somewhere. Whatever you do though don't close the trunk.


I'd hook her up to a battery tender and then start checking circuits.
