update.

Car is running well. I took first in FSP at the Packwood National Tour in a class of 7 (paxed 41 out of 269). However Omni wasnt there, so didnt have that benchmark to compare to. I also took FTD at a local event (first time in my own car) hosted by the Porche club.

A few event ago I ended up breaking one of my spacers. Fortunately the wheel stayed on. I found the dmg when I was changing tire at the end of the day. So, ebay.... u get what you pay for I guess.

I had my friend who is a machinest make me some custom spacers. I made the dimensions bigger compared to the ebay ones, so now it has twice the cross sectional area (twice as strong). It also meant that i made them thicker, 19mm, and they gained some weight (now 2lbs). And i can be certain on the alloy and heat treat of the metal. (6061 T6)

anyways, thats all i got for now.
