For those that might give a crap here is everything I took. iPhone and real camera combined. Tried to just get pics of the newer stuff and cars I can only dream of. I'd have to say it was awesome to be there without the crowds.
Nice Pics man. Way better than mine!

LOL, no one took a picture of Tanner Foust. Insert "The Price is Right" fail sound here.

What a great opportunity though, I would love to visit a car show without the massive crowds around everything. Some nice pictures.

Did the "TrackSTer" succeed in its goal to double the engine output of the stock ST engine??

From what we were told, it's not done yet, and by looking at the engine bay, it definitely isn't done yet, so we'll all have to wait and see how it turns out.

Edit, straight from the guys at fifteen52 in a thread on FocalJet:

We worked with Mountune on a conservative engine build that would add over 100-whp but still retain close to factory spool characteristics. Simply put, big FWD power is hard enough to maximize on a road course, and adding lots of turbo lag would not only lessen the fun, but the car would also likely be slower.

So under the hood we've got forged rods and pistons for the sake of extreme-use durability, uprated cooling and fueling, and a brilliant new Garrett GTX2863RS turbo :)

I have a picture of you chatting with Tanner, want me to post it? Nice guy to talk with imo, both him and Ken were both very approachable.
