    Panhard bar almost done! Just need to finish welding chassis side mount in, tighten the bar and center the axle.

    The Panhard Bar looks great!

    Did you build your own? Looks similar to a Griggs Racing setup, but different. Either way looks pretty sweet! Congrarts

    So things got crazy busy in the last month before the Lemons race. I didn't post any progress pics or info so here is an update. We finished next to last with 25 total laps. We did however start with -86 laps so in reality we did 111 total laps. I breezed through tech with almost no problems. Car was overheating Friday practice and Saturday in the redonkulus heat. We only turned 30 laps all day on Saturday. Put a new radiator, water pump and thermostat in Saturday. Then we did intake gaskets as we where leaking water into the 4 intake ports closest to the water passages. Got it together and working all day Sunday but it is WAAY down on power. Like non turbo Mk2 golf pulling away hard in the straights down and the T-5 doesn't want to downshift nicely into 3rd . So I've got more work ahead of me in those departments.

    The good news is that the brakes and handling really surprised me. Handling was not at all twitchy and very predictable at the limit. Brakes where amazing for what most would call a hodge podge system. Stock 4 lug '87-'93 front rotors, modified SVO calipers, GM metric rear calipers with turbo coupe rotors, SVO master with an adjustable prop valve. I ran Hawk blues up front and never changed the Autozone cheapos in the rears with Motul RBF 600 fluid. Had little to no fade, and could outbrake everyone!

    Well anyway here are a couple of pics. I will post more when I get them from the driver who brought the good camera!
