Sure, I think most of it is covered here except the front splitter. It is 6mm alumalite and cut to just clear the suspension arms at full droop, and barely clear the tires. Then it is wired to 3 points on the chassis at the front, and bolted to rivnuts under the car. I also removed the headlights, some of the dash and 4 lbs of wiring since then. Which was somewhat wasted as I needed to add 23 lbs of ballast per their dyno.

Build Details: https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f3/...opment-455970/

For the class rules the car is built to 8-1 power to weight ratio, based off average power over top of the RPM range (I think top 1500 RPM, i forget) so it makes 268 peak 258 average WHP and weighs 2063 coming off the track with me in it. I get a .3 bonus to P2W for running tires under 282MM wide, and I lose .3 for being under 2200 lbs so it washes out.

Very nice run! Using the whole track, keeping the G-load at the outside of the circle, and really nice shifting. Glad our BWR gearset and other bits served you well, that's why we make 'em. Great job!

Not at all! Looking forward to SCCA getting a bigger TT presence so I have another group to run with.

Where did you get the wheel arches? The 225 a7 fit no prob in front? Any reason u didnít run a 15x10 rear? And how did the 275 fit?

Thanks!

I bought them used from the forums. I kinda think they are just miata arches though.

In the front I have trimmed the inside lip of the wheel well and especially away the back where the hinge plate meets you want to remove material. I also run lots of camber. But they don't touch at all now.

Rears fit with lots of room. I think they might even fit without the arch.

Can't run 10"wheel because Nasa measures the actual width of the tire now and it would be too wide. Also you haven't been able to buy a 15x10 all year!
