New Front struts are here, but DOAH!

Mistakenly sent the height adjustment collars back with the bent struts.

Now have to wait for new collars to arrive. The camber plates will be here Thursday. It's gonna be tight to get it all back in for Sundays race.

Yep, already, post 2

Ordered the Ground-Control Camber plates from, go figure :

The (more than) slightly tweaked suspension is going back by UPS today. Hopefully the new fronts and camber plates will all be in by the next race on the 14th.

Results from the last race. First race with the new suspension and exhaust on semi-permanent loan from the very generous JW2, James Wilson.

While still a good ways behind him (2.8secs), to get to this close with just newly installed suspension, wheels, and an exhaust probably bodes well, as SportsCar magazine has picked John Hale to win the STU class at nationals. My car will actually be in STX class next year, and I was only a 10th behind an STX Civic that was the only car in that class this last race. Looking for good things and to put a bit of fear in the local STU guys.

Well, I had a long winded post about what this was all about, but the wonderful software that is Internet Explorer apparently also thought it was too long and killed most of the windows I had open on my machine. Bravo MSoft !
