GD hood struts on a gc8! Next week Im going to skin the underside of the hood and install some areocatch hood pins. Looking to loose another 10 to 20 pounds off the front.

Autox has been fun I got my first 1st place finish last saturday.

Over the winter I plan to make the car nicer to drive and faster.

Suspension-
Trade someone my 24mm fsb for a 27mm, I need to control the oversteer.

Lighter-
carbon fiber hood
racing seats
lexan windows
gutted doors
go to gym more

Power-
rebuild turbo
new tune

tires-
new v710's to replace hoosier r6's

Thats about it I hope to have a shot at winning my class next year.

Still need to put the trim back on, should look close to stock when Im done. I also have not started the door windows, they will be tricky. Im thinking about building a frame and maybe putting sliders in.

Weight came in at 2420 with a little over half of a tank of gas. That would be 2400 with race tires and wheels. 1490 front, 910 rear. So about 62/38 front rear. Not the best. With a little ballast 60/40 would be easy.
