Here was my fastest run at 41.5xx. It's crazy to see how much the rear axle moves laterally from this view. I see a Watts link in the near future!

Overall, it was a very fun course though. And as always, thanks David for the awesome pics!

My fastest clean run. thanks for the awesome pictures David and catching me popping a cone in the air at the finish.

Ethan its crazy how much the rear end moves in the sn95 chassis. Maximum motorsports torque arm and panhard-bar fixes it all,  was my plan for my old '00 mustang before plans changed and I bought my '14.

Shane, I've been researching a lot on the 3-link rear setup and I love what MM has to offer. I'm also in contact with another suspension company that is going to start production of their version of a 3-link setup so I'll be going  with either one. However I'm more than likely going to end up with MM coilovers before too long.

Btw congrats on 1st place in FS! It's always a good battle between you and Tyler K. in the red 5.0

Here's my best (36.258) and final run on Sunday. In the future I'll have to make sure I bring at least one higher and lower gear to the track to be ready for whatever the O.D. throws at us, lol. Great courses this weekend and thanks to David for the great pics!  Smiley

It took awhile, but we finally got his kart running well again for this Sunday's event with VMSC! Now we just need to put his original gear back in to get him up to proper speed, lol

Great pics, had a lot of fun even if I didn't go that fast.  I love the variety of cars that come out!

I had spent most of Saturday in the garage getting the car ready as it was due for an oil change, which of course I spilled all over the exhaust when filling it making for a nice smoky ride there.  It's always fun seeing smoke billowing out of the back of your car in the rearview mirror, especially when they're known for catching on fire.  Then I had to troubleshoot an electrical issue that was causing half of the motor to stop firing intermittently.  Fix for that was to just unplug some stuff, who needs a cat converter temperature ecu anyway?  Those crazy Italians decided that one engine management system wasn't enough, so they put in two.  I'm guessing that because they're so reliable they figured why not double the stuff to go wrong.  Makes troubleshooting easier at least, just swap stuff side to side until the problem switches sides on the engine.

No problems on Sunday other than the guy behind the wheel, though.  The car had more in it but I couldn't keep the back end in check when I pushed it hard and a missed shift on my last run didn't help.  Hopefully I can make it out next month!

That new exhaust sounds amazing by the way, nice work!  If you ever want someone to drive it around the track so you can hear it let me know...hey it was worth a shot

MM are great people and even better products. A 3-link will make it feel like a different car, just plants that rear end.

Thanks, its always so close between us only difference between our cars is exhaust and tires ( I'm still on stock pirelli's) , he ran a blistering time the last run but picked up a couple cones

Thanks! I was trying to make it louder than yours, maybe I went too far though... it did drop almost 40lbs off of the back bumper, so at least i can claim some performance benefit to it.
