Don't get too carried away Ron...that is the Street car not the 'real' Prod car still under construction.  We won't get to shake-down that suspension for at least another 6 months.

I did get plenty of comments on the amount of body roll until I told them it was a 'street' suspension and lack of a full cage.  What's underneath is nothing other than Delta's upgraded spring and sway-bar package; not even adjustable shocks! 

Wheelspin in 2nd gear was a problem.  Those 20" Hoosiers made for an effective 4.38:1 rear-end.  I found it easier to short-shift to 3rd rather than fight the torque multiplier in 2nd.  Even with the W58 having a higher 1.89:1 second gear, it was still a problem. 

All and all the weekend was a success, the car ran every lap, no DNF or DNS, temps great, pressure great; a real confidence booster.  I can live with no rear brakes...been thinking about a disc conversion anyway!
