Ouch! So he hit the wall the 1st day? Is that a no-prep/grudge car? I imagine those racers are job security :)

I made a post then deleted, but now I am making it again :) How are the front frame rails set up? It looks like it is still using part of the stock frame?

It was a stock front frame rail deal. Now it will be cut off at the firewall and be all tube. For the most part it was a pretty much stock bodied camaro with a 4 link setup in the rear. Its all gonna be changed now. Full carbon front, carbon doors etc.....

We skipped the paint on this car. All the body parts were already black and they just get wrecked anyway. Looks fine from the grandstands.

Only one race so far and already replaced the right side number that got tire smeared from another car.
