Sanitary build and you will be pleased with a fat set of rubber donuts on four 18x11 Apex rims ----- hello stiction !! Noticed you have done 20+ years of W2W racing , but since the 07 GT does not have a full cage or back panel to seperate the fuel tank from the cockpit are you just setting this beast up for Time Trials? Good luck getting weight out as that is such a big advantage folks often forgo! Look forward to seeing your progress and do you normally run at Autobahn, Blackhawk Farms , or elsewhere?

Welcome again , by the way!

Hi Bill, I'm just doing HPDE days with the car mostly at Blackhawk Farms and Road America. I've been to Autobahn and Indy as well! I didn't get out at all this year due to a fight with prostate cancer and few other issues. I have alot of work to do over the winter and hope to get alot of track time next summer! I don't plan on any wheel to wheel racing with this car just having fun and racing myself! Last summer I made some very big improvements in my lap times, over two seconds at Blackhawk and six seconds at RA!! There's still more there so I'm going to keep working at it! I raced gokarts starting in 1975 and still do that today! I raced a Formula Vee with SCCA for fifteen years, won the Cen/Div championship four times. Things just got too expensive running SCCA so I retired from that. I found out about these track days with the Northwoods Shelby club and gave that a try. I've been hooked ever since! Way more track time than when I was racing and not as expensive! I get a kick out of showing far superior cars my tail lights! I still race gokarts as well, vintage racing is growing like crazy and a ton of fun! I have a twin engine kart that would blow your mind, crazy fast and fun! I'm going to keep going and improve the car as much as I can and see how good I can get it on my small budget. I'm already faster than I was in my formula car! My goal is to get as close to the A sedan lap times! The lap record at Blackhawk is a high 1:16 lap and I got down to 1:19 48 last summer. With a stock 4.6 I think that's pretty good, everyone is faster than I am down the straights it seems! anyways I will post more pics when I get going on it again.

Awesome!

My uncle races Formula Vee. He's been doing that for as long as I can remember. The first time I ever sat in a race car was when I was really little and he drove me around the block in it!

Nice driving JR , you definitely look relaxed and have your steering set prior to many of the turns! Looks like you don't have much trouble catching some cars that appear they should have a bit more power and aero than you. Appreciate you posting the video and I need to make it to Blackhawk Farms in 2021.
