Car's looking great Tony! You guys should consider traveling to Road America in April of 2023 and driving with the Northwoods Shelby Club. http://www.nwshelbyclub.com/ Its been the "season opener" for a bunch of us from MInnesota the past few years. And with RA's resurfacing project, it will be like driving a new tack.... kind of. Weather can be iffy some years, but by April, us northerners start to get the itch bad! Would be fun to see fellow trackers in person!

Damn I wish AJ made a similar splitter kit for the regular GT. Everything looks great Tony
 
@TMSBOSS here is my driver mod car. My buddies all yelled at me enough to get a driver mod car….i sat in every spec miata i could and my knees were at my ears. So a bmw buddy suggested a z3. He found me a red z3 prepped for track only use. He only found red, i dislike red, so i had it wrapped.

ive been getting my daughter into the sport so she helped design the wrap with my buddy

heres the result. (ISH RACING is my daughters initials)

“The fighting unicorn”

yes the wrap is a 50 footer but i paid $500

i will be doing a top gear esque type thing with it. Anyone can drive it on autobahn south. Whoever gets the fastest time at the end of the year gets a trophy and a prize

I so agree with TMS, as my son and I have been racing/autocrossing since he was 15. Now with him approaching 40 and me in a state of decomposition, we are still playing with cars. He is Nationally Competitive in Autocrossing with his EVO 9 and I am a damn good tire warmer! The fun with your child/children can not be valued enough and I often find myself skipping track time so I can run with him at an autocross. I will continue to do both, but since his work schedule limits when he can go, I work around his time constraints because the fun with your offspring is so fantastic and memorable.

Love the car and I bet she loves having her initials on the hood signifying the " Racing Team!!"
 
First day on track starting the season out right. My steering wheel covers the rpm lights on the dash so now i need to grt an external one. My shelby tech cleaned up all the wires, made an cf insert thr dash mounts to, and moved the wipers to a switch on the control panel. AJ splitter is top notch. Im taking all the Archetype stuff off because i need more race focused stuff. The new @APEX Wheels forged rims are soooooo nice. The z3 is a blast to drive.

not that my say matters but I vote paint top side and leave vents and underneath exposed.
I agree. That would look great, but I’d leave as is.

1) It looks great already
2) it’s a race car

@Tonymustang302 , Do whatever your heart and your wallet can agree on.
