That is not that bad...looks worse then it is.
From a racer stand point ... it will be together for tomorrow..as long as they do not find a major tweak in the chassis.. then it becomes the question do we ? ANd how do we.. Or do we take tomorrow off and find a frame shop to tweak it back....

Then they will fix it right at home. OR find another shell(which Dean Martin has and hopefully the guys back at his shop will have it on a flat bed heading for Cody's shop at 8 am tomorrow..LOL)
We have done worse ... improvised strut tower puller with a dually, chain fall and two trailers...

will it be competitive? 70 recent chance ...
hopefully he killed it before he hit and rolled, (and then they will pull the plugs and do a clear out.).

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

11hrs of port-a-power, fenders, splitter, bumper, lower control arm, hammers, prybars, spindle, and a few other bits....
And she's operational for 840 am session.

Dems racin. Capaldi had everything we needed. Next event in Detroit, so the car goes from here after the race Friday to Capaldi shop and gets the roof and left side panel replaced. Wouldn't even be a noteworthy crash if the tire wall hadn't flipped it on it's lid.

Alec is ready to rock. It's ugly but should be still competitive.

Details please. Tonight was my last class until August and bringing my boy out to the track sounds like a proper way to spend a day. (I'll see if I can't find that post with your schedule.)

Any chance I can maybe have a shot at doing some donuts in the parking lot with that thing?

Already have the call in to my stock guy/cousin looking for free passes to the GP weekend. Comerica must have some sort of corporate tent for the big-wigs and special clients. Like me.

I'll PM you if it looks like I can get down there. Belle Isle is a 25 minute ride, tops.

P6!

The Kias and Acuras are sooo fast. That leaves everyone else working for fifth. Super exciting race on our end and Alec drove incredibly smart
