    Some pics from Friday @ NJMP with PCA
    It was never off the trailer from the shop and it was a spur of the moment thing. Found out about it at 9pm and left for the track at 4am
    First pictures ever at a track. Never had a chance to pack. Had to borrow a helmet, had no numbers, even had to grub tape and make some cheesey ones...

    Looking at the transmission hump there...how much sound insulation did you have to remove from that area? Was thinking about adding a little more there, and I might have almost exactly enough left.

    I've got no clue, whatever was there is still attached to the bottom of the carpet in a box. I think its just some extra padding around that area IIRC. I can take a look and measure...

    No need to measure. I didn't explain myself correctly. A lot of the carpet in the car has a very dense foam backing (cheap MLV). I just wanted to know whether what you removed was merely carpet or foam backed carpet.

    I'll take my remaining 6 square feet of Luxury Liner Pro and spot treat that area when I figure out what kind of material is located there. *writes self note to buy another sheet to treat the front doors*

    I know that this is not what you would do, but I'm working hard to carefully mitigate noise without adding excessive weight and I'm working to counterbalance that with weight reduction mods. Next up is a Deka ETX20L battery, which is 26 pounds lighter than current 78N battery. 3795 pounds and falling!

    Turned out to be one of the holes that was drilled for the closeout panel went too far and put a 1/8" hole in the top of the tank.
    New tank is going in now...

    I like that interior pic. Outside looks pretty stock still. Once you sneak a peek in there, you know something serious is going on.

    I don't know how I haven't posted in this thread yet. I guess I've just been too busy admiring...

    Do any of the new NASA rule changes affect your build at all? I haven't read everything, but it looks like there are some big ones for the whole TT/PT/ST format. I didn't do TT at all this season due mainly to Air Force stuff, but I was thinking about moving to TTA next year. It doesn't even exist anymore.
