Peter can't afford me. i didn't want to mention that Chevrolet has won the race the same number of times as BMW, thus making them equals

VIR is one of the most beautiful places I can imagine, in addition to being such a great track.

Too heavy. Will add the tri-vented Motorsport24.de hood shown below during the offseason, along with a Lang Racing CF roof, new tinted Pro Glass Lexan all the way around, and Motec dash and PDM. Then I will reassess the weight to HP ratio and see where I am. Given that I am probably 100 lbs. heavier than the PO, I probably will need to change the intake and make some other changes to increase the whp beyond the current 334.
