Online builds... getting bored and making a Prius and insight. Pretty dull cars to build and own but id say this, the insight is probably the one id take... I guess lol

Rdium catch can installed this weekend! Super easy install,

All you really need is a needle nose pliers, 10mm socket(if you can find yours) flat tip screw driver, and an 18mm wrench!

Mounted my wheels and tires yesterday! Went with Motegi Racing wheels and 265/35 bridgestone RE71R tires!

Next up should be the sway bar and front pipe if I can get that on before my 1st events in two weeks. Not much time but if the front pipe doesn't go on I am not too worried. I also don't mind racing the car without the karcepts bar on right away as I like to learn a car before I go changing too many things.

Video from Saturdays event in Iowa. Car was a bit of a handful at first with the cold weather, new tires and just overall getting used to it! had some good runs but kept getting quicker but hitting cones, had to find the edges of this thing lol. My last run I was able to lay down a 53.7, enough for top pax, top raw and top DS time.

I got my PRL front pipe in and the quality of it is absolutely amazing! Well don't PRL!!

Since this pipe sits right up to the oil pan I decided to heat wrap it with some design engineering titanium heat wrap. a 2" by 15ft roll was enough to do the pipe from the fleet portion on back! Ill but some more to do the small front portion leaving the flex bit exposed to it can do its job. Since the pipe is already covered by the lower slash shields I didn't feel bad covering up the awesome work PRL did! hah.

Honestly this isn't something you need to do its just something I wanted to do to try and keep oil temps down this autoX season.
