I think Turnip prefers a welded diff over his factory S54 with limited slip. Seems like I remember him saying the difference in the final drive (a difference of only .02) was the difference between him topping out and getting passed on the straights or being able to keep pulling and accelerating. However, the BEAMS ECU is limited to 180 km/hr, which I can do in 4th gear so he must have a speed cut defender. It's worth asking him about.

That really only applies to his track. My tracks are going to be different lengths and everything, no way to really tell until you drive it. Welded differentials though put heavy wear on the axles if there are too many tight turns.

From the other day.
Forgot to post






After some sand blasting....
kinda rusty in the rocker panels, but the frame and suspension towers are all solid. Some welding is needed on the subframe also found via sand blasting... but very fixable.

Also purchasing maf adapter....

There will be no side skirts lol - it'l get some some sheet metal welded on on the way down the side... *maybe lol* and then painted.... maybe red... maybe black.

I'm thinking black since the engine is gonna have a little bit of color to it wink.gif if you get my drift

It's free, just have to drive to the spots via the spectator maps on the website. It tells you what time you need to be there and how to get there. Also you can walk around the service area and see the cars before the rally starts. I will say that last year this rally was a cluster****. However they brought on some good people and it should be much better organized than last year.... especially as far as spectating.

It's not a national rally so none of the top guys will be there, but there will still be plenty of fast guys/cars.
