    Air leaks with slip fit collectors and EFI causing rich A/F?

    The 298.45 should be from the ground to the center of the wheel as should the 323.85 in the rear. Not noted on your sketch, the front sill is 339.7 and you have the back correct at 358.7.

    Part 2 of Don's Mk IV Build

    Last weekend I installed a glass rear windshield and I'm very happy about the results. The old plexi glass just looked like a plexiglass window. Thought I would share a few quick photos I took in the garage. Always nice to make improvements to the car.

    Last Saturday I won best of class in the race car division! What a rush to win something for showing the car. I have attached some pictures. The best part of the day was taking the car on track at speed. I got two good runs past the grandstands up the hill to turn 1 at over 100+ MPH. I...
