    "We can't continue to procreate as many offspring as we want" No truer words. The planet is groaning under the weight of humanity and we (humanity) just keep spitting out more people.

    2020 Superlite SLC For Sale

    Very interesting car, looks nice. As a seller of high performance machinery in the past I found that one would really need to see the engine and details of the twin turbo setup. Horsepower figures from a dyno run would do you worlds of good in trying to find the right buyer. A track day video...

    New member- NorCal

    Welcome Hunter, As a NorCal Superlite owner I can say I don't think I've ever seen an RCR GT40 or GTR in my travels here. Best of luck, it will be interesting to see if one pops up.

    S2's Build Thread

    Careful..... Scott will invent a CAR sized vacuum form machine to pull a body down out of Lexan. Just like RC cars.

    Pressed the button!

    The body will flow into whatever shape it sits at, eventually conforming to whatever forces are at work. I bet that the body is cured by the time anyone would receive it. That being said, 'cured' does not equal permanently stable. Example of movement - I was very careful to make sure the side...

    F1 2022

    And another thing. I hear the announcers state the new tire/wheel combination weighs 27 kilos/60 pounds per......really? I think not.

    F1 2022

    Carlos got the short end in qually, bummer. Mercedes showed remarkable race pace, George looking good. One of my favorite settings for a track. Switching over to IndyCar - Herta just can't get a break, dominates again, crappy pit stop helps lead to the result.

    F1 2022

    It's hard to count out MBZ, as Hamilton is magic in the racecraft department, we'll see what Russell is made out of on race day with that pile under him. But then, he did used to drive a Williams..... I call the manufactures like this; Ferrari - best two driver combo and best looking car ;)...

    F1 2022

    I like the styling of the new cars, except for the front wings are too far forward. Gone are the thousands of little air directors, the ugly bumps or steps where the front upper suspension rods joined top of the chassis. Like the new paint graphics on most of the cars, favorite - Alfa, Aston...

    SLC 24 Howard Jones

    Now thats a great complement to your morning hot chocolate! Iyyeeee like it. Easy to tell the confidence is "strong-like-bull" compared to earlier vids, way to spank those Mazdas you show'd 'em good. The hot looking McLaren M8 was a nice surprise, shame it wasn't up to speed. Nice driving and...

    SLC noise

    The challenge with any option will be getting an end with a small enough overall OD and a large enough bolt hole ID to fit into the lower front rod end pocket.

    SLC noise

    (SLC) I replaced the front suspension rod ends with custom made urethane "T" rod ends (similar to the ones shown above) some time ago. Had a shop in Texas make them up for me, the hardest part was getting ones with the proper sleeve/insert size for the lower control arm (Its a larger bolt than...

    SLC 24 Howard Jones

    Without video proof, it didn't happen. :p 150hp increase? - you should notice that. Are you still accelerating at the end of the straight? If yes, then a reduction in weight would be helpful as it will get you to speed sooner. Shorter gears will get you there faster, might take some load off...

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    My friend used to haul his daughter (with the proper safety gear) all over the place at 3 years old in his ZO6. He was amused at how many people gave him a scowl (this IS California remember) look as he motored past. On the other hand he got quite a few "thumbs up" from the envious as well. She...
