    SL-C, GT-R or Moab

    I don't think any of them would useful as a winter vehicle in Ohio.

    Unfinished RCR Ferrari P4 on BaT

    This could be a good deal, considering the ridiculously low reserves BaT usually makes sellers agree to.

    CamT's build thread

    I've done stripes on several dip jobs. It's really easy, just use good tape. 3M Automotive Performance masking tape works well.

    CamT's build thread

    Be prepared for people at Cars & Coffee, the gas station, etc. to tell you all about the other SLC they've seen, the green one. o_O:D Happened to me a bunch after I peeled the dip and got the car vinyl wrapped. It was crazy the number of people who seriously wouldn't believe me when I told...

    Suspension cracking sound. Houston builders...

    Have you tried lubing your heim joints? They make a lot of noise when they're dry.

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    Don't worry, you'll probably never get to explaining the emblem. You WILL be explaining what the car is 1000s of times. ;)

    Storing Paperwork & Tools

    I built a little "glove box" out of aluminum to the left of the driver's seat. It was big enough to store paperwork, phone, sunglasses, detailer, and a few tools

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    I've bought several pairs of driving shoes and the Puma Drift Cats are by far the best. Not very expensive either:

    Anyone got $420k laying around?

    I think that's the "yes honey, I'm trying really hard to sell it, but I'm not getting any interest" price.

    Vintage air trinary switch wiring

    My wiring harness did not have any InVert modules installed. I found this out when I followed the instructions that came with the system and fried the fan1 circuit in the master cell. I ended up completely bypassing the Infinitybox system for the fans and a/c wiring.

    Overheating, suggestions?

    Just bypass the Infinity Box and run the fans from the ECU and A/C trinary switch.

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    Cam - The taillights on my Elise are the stock housings that I retrofitted with LEDs. See post 38 on this thread: There are also several aftermarket units available like this one...

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    Lotus Elise taillights should look good on a SL-C. I just converted my taillights to LED halos.

    Handling - RCR40 vs SL-C (or other RCR cars)

    I recently sold my SL-C and bought an Elise. JMHO, but your Exige is a much better choice for the Tail of the Dragon.

    Slc how does it stack up against the super cars of the world

    Where are you getting the performance numbers from for the SL-C? I'm not really buying the 1/4 mile time. I never took mine to the strip, but traction is a real problem. I would not have wanted to race a ZR-1.

    Registration Dilemma - No engine serial # on receipt

    My GMPP crate 376/480 I bought from Jegs did not have a serial number or a tag. I called Jegs about it and they told me GM doesn't put serial numbers on them. There was a serial number on the crate, which I cut off and saved.

    Registration Dilemma - No engine serial # on receipt

    GM doesn't put serial numbers on their crate engines, so there isn't a number to put on the receipt. Ohio has the same requirement, but when I got my car inspected, I told them that and they passed me without a serial number on the receipt.

    Correct bolts/screws to attach trans adapter plate to GM Engine

    I used alloy steel capheads for this. I'm with Cam, I wouldn't use stainless. However, titanium would be total overkill.
