Peter, are those the CEFX front end pieces?

Any reviews/comments you can share on them?

In anticipation of something to come

Also the old skool front end does not provide camber gain, something I thought my WGT needed. I can't really say how good the setup really was, since my car was tipping in the main...

Very good. The bottom arm mount is actually Hyperdrive since it's drilled for 8-32 screws. But the CEFX upper arm mounts are a must, the stock plastic is softer then silly putty!

WGT made an impression on us at the Nats last weekend. Several of the guys are starting up the class full time now. And I want in. And this is the car I want. I like the old skool front end, so I'm thinking I will go with the sport.

Talk to Andrew. He used to run WGT. He helped me work on my CRC when I was there, once upon a time.

Yes, he's in the class again. Believe he is running the new CRC, I think every one is running the CRC here. Except Dumas, and I don't know if he will be running in our summer series. The Speedmerchants were looking good at the Nats as well as the CRCs. I like to be different.

In my quest to be the oddball everywhere I go, I have the McAllister Ferrari Fiorano 599 coming as well.


WGT3 will be here tomorrow, body may too. Too late to get it on the track this weekend, but who knows. I might miss some more sleep after work Friday night to get it together.
