The car with the new 09 parts on it is really good. It had a really good balance, really good steering but the rear end stayed planted. I had Brian Thomas drive and he felt the same way about the car. Hopefully we'll get out a little more soon to do more testing.

Also thanks to Bryon Nakahara for putting it together.

was out at CP today saw the complete conversion and the car was incredible. i was impressed. i was seeing the same consistency yet the car had more steering and attacked the corner better. and where everybody was on 35s or 38 his car was on 40s. and after the warm up laps to get the tire going it was really good. i have a couple of the parts. but you have to buy them separately and that get a little expensive but i was thoroghly impressed.

I know a conversion kit is out there...just not sure what shops have them yet. But since you already have some of the parts just get them seperately.

Joel,

Your car looked pretty good out there...When you have a chance to get the new parts, you will definitely like the car even more.
