    Actually, this works out. For the self-machined parts you'd have an invoice for the raw materials and the processing cost could be discounted/ignored if done in-house. This is good because it...

    Ok, fun times were had, but I have two gripes, well, three.

    1. The faster cars in the autocross should run first in the endurance. If they're going to make any attempt to "normalize" scores,...

    We're running ours to the side because the muffler would stick out too far from the rear if we went the other direction. Also, you can balance the weight by sticking an oil cooler in the other...

    Account for leaks. Our air shifters never worked right, always leaked, and we often ran out of air after short periods of testing.
