    It was good to see you guys yesterday. The car looks great. I love the color you painted the cage. Do you want a GodSpeed Fabrication sticker for the rear down tubes?

    Great work Parker, I love it.

    Who makes those nifty green brake lines?

    Nice progress, lots of good shops up your way.

    Couple quick notes,

    the sway bar endlinks should not be connected until the suspension is under load/on the ground (so the load on the links will be neutral while the car is sitting on the ground). If not, when the cars rest on the floor the endlinks will be under load (leading to premature failure).

    Looks like you went for the AKG rear adjustable camber/toe brackets. Keep an eye on them and be prepared to tack-weld them into place. Since they are (cheaper) bent pieces, they cannot be made to as tight/snug tolerances than machined brackets.

    EDIT: I assume you're talking with the guys at TC up there?

    Wow. That looks like a ton of fun man! That cage is beautiful!!

    I've never really delved into the differences between PRO3 and SpecE30 but boy oh boy, seeing this I can definitely see that you guys can run nicer suspension setups.

    do you think you'll be running this year? so many PRO3 builds happening this year. i hope to be out on the track, but Im building a Club Rabbit car. It fits in my budget and i have a shit-ton of spare vw parts so it made more sense than a PRO3. hope to see the BBQ2U out there

    No, It may be a tad bit weaker when broke down on paper, but it is unnoticeable and completely safe. I have a sparco front strut bar to install as well.
