    I love reading this build again and again. So exciting with all the wrenching and racing going on!

      In post #20, how did you press in the control arm ball joints into the spindle. Partner and I used a ball joint kit to seperate the ball joint from the spindle, but I can't mentally figure out how to reverse the process.

        Well I finished my Rookie season 27th out of 71 drivers which is great considering a few things.
        a: I only entered 4 races out of 15 and b:My engine had over 300k on it with a dead 6th cylinder.
        This season we are looking to drastically improve our place...

        Here are some quick shots of what is going on so far.

        This is a picture of the clutch after one full season, but it is nice to show the condition of the engine I was running on. Haha, never touched it when I built the car. Just wanted it to get me though the first season and she did.

        Years of gunk and oil and dirt. haha:

        Reid and I pulled the new M20 out of the black e30 and had in installed in the race car in 3.5 hours. We pulled it and separated the transmission, clutch and flywheel before the super bowl. Installed the racing clutch, flywheel, pressure plate and had it installed an hour after:

        I have lots more pictures but they are too big to load onto r3vlimited/gallery so I will have to wait till I have time to resize to do a big photo dump.
