    Well, it’s been forever since I updated here. Mostly I just drive the Amazon around and spend my efforts on my other projects, but I’ve done a couple things. First off, the paint failed on the roof between the OEM paint and the OEM colored paint that was applied at some point in it’s life. This is a risk you run when you don’t strip down to bare metal. For now I just feathered out the delaminating area and vinyl wrapped the roof. Next, I started down the path of V2.5.5 by converting the front hubs (rears will be done soon) to 5x100 (so I can retain one of the 4x100 lug holes) and installing the new brake setup and air ride. The rotor hats are for a Mini Cooper and have the correct offset and almost the correct center bore. Just needs a small hub ring. The calipers are rear calipers off of a Tesla Model S performance. These aren’t the final version wheels or tire size (tires are close though). Right now the tires are crashing pretty hard, but I’m pretty sure more trimming, welding and painting will get me there. As a refresher, here’s the rendering of what my goal is (although, now it’s likely to have a carbon roof as well). Maybe there’ll be some track days in it’s future.

    Is there any update for this? I still get all the notifications through Tapatalk, but it’s dreadful to try and get anything to work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Nothing of significance. Just driving it and enjoying it. I also can't get R3v to work with my Tapatalk app, so it's a bit more difficult for me to load stuff here.

    154whp/154wtq stock M20B25 w/stock airbox, stock exhaust manifolds and stock DME. Only mod is my exhaust. Account for drivetrain losses and itÂ’s pretty good with completely unknown mileage. https://youtu.be/-aA5IuFUMpo

    Here it is. Much more coherent than I remember the recording being. Enjoy! https://www.raincitysupercars.com/th...a-guy-for-that (pretty sure it’s available on all podcast platforms as well)

    No one "likes" how they sound on film or audio. Cheerio mate. Live the dream.

    Podcast drops tomorrow. Rain City Supercars. I don’t like the sound of my own voice, but I guess that’s normal. https://www.instagram.com/p/B3LCXuwn...=1euu9vko1e5r0

    I wanna put some more racing inspired wheels on for the new look in the new season. Pretty stoked on these too! AMAZING Atom badges made by House Of Logos out of the UK !! Couldn’t be happier. These are stage badges. Buy a custom part fabricated by me, get a green dot Stage 1. Level up to the Stage 2 red dot, then the Stage 3 gold dot. Ultimate Full Builds get the Uber limited Polished Copper Stage 4 badge. Can’t wait until I get to see some out in the wild!
