Getting all the pieces to rotate into place just right was a bit of a pain. I recommend putting it up on the car with everything very loose so they can all rotate around. It'll fit VERY tight against...

Happy to hear discussion in either direction from current racers and those building SE46 cars, but Jason and I agreed that this is relatively common practice and should be considered allowable.

It's really not about aero. The stock mirror is often damaged, easily blocked by cages, nets, etc. It can't be adjusted easily once you're seated in the car. These are all resolved by putting a...

We're up to about 18 builds currently going on. Minus the few cars that were finished recently. I believe there are 3 of them racing on the west coast this weekend!
