So I've been gone for a while...Here are some updates! (BMWCCA IP/NASA GTS race car)

So I've been gone from the forums for a while, kinda got over it, but here are some updates as to what my car has been through lately.

I dunno when you guys last saw it, but here she is.

She got wrapped and we went to Laguna Seca for Oktoberfest 2013!

and then since we were 9 hours away from San Diego, we figured we would knock out another NorCal track, so we went to Thunderhill.

And then we ditched the crappy 2500 HEMI and got a proper to rig: 2007.5 Ram 3500 6-Speed manual, crew cab, dual rear wheel, 6.7L Cummins modded putting out about 550hp/1000tq.

Went to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Nevada with the LA BMWCCA

Having fun with a NSX

Adding another track to the trailer.

Aaaaand then the time finally came...Time for a full BMWCCA IP/NASA GTS legal 6+2pt weld in cage.

Taking out the rest of the interior..

Dropped it off at HG Motorsports for the cage.

Colin finalizing the bends for the main hoop


And that's only the tip of the iceberg... They have yet to finish it...

Then I'm going to paint the interior white, and the cage.... hmmm that's a secret.

Here's an album with 116 photos of just the cage build, and it isn't even done. Enjoy!
