It's the next step in my school cars progress!!!! The steering box is the next step in making this car feel better to drive. I picked up a steering rack so far, but the subframe, steering column and other parts are still being...


SpeedHero Racing school: Our first and second semi-official track day!

Let's pickup where we left off...where were we....right! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Digging around in the engine bay I found both of these. Jammed into the engine mounts.

The idea of building and owning a car isn't exciting really, and it shows in my racecar sitting for months. Sure it'd be fun to drive...
