Contrary to what many anti V8’ers say, the LS motor does not make drifting easy. Instead it enables good drivers to push it to a higher level. If you don’t believe us, look at drifting from 2006-8. It is much less spectacular.
|The ATI Super Damper works like a viscous coupling LSD to smooth out torsional twist in the crank helping component life and freeing up some power.
|Earl’s Swivel Seal fittings are used on all critical oil and fuel connections like these dry sump fittings. Swivel seal fittings are made of forged aluminum for strength. They also have a viton o-ring sealed swivel to make installation easier. Earl’s Pro-lite 350 hose is covered for heat protection with fire shield which is silicone rubber and fiberglass. It can take over 400 degrees.
|Hinson stainless steel headers are made to put an LS in an S chassis. They are nice parts. Stainless has half the thermal conductivity of mild steel and keeps heat in the pipes. Earl’s fire shield covers the hose for protection.
|More high quality Earl’s plumbing on the power steering system. 80 percent of failures to finish can be traced to wiring or plumbing issues in racing so having the best fluid transfer parts is a wise investment.
|Twins Turbo fabricated this cool oval section stainless exhaust from Vibrant 4″ oval section tubing. Oval tubing helps ground clearance.
|A Stack ST8916 data logging multifunction dash is being mounted. This GPS equipped dash is going to provide Matt with run on run data. Look for future articles by Matt on how to use logged data to improve your driving! An electronic dash is a great way to eliminate a bunch of individual gauges. Considering how many gauges and loggers it can replace, the Stack is actually an economical solution to race car instrumentation.
|When looking at some forum, we spotted a post making fun of Matt appearing in MotoIQ. Some FFF said Matt can’t do shit on a car. Here is a photo of Matt doing shit on a car. We have personally seen Matt do the majority of the work on his car over the last couple of weeks!
|Matt is so hardcore he bleeds over his labor!
The new Formula D rules do not allow a more tube frame car to be built like many forum mavens are fond of saying. Instead the new rules forbid altering most of the original unibody, the unibody must remain between the far ends of the front and rear suspension pickups.
