To start press any key. Where's the "any" key?

Right now the diagonal brace (non-continuous) in the main hoop and the rear braces (not attached to a plate) would have a pretty good chance of keeping the car from being allowed to race.

While this isn't a ruleset for every group, it's a good place to start:

Cage rules start on page 70.
That is what I was thinking when I looked at the cage. Other than that nice build. And the brake package you talked about will hold up fine with just one more upgrade, Bronze guide bushings on the calipers all around.

thanks for the compliments guys - the car is now fully complete and simply looks great. I am amazed at the results of this car after driving it and riding in it around the street momentarily. You are right this car is well balanced but also the car is so smooth from what I can tell. Downshifts are precise and are easily achievable in any gear. Should be a blast - i will post pics of this coming weekend.

All that time/money for an HPDE car? Any particular reason you decided to put this much work/money into a car for that purpose? You could have just taken the E46 the way it sat and probably had just as much fun. Or you could have spent the same amount of money you probably did here and actually be racing! Do you have ANY other plans for the car other than this?
