No.  I haven't had time to do anything yet.  Home soon and then I can take a rest or start on my car or prep my Sapphire GTS for the SSCC next month.

I did send out a few emails concerning parts, aerodynamics and other relevent issues but, I had been trying to surpass all the work to my TT by buying Hugh's GTS.  Now that it's gone to someone else - I can get back to concentrating on my Black TT. 

I do want to collect another couple trophies from NORC/SSCC though so I will hopefully be doing that next month while also getting started on my TT again.

Since I didn't buy the other car I have enough money to buy an automatic and I have to decide so that when I take the car in for tuning the new Motec I only have to do it once (hopefully)

I'll do an oil change now that I have 2 cases of new Viper oil filters!!!  I have a 10L jug of 15 - 40 just sitting in the garage anyway.

Ted  , here are a few pics of my rear wing and sail panels ,some of the ideas may be able to incorporate into your sail panels , the adjustable rear lip may help you fine tune it on the salt .

Ted
 I cant recall what thread you asked about resonable priced race suits but you should check out Speedway motors or jegs , should be able to get into one for 1200.00 or so , do you have a HANS device yet ?

Jegs  said that they don't have a listing since the 2012 catalogue.  Then it was $1750.  They have no stock.  He's going to call Simpson on Monday and request a price etc for a 2 piece. 

I asked if I should expect a 3 layer quilted suit like my current SSCC suit that PartsRack sponsored for me.  He said yes, it's a fuel suit.  Great for winter or being in a fire.  Not so good for real life. 

Summitt has one listing for $860 pants and $860 jacket that says SFI 20 available but not any other info except that it's X carbon and Kevlar knit.

Are you allowed to wear a SFI 15 suit in your alcohol clown car or do you also need a "Fuel suit"?

Darryl ... test and tune on the salt July 11 - 13 , 2014  Gets you a chance to go check if it'll work for you.
