Race week is officially here. Basically, that means that:
  • We've run out of things to argue about, which for this build, has been numerous.
  • Like Aggies, we didn't lose, we've run out of time to make the car a winner.
  • We ran out of paint. And lets be honest, anything besides painting, we suck at (with no offense directed to the fab man Nick and his exquisite body work...and I'm not referring to his body, nor the front mesh job)
  • The neighbors are threatening to call the cops over too many late night testing sessions.
  • Our wives have disowned us and are dating authentic Swedes named Sven, Torkel, and Olaf.
Anyhow - the race is this weekend. Weather outlook is pretty good, car reliability outlook is cloudy with a chance for sunshine, and the fun outlook is very sunny. Hope to see you there this weekend. If you want to know how to find us in the paddock area...look for this, as it will be the only one there (you could also look for the cloud of white smoke and oil spills):

Here are the finished photos of the car...that is, finished as long as I am successful in beating back the dogs on the team who want more and more graphics on the car:

(By the way...."KILL" is not what we're trying to do to each other)

Just like a F18 cockpit, except with a Pac Man style boost gauge added. And holes in the floor boards.

Dual exhaust pipes...kind of. Like a Lexus IS-F....

Our motto. Show - No Go.

We've failed at keeping regular updates on the car build in 2010...which is not surprising since we suck at most things we do. But since we last posted on here...we now have a roll cage, racing-ish tires, a junk-yard spec racing body kit, an engine that runs (for now), and we're now midway done on the paintjob (which means we've gotten tired of working on reliability / engine related items). Some crappy BlackBerry photos at the bottom for your enjoyment / headshaking "those boys have issues" comments.

Before looking at the photos....the race is NEXT WEEKEND. We'd love if you came out to cheer for us, or to drink beer with us, or to laugh at us, or to find us engine parts:

When: February 20-21
Where: MSR Houston (http://www.msrhouston.com/)
Time: Best to show up on Saturday around lunch. Sunday is good too, but we might be out by then.
How do I find you: Easy. Look for the HUGE white semi truck and trailer.


The last dance with the original 900 race car. Farewell crappy car.

Welding in the roll cage in Dallas:

Driving to Tony's for some maintenance work. This car is not exactly street legal, nor quiet. And it has a huge wing on the back.

Body work partially complete:

Super racy valve cover:

Notice the wall art (thats the roof from the original 900)

Paint job 50% complete as of last night:
