Yeah Graham's car is really nice. If you want to see it in person come to the Midwest Se7ens Gathering in June. His will be there along with a bunch of others. Russ

Yeah, I got a brief ride in Grahams car at the 2011 Gathering. Quick and smooth. Very NICE! IIRC, Graham won the Auto-X event that day, too.

Gotta ask about that exhaust that comes out of the back instead of the side... probably makes the interior noise a bit less? The use of rectangular tube instead of round tube is interesting too!

i wish i could get my exhaust out the back just because of the noise but it would have to go under the car.

Ford Cortina spindles turned to accept the Toyota hubs with Brembo brake rotors. I found out later there is a way to use different bearings so you don't have to turn the spindles. :roll:
:cheers:
