Matt--

On page 8 of this thread there is a picture of your rear brake caliper. Is that caliper bracket the typical one from EMPI or did you source that elsewhere?

thx in advance

I bet Matt is busy with his work right now... I don't follow it very closely but sounds like a good race is shaping up!!

Come on off season, let Matt build this super!

oh ya for sure. ill have to get a pic of all 3 of us together....hahaha. john/KCW taught me a lot of life lessons that ill never forget and i more or less build my work ethic around them.

- the simpler you make your life the happier you will be
- cars dont build themselves, get to work and bust ass, quite talking about it.... your mouth doesnt do the work, your hands do (excluding sex) haha
- lets all face fact here, johns success has been because hes a get it done guy, he doesnt wait around and do a little here, a little there, he just strait busts ass and gets it done....there's no reason NOT to. so ive learned that and thats whay my projects get done in a timely manner.

And we're back! Nascar season is over and it's time to get the Super running again. To catch you guys up, the engine blew about 6 months ago, and the car has been sitting in my driveway idle for way too long! I've got the engine bay all prepped, repainted, rubbered, and ready for a new engine. I'm staying aircooled to keep things simple, but I've got a few things in mind to spice it up regardless.
