Thanks man, appreciate it. We’re really bummed that didn’t pan out as well. So much potential. That said, it forced us to hunker down and find alternatives. Good news is that while none of it is yet available stateside, my source that made us the WTCC kit said they also have the capacity/ability to make us carbon fiber doors/roof and other panels which would be incredible.

More parts! We’ll be building a custom intercooler off of this Garrett core that supports up to 750hp, which should be plenty for our application without going overkill.

Dimensions: 18.00 Inch X 12.10 Inch X 3.00 Inch Air Intercooler
Part #:703518-6004

Look what arrived StopTech Trophy kit for all four corners. We'll be running ST60R up front and ST40R out rear with PFC11 pads. We haven't weighed these vs stock but I've heard that they not only provide a massive improvement in braking, but they cut close to 12lbs of unsprung weight from each corner. HUGE thanks to Anish over at Speed Freaks USA for the great hook-up.

Now this is where it gets fun! Had Wes at Motive Artwork work up some livery designs... After working up a dozen or more, these are the top four. Feel free to chime in with any thoughts. The goal is to draw from the John Player Special Black/gold look without being a direct copy... going for more of a modern interpretation of the style without the 70’s porn look.

Love to hear some thoughts!

Might be a little too soon to get her on track... plan is to be working out some of her kinks at that time and then get on track later in April. But... we’ll see

Thanks!!! My design guy is incredibly talented. Unfortunately he’s made it super touch to decide. Even after staring at these all night I can’t land on one. According to the IG community (@DaftPhotog) the response has almost overwhelmingly been for #3 and #4... but I really like 1 & 2 as well. #firstworldproblems

I think what made the JPS livery was the fact that there wasn't much gold and it was mostly black. I think of the ones presented no.4 looks the goods.

Definitely. The original JPS design was black with gold pinstriping. I had a render of that style done on my car and once we saw it, quite a few of us felt like it wasn’t the right fit. We’ve envisioned a modern day twist on the JPS theme all along. Great news is that a few of those designs above are definitely within striking distance

#2 from the side for sure.

but looking at the back of the car, #4 will look best to your competitors. I assume that's the view you'd prefer to accentuate. that gold line above the rear quarter cutouts will make this thing look wiiiiiide

He's probably out driving the thing instead of posting in here. What kind of guy does that?
