|Tyson crosses the finish line with #186 ES at the expansive Zmax parking lot.|
The car is struggling with lots of understeer, so we have about 3 different options to try and mitigate that with suspension settings. Otherwise, the handling is an unbelievable upgrade and once everything is dialed in, it's going to be a great car. The only negative at this time is the alignment still is a big out of whack, so it'll be another trip to the shop this week.

|The small, mouse-sized opening in the trunk lid.|
While I was packing the car to head home, I noticed some fuzzy stuff hanging out of the trunk lid, where there's a little gap in the sheet metal on the inside that creates a small cavity where the latch is. Sure enough, I pulled out a couple hand-fulls of chewed up insulation and trash from the former rodent residents. Glad I still haven't found any little bodies in there and that has to be another few grams of weight savings!
|It seemed like some of the insulation that was near where the rollbar was installed was missing from one side...found it!|
Next up this week: correct the alignment again, take another stab at putting a hard top on the car, swap out to the track seats, replace the regular brake pads with high performance track pads, flush the brakes with DOT4 fluid for greater heat resistance, and rotate the tires.
