    It would be fun to hook up! I'm rarely ever that far north. It sounds like I might be at NMRA MIR this year, it would be to work the show though, probably not with my hooptie.

    The limiters are from Double As performance. Wish I was the brainchild behind the design though.

    Out with the old and in with the new! The front suspension is now finished on the car. We did a side by side comparison from the QA1 parts that were in the car previously to the UPR parts that are in the car now. Not only do the UPR parts look sharp in the silver powder coat but the quality is far improved from the old k member that was in the car. For starters it's all chromoly, secondly the welds are beautiful and it fits like a glove. The a arms are fully adjustable and use nice heim joints and good ball joints. Everything went as expected and UPR suspension looks killer on the front of the car!

    This is the old QA1 stuff..

    Side by side comparison from QA1 to UPR. The UPR parts are very well built in comparison.

    We removed the front clip to finish painting all the front bars and began the body work process before the car goes to get it's new vinyl wrap.
