Update on the ESP Camaro

I've been putting some work in on the ESP Camaro and planning the 2012 Season over the past few weeks. 

Here are some photos of the progress:

 I put on new vinyl number plates made by SPS. The car will have an Orange/White theme as it develops so this should work nicely. I also have my Goodyear contingency sticks and some other various sponsor decals placed on the car now. Starting to look like racecar!

I installed 2-point UMI Performance sub-frame connectors courtesy of Strano Performance Parts.  

I also mounted up the 315/35ZR17 Goodyear Eagle RS sneakers that I will be running this year. This first set will be used at local events and for testing. 

After these changes, I removed the trailer hitch finally (because I bought at trailer, more on this later) which removed a hefty 31.4 off the back end of the car. I also changed the engine and transmission oil with some quality Red Line products. The car is ready for it's first race this weekend of 2012! Before my first SCCA National Tour event in March, the main goal will be tire testing, suspension tuning, and weight reduction through an aftermarket battery, removing the A/C unit, and removing the radio/speakers. Got to keep making this car faster because you never know how things will shake out at the Solo Nationals this year.
