SCCA points event 1. The car still wasn't quite ready for competition, but we still ended up at the top of the SM scoreboard, so here we are. https://youtu.be/ivqdE0MAqzU

Looking good. I used to run with OVR, looks like they still have nice big courses. Where is it being held now?

[]Andy Bennett

The paddock area at National Trail Raceway is the only spot available to us right now. It's large, but bumpy.

[]Craig Moody

Continue the domination !

Running the new 3.0 with high-rate front springs and no front sway bar. Still a little oversteer, but getting there.

A great build, indeed!

[]Ivan Smiljanec

The Cougar's looking great Andy as usual!

[]Andy Bennett

Most of the photos are indeed at the OSU Ackerman lot. The season has been split between there and the lot at National Trail Raceway.

[]Andrew Johnson

Is this at the OSU lots off 315? I grew up in Columbus and finished out my last few years of Solo2 there.
