I have had this car for over 12 years, daily it during the summer months. I Have tracked it, acquired a SCCA license with it and now it's getting the sounds of 2 wheels in it. I ride bikes, pilot karts and have always wanted a street legal shifter kart.... so Promotive is the avenue I chose for this.

My pics are too big to post it says.

Just how I planned it:lift it, jackstand it, unbolt it, drop it on my palletjack and roll out. Looks like I have a 10 year debris collection going on here..

I started this build to get it fired up by the end of April and on the streets by mid May.
I am feeling quite good about my timeline.

Pulled the subframe apart to check it out and assemble accordingly. Ran into an issue with the KAD hubs and Mini Sports rotors..
No room in the inside, I have been denied. Going to do some more recon to get the brakes from stopping my roll out..

Fixed the KAD hub problem, bought more KAD.
I took pics of the KAD binders next to the Mini Sport ones, for comparison.

KAD hubs compared to Mini Sport hubs for referencing. I like the fact that Kent's can be mounted either side and had the ball joints and races installed..so nice.. Mini Sports are very nice as well. You can see the geometry differences as well. Also the Mini Sports are thinner profile to fit under 7.5 inner rotors, KAD is thicker.

Working out the numerous wires that no longer are needed. So many wires that route back and forth going the same junction. I have cut half of it out or more.
