Is the ECU pretty solid? Looks like its hanging out pretty far from the mounting location.

This is shaping up to be my dream (track) car, and all I've seen is the cage.

very nice. Do you actually need to have your cage certified for your club/class?

The twin master pedal box will be very cool. It is intended to be a bolt-on. A few holes will have to be drilled thru the firewall though. The pedalbox itself is completely new. I may salvage the clutch pedal. ;-)

sexy brakes! Looks like you could go a little bigger with those wheels though.

Bigger is not better ;-) I was very happy with 300x32mm (11.75" x 1.25"). In fact what maters most is the disc width for increased air gap. I only have 200hp anyway.
But yes, this 332x32mm kit might fit a few 16" wheels.
