Cursory web search indicated the noise restriction is always at Lime Rock -- their restriction, not the event sponsor.

Some of the SCDA events/clinics look interesting. But not interesting enough for me to fit a roll bar to the car.

Places like VIR have no noise restrictions whatsoever but being out in the...

Wheels take effort as the OE offsets are unusual. 17x7 +55 front and 17x8.5 +65 rear. I have no idea if the wheels you're looking at will work without buggering the fenders by pulling them. If...

Cross country meaning where to where? You're not gonna box this, just plastic wrap, tag it and ship it. Tried Greyhound? I saw "over 78" in their shipping area.

I was under the impression that the FIPK airbox sealed at the top against the hood and kept the engine heat out of it. Regardless I don't recall any hesitation in the summer but will pay more...
