    As I recall, Stephan aka Frenchy had motorcycle rear brakes on his charger.

    And how the hell did you get Reliant to only weigh 150lbs per rear wheel? the Laser weighs 350 each, with me in the car.

    Everything that had to be in the car went as far forward possible, everything behind the driver made light as possible.

    And yes, that was with me in the car. 2250 race weight.


    It is time, buckle up.

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    Awesome work Warren!

    Those are the same rear brake calipers that I run. I went through 3 sets of pads....constantly getting less aggressive as I went. I have the least aggressive on their now and still lock them up if i'm hard on the brakes. Have ruined a couple pairs of skinny tires this way. On my list is to add a Wilwood adjustable proportioning valve combo and install up front.


    Keep up the awesome work, and PLEASE come run with us at Norwalk!!!!

    Always art exhibit worthy, you're updates are truly inspiring.

    I don't know why the rear wouldn't pass tech unless you get a really cranky inspector. I might be concerned if it were a track car getting fatigue in the welds from roll torsion but this car won't be taking any turns over 5mph. Looks like a beautifully designed and stout piece. Congrats!
