    It's great to hear the racecar has found an appreciative owner!

    Curious about the "ed peters big disc brake kit"... Or is that a fancy way of saying SLH?

    He got the kit from Ed peters lol. I guess he just put ed Peters big Brake kit To remember. It's an slh kit. D150 master cylinder. Rear disc. Caravan brakes.

    I think I'm gonna try to fix the race car real quick. Shouldn't take much to get it going. I'm still finishing the 16v on the other car.

    Suspension, brakes etc. Putting the engine and trans in too. They are put together already. Honestly it looks pretty simple. He has everything for it.
