The GXP is in ASP, not BSP.

I won't be competing in ASP this year...

WOW! 

I absolutely love that people are pushing the envelope with the little Sol. Can't wait to see videos of a windsheildless solstice tearing up corvettes.
May the Schwartz be wit you

Does the rule book say you can remove the windShield Or did you do that Because the rule book doesn't say you can't?

HAHAHAHA
Now that would be some great Driving

It used to be BSP, but they re-grouped the cars.  But since they did not eliminate awd from the group, I really dont see the point

This means if I go back to AutoX, I need to buy 2 A Magnets.
:D

Ah, don't be scared of the AWD cars. There is no reason a Kappa can't beat them.

In the rain, I am not so sure. 

Good Luck with the season.  That chop top looks mean!!!!!

I'm the only Kappa left in ASP, so I'm going to try to show that you can beat the Rally cars.  I've beaten some of them, but just not the 3 or 4 fastest ones out there.

I know it's kind of a hi-jack, but here's the latest.
We have 2 more bends and a couple cuts and we'll be ready to start TIG welding the cage in.

Here it is tacked in.


Here's an above view of the door bars showing how they kick out.
The upper bar kicks out at a 45 then goes parallel to the car.
The lower bar makes a straight line to where the two door bars meet up.
