Way cool. Your car has always been one of my favorites because of what you accomplished. I like that you've shown a big budget isn't needed to have fun nor compete with the professional shop builds. Congratulations Mills

awesome!

Love the wood splitter/rear diffuser. How much did that help to plant the car?

My RX-7 with LS7 and 315f/335r would roast the tires coming over crests at Thunderhill until I put a splitter and rear wing on it.

The splitter was a tremendous difference, the diffuser helps a lot too, but not as dramatic as the splitter. However the diffuser works so well it keeps getting sucked off the car! The exhaust blows through the center of it creating even more downforce. the car gets very loose when its not on the car. I put a carbon fiber wrap on the top side and painted the leading edge of the splitter red, no one knows it's plywood!

You rock, Mills! I was going to post something when G.M. did the online version of your expose, but the print is so much more old-school legit. You embody the genuine need for speed!
