Blaze's SVT Vic, T5 and new seats, VIR open track

I have just finished quite a bit of work to my Vic and figured I'd post up the changes. I got some new Tan leather racing seats for the Vic, both front seats as I am require to do so for both me and the instructor. I also have converted to 5 a speed (T5) with a billet steel flywheel, king cobra clutch, and a Hurst short shifter with a long ass handle.

And 2 days after I finished converting it to manual I put everything to the test with a set of Hoosier slicks and a 200+ mile open track weekend at VIR! I drove over 300 miles to and from the VIR facility, and put over 200 miles on the track in two days. Everything went awesome, and as one spectator at the event said to me "You're out there making all these guys with their fancy cars look like a bunch of homos!"

Anyways, it's a ton of pics so instead of reposting them all over again. I have two links, my CarDomain which is now fully updated and my ride thread on GMN which has almost 3 posts of track pics.

Sweet! Looks good man. I'm jealous of the 5 spd.

It's just my nickname for it, based on that my father is a Senior Master Tech for FOMOCO and he started the project, and for the most part my upgrades are all using better factory parts. And it fits well on a license plate....and everyone in this junky world thinks that blaze has something to do with drugs which it in no way does.

Looking good as always, Blaze! Those HPP wheels look nice on there. Didn't you say that you use those on the track and your 17s on the street?

Btw, I had a dream last night that I saw your car sitting in a parking lot somewhere...there was brake dust on one of the front wheels lol

LOL, it was like that in real life for the past 2 months. One of my pads got hit with some power steering fluid when a line blew, and no longer worked well or made any dust. So only one side would get covered in brake dust.
