- It is driving!
- I drove the car for the first time, at parking lot speeds, which was quite satisfying. The brakes are not up to the task of any higher speeds yet and and the engine isn’t tuned so I hope to get both of those solved soon and get a real driving evaluation of the car in.
- I actually managed to install my NC Miata master cylinder. Fit is extremely tight and my plan is to see how this setup works and replace with a RHD NC Miata master if I like it and decide to keep it.
- However…brakes currently feel like mush and I hope it’s only because I did not do the most thorough bleeding job. They are barely functional at the bottom of the travel of the pedal.
- Georgia Tech Auto Show
- I brought the car to its first auto show a Georgia Tech. Got tons of questions, met a couple other FFR owners, and besides getting covered in pollen everything survived the trip :). It was a good photo opportunity for this stage of the build.
- Tiny website update: Google Sites now lets you map a custom URL without forwarding. Good option if anyone is looking for a cheap way to build a simple website. This plus Blogger has ended up being a very good and simple way for me to document the whole build. I pay just $12 a year for the domain with no other costs.
Parked with very different but fellow Subaru-powered vehicles
This little guy was a fan. Needed a cushion to see over though…
No idea what this is but it was the show promotional car.
GT construction crews didn’t want to miss out
Ready for a trip to Atlanta
NC master installed with some very tight brake bends
