Good thing I didn't put that CAI on the car.... I can't make more than 370 rwhp baed on mhy calculations : 3118/370 = 8.43.

Not bad for a darned near stock 2001 w/ almost 120k on her.
That is strong for a 2001.
Your less then 3118lbs though right ? I thought you said 2800lbs ish...

Weight - 2840 (1/2 tank of gas), so about 250lbs lighter than a stock car w/ a 1/2 tank.Cross-weight 50.3%

Guys minimum competition weight is the car's weight just as it comes off track.... so the car + whatever fuel is left, plus you in the car. When you come off track you can't weight less than 3118lbs. So 2840 w/ about 1/2 tank plus me w/ my stuff on = 240 = 3080 which means I need to run a full tank to make weight. Figure 8 gallons of fuel to top it off @ 6.6 lbs per gallon = 46.2 lbs = 3126.2. So I'll probably need to add some ballast back to give myself a margin of error. The car really needs to be 3120 w/ 1/2 tank of gas.

Looks Good; have fun and be safe. Is the plate for show or is it still street legal?

Skipped last session...made it mostly home and LOST FRONT BRAKING... Pads were "toast". Good thing I didn't try to stay ! Remember i said I lost it on the last lap before the Roller Coaster as the brakes were funny and I was too hot getting in ? Damn Close

I registered it for 2 years w/ the plates from my old yellow Z06 so the plates and registration are legal. However, the car has no inspection sticker and won't. I only drive it on the street around my house to bed in brakes and check for leakes etc. after wrenching on it. The only thing that it doesn't have that it needs is a horn. It has blinkers, headlights, and still has cats and everything.

I think it's for lap times, but I could be wrong.

It's for the standardized lap timing system. I have a Traqmate which is a GPS based data acquisition system that does all kinds of things, but for official NASA timing/scoring you have to have an AMB transponder. Normally they rent them for $75/weekend and they're rechargable units. This is permanent and direct wiired to 12V switched power.
