Botoneta Racing in Guatemala runs a VQ sedan and wagon. Wild cars! It sounds like they built the front end around their VQ donor’s engine bay. https://www.facebook.com/BotonetaRT/

Re: 2017 SCCA RunOffs

Several 510s hope to make the show as well -- Dave Patten in F Production, Roger Welling and Alex Burnett in HP, plus a group of 240Z's in EP.

Re: CV Failure

In "How to Modify...", BRE had similar problems with U-joints, but they were being pushed to the extreme. Surprising CVs aren't working better.

510 on the podium! Ermish takes second to unbeatable Huffaker and his mutant Mini. Great start for Troy, good early laps.
