NB for sale has these frame braces. Looks like the car is getting passed on tech by local NASA region, but would this pass strictly? Would hate to buy a car with a constant tech worry.

This would NOT pass tech anywhere tech was actually inspecting or it was protested

Thank you sir. Awful good price for a 99 :( oh well. Plenty of 1.8NA options and im just a regional guy so no worries that it's the worst car...

What’s your time worth? The rails are available. Unbolt those things, remove and replace the factory rails.

Appreciate any advice. Head has been replaced, potentially a stock head, after overheating issues.

I think we built that car 12-13 years ago? 

I sold it as is 12-18 months ago 

It had been hit pretty good some time after Blake sold it.

Brings back memories, I saw that car go by once as I was reentering perpendicular to the track between turn 2 and 3 at TWS.  The owner came over and told me he thought the world of my skills and that I might someday be able to win.

Aww... Now I'm sad about TWS, again.
