Exclamation First 6 Speed Autocross Test

Well, not much more to say here. I got beat by being to conservative...again lol. We kinda knew already, but this gearbox desperately needs an LSD, I wanted to be sure the C60 swap would work before spending $1000 on a LSD. Oh boy its was tough going back to an open diff, aside from that the car handled amazingly!
