Good news bad news kind of day... We know we have the 2015 to use until the end of the year, so Indy is a go. However, we know after Dec 2017 this tub goes to the crusher. Nice I don't have to wonder when the call is going to come, and I know it wont interrupt the season, but will be sad to see it go.

What determines how long you can use a chassis?

The Feds. A preproduction car can only be here for a limited number of years before it has to be shipped back to its country of origin or crushed. Standard is three years, you can get waivers that allow for two additional years. This chassis has been here since 2014, so we are already into a waiver to get the 2017 season out of it. And with changes on the way for 2018 no reason to keep this car on the books.

Very interesting, thanks.

If I may ask, are you sticking with the Yaris platform thereafter?

Subscribed to your youtube last night and enjoyed a good hour of your vids, Jason. Can't wait to watch more and see the new seasons as well. Thanks for sharing them!

Hope you continue with the new platform next year, but I do understand taking a break. Love to see your progress and the amount of TV time you get with that bulky yaris with the crx's and sprites

The part you dont see is one of the cars that was behind me hitting him as he sat in the middle of the track.

Is it actually built or is it just a stock motor with and side mount turbo?

99% sure its a stock motor with a turbo tossed in for looks. From what I gather this was not supposed to be on there, could be the reason nearly every SEMA release has the hood down, and never makes mention of the turbo.
