Had the Mota back to WH with an added 4" of track on the back axle and rear camber now at -3 degrees. HUGE difference in the stability of the rear and it is now perfectly balanced with the new K-Sport front struts. It was a joy to drive and runs consistent low 1:48s on practice tires.

I am now planning on installing the 2.3L turbo engine into the car this fall/winter from my silver Focus. :shock:

Although it's fun with 131whp...putting in the 325whp powerplant should really liven things up on the straight-aways... :wink:
