the old chump faces car is for sale. 
 

 the trophies do not come with it. But you can earn your own. 
 

Any serious parties can message me and I will put you in contact with the car owner. 

I want to buy it just to figure out what springs / dampers / etc. they had... that car handled great!

Yeah I want to know how they are claiming 2200lbs.  Looking at the pictures I don't see it.

Ya, without going to CF / S-glass body panels that is a bit tricky to get to.

ok, i guess, if you really really gut everything, cut off stuff like the door window frame, do S-Glass for door panels, hood, trunk, and sunroof cover...also cut out the rear seat area back panel (but that means you have to go fuel cell with internal surge tank and wall that off, so like net 50% weight reduction for that panel).....then maybe?

Now who could that be? Must be a pretty awesome team to get that light. Bunch of chumps for sure.  

well, it wasn't you!  It was a two car team...  Your team didn't tech at this race.

 

And, as Jeff said, I believe you had some "forgotten" ballast when your car went over the scale the following year......

Oh was that 2019? I know we scaled once at Road America.
