I am looking for a better window switch option than the OEM. I think I have found a couple of rocker switches that will work. I am going to move the fire pulls back to the rollbar then add a on off on switch with two LED's one for transbrake and one for lineloc. Plumcrazy turned me on to the setup. With the switch, the LED will indicate which one is active for the shifter button.



















The black material is ABS. Once I get the panels and switches right I will replace them with actual carbon fiber like I have with the current switch. Would love to hear suggestions.

Taken about a week to figure out the throttle stuff. I turned the TB 90 degrees and made a bracket to run it in from the side. Took some monkeying around to get it where it would give me 100% but I think I am there.

Went from this





To this



Had to douche the return spring, still working on that one. So afterwards took her out for a spin. Not inspected so tried to keep it reasonable.

Did a short launch, nothing spectacular

Couple of short Romps

Ran into a C6 playing with a 335i. Just didn't want to hit it in the neighborhood. The 335i slowed down looked and waved. The vette seemed in a hurry to get away. Some day soon my friend.

I have certainly appreciated your support through the last few years. Once I get a pass I am going to get the hood on it, probably do a complete GForce1320 cradle rebuild then calm down with it.

We've had a good run with the Whipple but have decided to go in a different direction. I posted a new thread in Forced Induction that will talk to the new build, once we get it sorted and moving forward. This is pretty much the end of this thread.
