    In it's second race ever, Torchmate Racing's #4413 is coming off a 4th place finish at the 2011 BITD Silver State 300, and is in prep for Pike's Peak Hill climb June 26th.

    SS300 Recap: We had an excellent race up until pit 2 where the car came in with a bent steering swinger causing a fairly large toe out and dive situation. For the rest of the race the car ran with the front suspension compressedand a rear brake linefailure caused front only and eventually no brakes by pit 4. Rather than wasting anymore time in pit 4 JT decided it would be best to push on after arriving in the pit 3rd in class and losing two positionswhile we were trying to gain some pedal in the brakes back. He went on to hit 111 mph with no brakes and finish the race 4th in class.

    Below are some pictures and a video compilation with some in-car footage of the race.

    IMO the best build thread to date on this forum.
