Less than a week to go for the State Patrol VIN inspection and I've been getting more familiar with Eggsy. The Autocross was a great way to learn to drive and shake-down the rust from all those years of storage. I've entered into another event in Bremerton on Monday and have been making Eggsy more reliable and race-ready. It was nice to see Al from Chelan in another Birkin and I'm copying a couple things I saw on his car.  First was to remove the spare tire for several lbs savings then I drilled new holes in the steering arm to quicken it up, new fuel filter to hopefully help a left-turn starvation feel and replaced the 15 year-old Avon tires with a new set from Toyo.

As I recall, from my few years of owning a '09 Birkin, it was supposed to enhance handling to have the suspension set for about an inch of rake. Having multiple breathers on the engine was needed for hard track work, as was having a trap-door added to the otherwise track competent Raceline wet sump. I blew an engine due to oil starvation and then learned of the necessity of this mod for heavy track use. Probably not needed for auto-X?

Getting a State Patrol appointment for VIN inspection is a real nuisance with the Covid delays these days but finally got it done. They have deemed Eggsy to be Yr Make: 2003 KitV, Model: 1964 Lotus. Weird that they took off the Birkin make and I think it looks more like a 67 but I'm not complaining...not a word about bumpers or high-mounted brake lights.
Thankful that the hoops weren't as bad as many that I read about here. Happy to have it all legally transferred and registered.
