    He mentions an article discussing the PHB vs Watts link . . . did that ever happen?


    I do have to pick one rather minor nit here - 92.2 bore x 92.7 stroke is undersquare, not oversquare. But he's not the first (younger) person to get the two terms confused.

    Billy Johnson has actually raced S197s professionally in the Continental Tire Challenge. For W2W racing you would definitely weld in a cage and more reinforcement. But I believe the point of this project is to make a budget track day car, which doesn't really need it.

    Kinda missed my point there. It was a reference to one lenghty "discussion" on here. Iol

    A cage for safety, absolutely. I dont have a cage in mine. I know I should though. Just to have a good mounting point for a 5 point.. but I digress...
