A Sad Story

Went to Prep the car for season finals.

11/10/2018 Limerock Park

Got permission from wife to go enjoy the track .

oil and all the fluids changed -- check
Tire tread - check
Splitter - check, wing angel - check, tune - check

went to do my alignment the day before to make sure everything is perfect......

camber bolt striped

no Mazda or Fiat Dealership has this part in whole of USA....

I am sad.

I guess it's going to be next year than.

That sucks. But I'd like to see some more pics of your car. It looks really good. Do you have a hard top on it?

@klikai
What suspension are you running now that you have that nice wing and splitter pushing you into the pavement?
By the way looks great.

It could be my imagination, but I notice that the chassis nuts and bolts seem to be a softer metal than I am used to, and thus strip more easily. Sorry this happened to you, I know it's sad when you miss an event, especially the last one of the year.
