Ouch, thats painful.
Live and learn I suppose...Im also interested what that aluminum one you just finished sounds like.
I wouldnt worry so much about what the welds look like, as long as it holds...At least for that part. The only time someones going to see it is if you flip your car on the track, and I dont think that someone pointing out your welds would bother you more than other things at the same moment...just my .02.
Nice weight drop though...definitely a good way to pick up your time.

Well, gained 2 mph!!!!! Lost et, but that was because the track was cold, I launched low rpm and bogged, my 60' was horrendous @ 1.62. Im stoked, problem is I broke My transmission right after. Tired to do back to back runs vs open headers, but she broke...
While loud, they did quiet the car considerably in car and out..
