15th in the drag racing
17th overall out of 40 cars in the $2017 Challenge

Conclusion:

With almost 200,000 miles on the original engine and transmission, this 1993 Acura Integra GS-R certainly surprised us! We had so much fun and we will be returning to the $2018 Challenge. A surprising number of people told us how migraines have affected them and/or their loved ones. Those conversations cemented the fact that there is a place for a migraine awareness themed track car. The team is already busy planning modifications for next year’s event.

We are definitely going back for the $2018 Challenge but we'll be changing a LOT of things and running in the full-budget class. Our team is now 5 people strong and I have hunted down almost all of the parts -- including parts from @b17bdb2, @dpaton and @mutt8588 -- that we need. If you've been wanting to enter a $20xx Challenge, it's great fun and we highly recommend it!
