    Notice there's at least two white GT350s in that pic. Both appear to be outfitted similarly with full roll cages, BBS wheels, hood pins, gutted interiors, tow hook, and Contis. Looks ready to race!

    I don't recall seeing heated front glass before on Grand Am cars. Anyone know if this is new for 2015? Seems like a great weight saver over hauling around blower/ducting. Racing in the rain sucks when you can't see.

    #15 has the NA rear view mirrors and #158 has the European rear view mirrors. Maybe evaluating which style would provide better visibility.

    Good catch. I usually call those side view mirrors but yeah, worth testing for sure.

    I really like how they paint matched the Wing and Fangs to the body. Now that looks extremely sinister.

    This is why I have been so partial to the black test mules.

    Their current cars have heated windshields, you only really notice them up close.

    It's funny, they are running the spec. sized tires that make them look like they're missing something…cause they are, like an inch or more of tire width than stock.

    Just noticed the 15 has white fangs and the 158 car has black fangs, cool!

    I really want those wheels. For some odd reason they look a bit smallish
