That's an excellent question. If I didn't harbor a dream of actually
competing in this car, then I would just make one out of Lexan. The problem
is that there are very few sanctioning bodies that allow a Lexan windshield.
As far as I can tell SCCA, NASA, and Rally America all require glass
windshields. As a data point, I think that FIA requires glass for WRC, too.
I did notice that World Challenge cars can have Lexan windshields, but
uh...I don't have any plans to compete with them. ;-)
The reality is that I still don't really know what I will do with my car.
Most likely it will just be used for HPDE and RallyCross. But as unlikely as
it may be, I still have a dream to do some stage rally someday and I will
need a glass windshield to do it.
Since we are on the subject, we just finished installing the Lexan hatch
"glass" on Wednesday. I'll take pictures and post them up. It came out

Isn't your car "track only"? Why not get one made out of Lexan? That's my
plan when mine gets too chipped, or cracks.
