Watch the Formula 3 slicks!and the camshaft housings were modified due to excessive wear. The crankshaft was lightened and balanced as well as the conrods, it is fitted with forged pistons and has racing valves. Nahuel makes use of special camshafts.

Nahuel uses Bridgestone slicks from a Formula 3 racer. This new suspension layout gives the Sprint a very sharp handling. As usual in a racing car, all the trim of the interior has been removed and a full roll cage was fitted. A Momo racing seat was fitted, too.
Nahuel added some gauges to have a better control of the engine functions. The car now has two water
