correct me if im wrong but the sr20de is a 4 cylinder. it says u have to run a 2? or is that just a typo?FlatBlackIan wrote:My Plans
Since Im sure many of you will ask, Im going to lay out my plans right away.
This car is being prepared to run in the Rally-America performance rally series. I will mainly be competing in the Midwest event.
I am building the car to fit into Group 2. This means a low displacement 2 cylinder engine, driving only 2 wheels.
Right now, a cage is first on the list. Once that is done, I will be looking for a set of FIA spec seats, and an engine. For the engine, I intend to run an NA SR20DE.
The suspension is still up in the air. The control arms will remain stock, but I have to find a set of coilovers to fit my needs. Something soft enough to suck up major rocks, and give me decent grip on gravel, while stiff enough to stay off the bump stops over jumps, crests, kicks, and the like. Im looking at Hotbits, or possibly Leda's.
Thats it for tonight.

Yes that is another option. Either Koni's or Bilstiens are in the running. For the same price I could have 2 full sets of custom valved dampers, and a couple sets of springs. With a little creative swapping I could have an extremely versatile suspension.the_momo wrote:Have you thought about doing a set of custom valved koni yellows and gc's with a soft spring? That might be a inexpensive way to get a custom tailored suspension.
Just a thought. also love the idea. Cant wait to see this in action. Ive been contemplating on doing something similar with my golf once its daily services are no longer required.
Good luck sir!

Ive also thought maybe an inboard pushbar style suspension (at least for the rear) would be rather effective for rally, being that it helps shift some unsprung weight to a more central location, as well as provides a marginal bit of protection to your rear suspension.FlatBlackIan wrote:

Its a good idea in theory, but not a viable one for me. For my class, all suspension mounting points must remain in the factory postions. No pushrod, rosebud, or remote systems. Not to mention the cost. Im going for a budget build. The most important thing to me, is getting the car log booked, and competition ready.the_momo wrote:

I would also say that given the myriad of different products that qa1 makes you could probably get a few different systems to suit your needs that you can change and tune without even removing the wheels. If it were easier to do for the front i would say this would be the ticket.
you could probably even get some extra suspension travel without having to raise the car a ridiculous amount, via different mounting points on your bellcranks.
Just a thought.
