If you guys are going to VIR buy your tickets now 20 bucks for the 3 day use this code:GTL08

It is case sensitive so remember that.

Bump. Going home tonight to get this bad boy all ready for VIR I can't wait to get this thing up to speed and see what it can really do. We will hopefully have more videos after VIR for you to see. Thanks for the support everyone.

So we finally made it down to VIR. We got some practice laps in which were nothing special as we were both learning the track. I was black flagged while I was out there because we were burning oil.

We thought it was just an oil leak so we tightened up a few things and then went over to the dyno that is there to try and tune out some break up that we were having in the low RPM range. We figured out that we really had a bad head gasket but still managed to put down 260whp at 12 psi.

So the engine will be coming out for the winter to get refreshed (damn cometics gaskets) and will be back better than ever next year. We are also going to look at a new chassis today that should be a little straighter than the one we have now.

Pictures and video to follow soon.

To add to that, the new car was purchased today, better condition all around and the fabrication on this one is going to take a bit more time, but it will be worth it.

Keep an eye out for a custom cage designed to fit giants....

So are you guys going to sell the current chassis/cage (without a motor and whatnot)?

possibly, but I dont know who would want it, unless maybe as a starter car, because drifters cant get the camber they need, neither can the road racers, the only thing its good for is circle track. its actually perfect for it.

i think you have to have proof that the car cost less than $500 to run lemons, and even with all the work you guys did yourselves, and with a stock ka, i think youre in more than that

the car cost 600, swapping over everything from the new car to this old one plus the parts we sold, puts the car back at 500 plus safety, which includes brakes tires and cage, so yeah 500 is reasonable.

actually it was 400 with no rust anywhere besides right in front of the rear wheels, non structural. It runs and drives nicely, and still has plenty of power. I kinda feel bad cutting it up....

Hell yeah! That car looks in much better shape.

Sean, are the interior door panels slated for anything? I still need a door pocket for a driver side panel with grey interior

ooh!! much nicer looking, I feel bad about you cutting it up too It looks like there is some rust under spoiler, but that's pretty much a given. Hey, when you guys remove the front inner fender liners, can you collect all the attaching hardware (clips, plastic bolts, etc.) that attach to the liner, fender, and fenderwell? I want to reinstall liners on mine, but I do not have any of the attaching hardware. I'll send you $$ for them. Also, Can I get the windsheild washer fluid container, motor, and mounting brackets as well? More $$ for you And are you guys going to keep the stock overflow tank? This might turn into a F/S thread

This better not turn into a fs thread. I'm sure we'll start one up once we start stripping this one down.

But here is the new thread
