Post by: cutter67 on 04:15:25 PM / 18-Mar-12
i thought i would post this up and keep you guys informed on the car we are building for the 24hr Lemon race we should have it done in 3 weekends this weekend was gutting and prep work and mounting fuel cell. next weekend is rollcage we are buying one already made and we feel this will cut our build time by a lot and the third week end will be finishing details we feel doing the brakes turning motor up and a little wiring. here are some pics of the progress

this is what we started with

Yes and lots of pistons for the rotary. LOTS better yet. get them for a ka24de spec, pst for my address. :) lol j/k but it seems like this build is like a restoration race car, not a lemon car. :)

you have to put a cage in a lemon car and their cage spec will pass any tech inspection i know of. so we decided to build it in such away that we will be able to enter it in different races......i really want to run dirt oval in the 6cl. class with her
