Old fart on board?

Post by splitime on Tue Jan 20, 2009 11:32 am

So I am thinking that I'll be the oldest guy on here... hooray....

Dave
30
West suburbs of Chicago
2 cars of note:
1993 Mazda Miata-T - mostly finished. Splitter/brake ducting/more boost in the works.


1989 and 1992 240sx. Combining 2 240s into one. Rb20det powered in the end. Hopefully building within Grassroots Motorsports Challenge rules... ie: ~2k to build entire car. No rust shell hooray!
Donor car that has rust and wiring issues:


No more 89 though... managed to find a crusher/scrapper to take the shell. So now I can slowly begin to prep parts for the 92 build.

Yay cars!

RA is one of two local tracks I haven't hit yet (RA and Blackhawk farms). I wouldn't be surprised if I run out of gearing there from what I hear.

I've had it out on Autobahn North and Gingerman though. So far its fun... will be alot more fun this season with the changes I'll be finishing.

That front and back strech is pretty damn long. sure is fun though!

Designed with the room for a v6 that mazda never put in. Fits v8s nicely also...
