  1. Today
  2. Hey guys, On Friday a good friend and I started a project we had been planning since My wife and I moved to our new place. I had to pull the car cover off of my 1972 parts car to move it to the new shop on our new property. I was out side looking at the parts car thought how about a low budget autocross car. I texted my friend and said "how about a race car out of my parts car". His reply: "Then we need to put a 302 into it" He is a ford mechanic. I said sounds good. So for the last couple of months we have been talking different ideas for the build, but each having our own car and truck projects already (he is building a 1951 Merc grain truck onto a newer f250 truck frame with its motor and suspension making a tonne of hp) never had time to actually do anything with our race car. He had a wrecked 2015 Ecoboost Mustang write off he bought. He was going to put all the 2015 mustang Goodies into his Fox Body Mustang. One day he said if our race car was 1600 lbs and we threw all the eco boost stuff into it it would be a riot! and so it began. The car is a budget build so cosmetics are not a priority. If it makes it fast on a budget then it is a winner for the car. This means using what we can find for free or cheap or repurposing stuff we have. The rough dead line for this build is not this summer but next summer where we can put more time in to the build next winter. So updates are going to be a while for one to the next. I had to smile at how light the car is. We could literally slide it side ways in the garage by lifting it with our hands and sliding it over no floor jack needed. I could not stop smiling on Friday while we were working on the car! Here is the Part one of this build: https://youtu.be/B1XMEgRqf4A Thanks for checking out our build.
  3. Cheap to free eg civic parts

    How much for the hood pins? You said fart cannon also? what about wheels and tires?
  4. awesome I will be looking here for updates.
  5. Yesterday
  6. an expensive winter. Just got the parts dropped off by Fedex today to fix the right rear suspension. Into that for $900+ already, and haven't bought the CV joints yet. Not even sure they're damaged, but plan to replace them anyway. The upgrade won't hurt as the right side takes all the high loads anyway. And those old Volkswagen parts can't be that expensive. lol Also got a new 6 point 'HANS friendly' harness for $400+ this week. And still thinking about buying some newer 'used' slicks for this year. (ran all last year on used ones installed 2 years ago) The price we pay to go fast, huh.
  7. I’ve bought multiple sets. Super comparable to Azenis. I’ve replaced them after one race. I’ve also used them for a second event. The value for the price is hard to beat considering what happens to them out at GMP.
  8. For those who have used these before, how many did you go thru in a season?
  9. Last week
  10. Anything for 2018

    Hey @Knelsen_204 check out this thread
  11. Anything for 2018

    Hey ppl. Is their any drift events or practice going on this year?
  12. Yes Don I personally wouldn’t support any formal written rule for this.
  13. PTF Spec Tire Discussion

    Sure I am all for it! But can we have an answer before the Westlake RS order deadline? Or extend the order deadline? Also, since we voted on running PTF we can't really restrict tire choices beyond what's legal in PTF, or we are back to creating a club class again. It would have to be more of a gentleman's agreement to run a spec tire in PTF but I believe we are capable of that among the PTF civics. Not to imply that non-civic drivers are not gentlemen, but some of them may want to use a different tire to help catch up to the civics. I propose civics running in PTF should voluntarily choose the 195 50 15 westlake RS.
  14. There is a group of racers who have brought up wanting to discuss a possible spec tire, max treadwear or illegal tire agreement for 2018. How do we feel as a group on this issue?
  15. $110 for the Westlake Thats $50 cheaper than local 2018 pricing on Azenis.
  16. Westlake RS 195 50 R15

    What's the price on 195 50 15? It was very good last year! Hope it's just as good or better. Thanks - Don
  17. Hey guys I’ve been tasked with making sure our supplier brings in enough tires for our season. Most likely they will only do one shipment and it takes about three months. I have a short window to confirm a number with them before they send them on the boat. I’ll be reaching out to some of you who I think may be using them this year. If you think you’re going to want some please PM me so we can reserve some for you. We need to know by Monday February 26th. Thanks!
  18. The current floor plan is oversold. The organizers are trying to expand their booking.
  19. Write off ratio

    I’ve been told it’s 60 - 75%. It’s adjuster and vehicle dependant. If it’s something the adjuster has had flagged to “rid the system of” like cars with rust or high risk cars they may flush them. My 99 corolla was at 65% and they wouldn’t write it off unless I took a lower payout, to bring mpi’s loss value down, which I opted to at the time.
