  1. budget rear suspension for 300hp?

    Should be close. If you get real energetic, you can swap out the 4.10 pumpkin for a 97-ish Kia Sportage front third member and upgrade to 4.71's I have a complete rear IRS from the supra already out of the car, and two others still in cars. The one you took the shocks/trans out of has the adjustable spring perches in it. Shoot me a text and we can discuss further. It won't be much.
  2. budget rear suspension for 300hp?

    A solid axle will be your best bet on a budget...both in dollars and time. A first gen RX7 rear axle would also be a Good swap with LSD and 4:10's out of the box. Correct bolt pattern too! (GSL-SE) For IRS, I'd suggest a MK2 supra rear setup. It's a simple mount and should be close in width. 4:30's and LSD standard equip on P-Type manuals. Not to mention I know where you can find both of those!
  3. BN 255-40-17 Tires and 17x9 Wheels

    added rims to the thread...
  4. BN 255-40-17 Tires and 17x9 Wheels

    Well, you could have them on your shelf in case that miracle happens!
  5. BN 255-40-17 Tires and 17x9 Wheels

    four brand new, never mounted tires. 255-40-17 Nankang NSII-R (120tw) Purchased June 2017. $550 takes all four tires! Changed rim sizes and these won’t work for me anymore. Speaking of rims... Four brand new never used/mounted Konig Integram Wheels. Three of the four are still factory sealed. 17x9 +42 5x100 $650 for all four wheels.
  6. Looking for 13B

    I have a decent 6-port "keg" and a fully built, never fired, 4-port "keg". PM me if interested.
  7. Update: The school is now sold out and a waitlist has started!
  8. Volunteers Needed for 2018 HPDE

    Just a reminder for folks that we need workers and instructors for this year's school. If you know of someone who wants to come and help but haven't signed up yet or doesn't know where to, please pass the link along and have them register! Instructors: we will most surely sell out and we still need a few more instructors to fill the quota. We also need instructors to sign up prior to end of March so we can order shirts!!
  9. Updated spots remaining! (4)
  10. Helmet

    Yes, and Speed factor is a club sponsor as well.
  11. 2018 Ice Racing Registration Links

    Just a reminder that events 4 and 5 are up for registration!
  12. #17 RaceTrix was/is a PTF car as built. No changes required. This decision should work out nicely for others who want to join in.
  13. 2018 Ice Racing Registration Links

    Event 2 and 3 are up on MSR for your registration pleasure.
  14. Lighter...not always. In my case, carbon bits were/are the only answer. Cheapest way to get your lap times down is seat time! Your comment adds to the suggestion of why not a PTF class rather than PTE? Get your cage, seat and switch and come racing! Look forward to seeing you out there.
  15. I take my previous post back. My car is posted somewhere on here in another thread. I think in the spotlight forum. Perhaps you might understand why it's not easy for it to fit in. Ultimately, the result of the vote will make me decide to continue in PTE or not, and I know I'm not the only one.
