HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 2:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.

I wonder what would happen if you drove this thing through Detroit on your way? They'd be all confused.

What engine do you have in here?

That is an amazing looking car by the way. I think the wing is growing on me after seeing pics of the rear end.

The engine is a '98 LS1 out of a Corvette. Running with the drive by wire setup - maybe that's why you can't readilly identify it. As for the wing - I think it was necessary with the hatch replacement that I chose. I don't like the rear without the wing - something appears to be missing. Maybe if I had used a different paint scheme it would be a little better.
I likened my garage to the Skunkworks responsible for the SR-71, the widebody kit, paint and wing sorta match that theme - I may put more gray accents on the car enhance the 'stealthy' theme.

Your car is a BEAST. Its right on the edge of being over the top. Turned out great. I can only imagine the time and work you put into that fine ride. Great job,keep the pics coming. What kind of HP are you getting to the road,it sounds good. And are you running adjustable coil-overs. Shocked

Skywalker001 Build - Got my new shoes - Page 4 Empty Next upgrade - Line Locks!

Post  skywalker01 on Mon Jun 10, 2013 4:45 am

Participated in the Tirerack/SCCA DC Pro Solo event for the first time ever. Didn't do as well as I liked but launching with the E-Brake isn't as easy as they make it look on The Fast and Furious. It was a 2 day event of which the first day really sucked because of my having butterflies (probably because of the whole 'National Event' thing). The next day (Sunday) was much better - was able to beat my personal competitor, a FF Type '65 Coupe - guess watching him coming out of the porta-john holding his nose showed me he was human. Also got a good look at his car, a fully prepped race car - in addition to the over-the-top engine, he had a transbrake and power steering (and here I thought he had superhuman powers). Had a great time though - if you ever get a chance to do a Pro Solo event I highly recommend going - upgrade your axles first though!!

Hood latches are mounted through the hood with provided screws. Got some threaded rod that matches the pins and welded them to the frame - Voila! Works fine, lasts a long time!
