Re: finally caved

95 - I think that the 99 would have been a slightly better choice but for my first one that is going to remain steetable this one will be fine for what I am trying to use it for. The car appears to be very rust free but has some cosmetic issues (I am going to hit cones with it anyway).

finally caved

I put a deposit on a Miata tonight. It will be my backup car next year. I will make the appropriate changes to it this winter (it is completely stock now). The initial plan is to keep it street-able (drive it to work in the summer). The first thing that I need to do is decide whether I want to try a...

Re: World's Greatest Drag Race

I also saw the Nissan evaluated in a new top gear episode last night (the real top gear). It did very well.

Re: Pictures from WGI Vintage

That is really two engines ganged together. That guy was driving that thing fast (it was out at the front of group 1 without a rollbar). He was leaning into of the turns like they used to do back in the day. It was very impressive machine for the day (beautiful construction).

Re: Vintage at WGI

I know that it is probably better not to drive your car to an event that far away but this year I have no choice. Wow is that going to be a long drive. I am going to stick a ham radio in my car and also get some books on tape. Hopefully that will hold my attention.

Re: Vintage at WGI

Yes. I will be there. My cell: 508-574-2201.

I also meant to go to Lime Rock on the way but I have not left yet because I could not complete preparing my car for WGI in time.

Re: planning for race track overload this fall + midget project

Here are some pictures: http://www.pangalacticconsortium.com/temp/hoop/ One of the pictures shows driver with foot on brake (knee is at highest then). The driver seat could probably be lowered another inch if the steering wheel were smaller (which it will be). The passenger seat is slightly lower th...

Re: planning for race track overload this fall + midget project

I will get these pictures. The harness also has two anti-sub straps.
I definately don't want the car to be less safe with the roll bars than without it. ;)

Re: planning for race track overload this fall + midget project

Mark,
I did not quite understand your comment:
"Those rear legs on the fabbed unit are odd,that they take a bend before the mounting plate... "

The rear legs do indeed take an odd bend, however, they are welded to the middle of the mouting plate.
I did not understand exactly what you meant.

Re: planning for race track overload this fall + midget project

regarding the question about whether 4 point bracing is required for vintage racing. For my class the answer is no. SCCA roll bar is all that is required but they consider that to be the minimum. Most of the cars that I have studied have bracing front and aft. In euroupe most of them seem to have co...

Re: planning for race track overload this fall + midget project

Chris and everybody else, Thanks for your comments. I am grateful that someone with your experience can give some feedback. I have previously discussed both of the issues that you brought up with my fabricator. Regarding the hoop under the rollbar instead of over: The dash panel on this car is barel...
