Post pics of your HPDE toy

You should put the original motor back in it, I don't think that anyone would ever see a smoke screen like that English cars can make.

It's nice to have something like that where you can just have an idea, and go do it without worrying about class rules.

To show you how equally screwy I am, I stumbled across a 1986 Jaguar XJ-S on Craigslist for $500 that (initially) seems like it would be fun to throw around a track with an LS1 under the hood and every unnecessary part in a dumpster. lol

Most of the necessary ones belong in the dumpster, too. lol The English word for Garbage is "Lucas".

Welcome wrecked. I too am new to the forum; however, not new to the sport. IMHO, videos of excavation of speed and reckless driving on public roads do not belong in a HDPE forum. It just doesn’t follow the spirit of the forum or the sport for that matter.

 

By the way your Civic is a perfect start off point.

+1 I would save that stuff for the Honda forums, they might like it.

Ummmm yeah...fortunately, HPDE will likely cure you of documenting tuner-boi neighborhood flybys.

 

Also, resist the urge to modify your car too much before your abilities outgrow the existing car setup.

Let us know what insurance company you plan on going with, I would be interested to see if they even insure you.

Because you've never owned a Viper. It's a car that is in a constant state of wanting to rip your face off. The last young guy I knew to have a viper also had a clean record, and he only got in one wreck with the Viper after he got it..... at about 160mph. Lucky to be alive, though he's got a limp to remind him.

 

When the power is there, it's too tempting not to use it and too addictive once you've started. They know this, and they probably won't want your risk. If they do, they'll charge you more than the car costs... I'm not kidding about that.

Why get rid of your Civic? You could learn so much in that car. Just don't go crazy on the modifications, and spend most of your money on seat time.

Yeah, I'm sure he has you down for secondary driver. Call up your agent and see how much it would be for just you on the car under your own name. Then let me know how affordable it is.

My father and I share a Panoz GTRA. The car came from Sebring and was a Penske fleet car, hence the cool paintjob vs. being all white. It was purchased in October 2007 due to the desire to move into a race car w/ a full cage vs. the C5Z06s we'd been driving (each have our own). We ran 1 event in 2007 and 4 in 2008... the car is very robust and handles/stops great, but it was a real slug on the straights esp at VIR which is our home track.

 

Car is prep'd around NASA ST2 rules... I hope to compete in 2010.

Stock 5.slow... it was much uglier when we got it. I tuned it up and painted some parts.

Post AFR heads, Ed Curtis cam, and carb swap w/ a Pro-Stystems setup.

Before/after dyno comparison... now it'll do more than look and sound fast

Good stuff, I saw it up at PAS once. The "after" dyno numbers look particularly fun. How much does it weigh?

Going to run VIR Grand East w/ Mazdadrivers in a few weeks, then VIR full w/ them again in August, then who knows, then eventually Synergy Racing's fall fling. I do want to figure out what TT class this car falls into now and run some of those then eventually go to comp school and run ST2 next year.

Don't want Dan to feel like the only Audi represented here! Just one NASA event under the belt (HPDE2) -- hope to do many more!

 

My two at Willow Springs...

2001.5 Audi S4, 6spd, lots of upgrades
