Help Me Build My Racecar
I know this may sound silly, but we've all dreamed once, and I've been stuck on this one for awhile, I want to be a race car driver. When I tell other people, I'm usually greeted with the standard reply, something along the lines of that being stupid, etc., and being told that my Pontiac is by no means a race car. While I agree, racing is not the sanest thing one can do, I just can't let go of people bad mouthing my car. For that reason, I want to build her up and push her to her absolute limit, where the car cannot give an extra inch. I will not be satisfied until she's parked on the side of a track in the grass, in flames. Only then will I say she served me well, pat her on the roof, and move on. But in order to get to that point, I will need help. My father flat out refused to help me build a car, so I'm reaching out to you guys (and girls)
First of all, for the sake of reliability, I want to keep it N/A. No fancy FI tricks for me. I want it to be street legal, so I can drive it to meets without the need of a flatbed truck. I want it to conform to regulations, like having a roll cage, racing seat/harness etc. I want it simple, so that I can take it to any independent garage to get it worked on, so no exotic parts. And of course, I want her to go fast.
My mods so far are simple enough:
-Injen CAI (that occasionally sets codes when it's her time of the month)
-TWM short-throw shifter
-FE5 shocks (not installed)
-Pedders springs (not installed)
So if you have anything you'd like to share, or add, or even question, don't hesitate to leave a comment, or PM me if you wish. Also, I wasn't sure which forum to post this in so I apologize if it's not in the appropriate one. Thank you for your time and insight, I really hope we can make something great. Cheers.
