I don't know the car's setup, but things you talked about is not high end, not even close.
if the car never had a roll bar, means it never been tracked. something always break when you push it to the limit.
sorry if I offended you, just don't want to see the owner blow it up at session 2.
Something can always break on even a new car.......Especially something on a 20 yr old car.
I didn't road track it, but I did drive it for two years. And beat the devil out of it at the drag strip weekly. I just swapped in a 1.8 rear end too. New happy meal clutch and fly wheel. I'm not a moron that pays too much just to get a small edge.
But the car is set up to the full potential of the stock motor and tranny.
And not everything was listed. But all was name brand.
Anyone that races knows something will break from time to time. But that car is prepared very well.
I'm getting to the point. It is extremely dependable and he doesnt relize what he got. Or how expensive it was to build.
I owned it and built it. I'm trying to help him not listen to some of the morons in Dallas that don't know there head from their butt. They repeat everything they hear.
...... Nothing has been listed of what is on that car in this thread. Your talking blind
. Most used cars need alot, but this one doesn't. I used to drive this car 9 hrs to NE Arkansas.
Yea, there some guys who build a straight race cars. This car is a maxed out stock motor and tranny. There is better, no doubt. But there is also personal preferance.
This car wasn't built for strictly race, it can be driven 2000 miles on vacaton. It was planned to accomodate both worlds, mainly street and the drag strip. I had shocks and other parts to finish.... But that guy bought it and I sold parts to recoop cost.
Point, its depenable.
Not being a dick.......But I'm a great mechanic and everything I drive is very dependable. As with any turbo car you have to watch your temps while racing, take it easy first time out, and watch your tune. Good advice.
But honestly, that is all he needs for weekend sport and fun.
I'm just getting at, why waste money on things that don't give you much of a gain. And don't fix what isn't broke.
No I'm not in love with the car...I'm in love with my 5'6 Strawberry Red Head!!!!!....hahahaa
Tried to post picture....She stopped me......hahhaha
