I had a ton of fun racing Formula Vees. 50hp isnt so bad when the car weighs 900 lbs. Faster than a spec Miata on the technical tracks.

I bet it would be faster if he took off those doughnut tires and got some real racecar rubbers.

mmmm Pantera. My highschool shop teacher restores those things. They are harder to fit into than a lotus... and start on fire just as easy as lambos. Hello ford V8 headers tucked in a tiny space. You also pretty much guaranteed have to push start the damn things cause the starters fry from heat in the engine bay.

My only comment was something along the lines of "would you want to check the dollar bills guys are throwing at you while you're taking your clothes off on stage?" If she keeps going the path she is, that'll be the only way she will ever make any money.

Took this today on US-71. Went blowing by it and almost didn't give a second look until I glanced in my mirror. Nearly locked up the brakes after seeing the hood...



Couple geezers..

That would actually make the car significantly slower because of the weight of the tires.

Also, friction is independent of surface area.

Ever driven a formula ford? Same wieght, 2x the powa. Which is slow compared to an atlantic, or F500. Open wheel cars ftw.

There was a girl I went to HS with who thought WW2 was in the 70's...
The part where your friends daughter thinks your dumb for asking is the part that troubles me, that sort of attitude is why we're behind the rest of the world in education. No more participation trophies, no more of this "everyone is a unique snowflake who can do anything they want" attitude, it's bringing us down.
