Great First Competition Day for the Budget Racer!
Almost 100 Competitors...and an NC with a $458 junkyard motor was fastest thing with doors! It was the fastest thing with AC, the fastest thing with a stereo, a roof, air bags, etc. Beat all the Vettes, the various Porsche choices, the turbo Catfish, the Ferarri, lots of expensive stuff. Super proud of this Budget NC, such an amazing car for the money!
We had Top Time of Day until the very last run of a formula car on fresh HOOSIER slicks (pic below), and he only got us by a few tenths of a second. We are on Rival street tires, give us a set of Hoosiers and we could have gone about 1.5 seconds faster on this long course in my experience on this surface. Not bad at all for a budget project that got built super fast and no test/tune to dial in the setup. Full report on the coilovers and how the other bits worked tomorrow.
