help us design the James Boswell race paint job!

14 December 2017 - 09:33 PM

We thought it would be fun to have you guys help us design a paint job for our racecar!   It needs to be multi color including our company colors which are navy blue and pink other colors are welcomed.  Carter doesn't like pink so don't get to carried away with it if you want to see your paint job on the car.

"Swamp thing" JBC enduro car!

24 November 2017 - 05:03 PM

Event: 

 

Here is the event we hope to participate in.   http://evergreenspee...nowball-enduro/

 

 

 

Drivers:

 

Me (Icehouse)

Carter 

Sam 

 

 

 

Car:

 

The car needs to be stock aka anything you could get on the car through it's production run.  We are still going to be in the back since the popular car seems to be the Acura Integra.  We are going to run the 4.3 gears out of Carters "Granny" with a SSS L18 with SU's.  I think that should help.  The car has to run 60 series tread wear 400+ tires which can't cost over 60 each new. 

 

I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff, we will update you as the progress unfolds.

What does it weigh?

02 November 2017 - 10:13 PM

Lately I've been dreaming of building a Lucky Dog racecar.  There rules allow you to build basically anything.   While doing some research into different engines I ran across a thread comparing a SR20DET to a VQ35 and LS of coarse   .  The take home message was "go LS" which I don't want to do.  I did find it interesting however they said the VQ and SR were within LBS of each other.  This weekend I plan on double checking them.  I borrowed a calibrated load cell from work and machined an adapter for it.  I did a test measure and the Single Cam KA with all accessories, starter, flywheel, exhaust manifold and clutch weights more then the other forum said the VQ weighted.  I plan on measure them all in the same configuration.  Since I could run whatever trans on whatever engine if I really wanted to.  Here some pictures because reading sucks.

Is it possible to mix and match gears in a 71C trans?

11 May 2017 - 07:41 AM

I would like to make a close ratio gear box for autoxing.   Seems the secondary gears are cast onto the shaft?  Well a boy can dream about a race gear box.
