Why can't race cars be pretty? :eek:

It's been an interesting journey over the course of two years. The story? Well, it's of friends, hard work, a passion (ok,more of a mental illness), having a budget and then throwing it away... Typical, right?

https://speedracer.ca/gallery2/var/resizes/public/News/Press1/IMG_3466a.jpg

On May 7, 2006 was our first test round of abuse. Over six hours of continuous wide open throtle the car is still running strong. The car in the mean time has seen a over 14+ hours of abusive track time.

Haven't really had time. Although, the setup is pretty crappy for drag.

As well, it's tuned for longeivity. It must last 2 hour endurances (which is very hard on any car) - so far it has :thumbsup:

uhh you have 15x6.5,15x7 and i only see volk te37s, so maybe they arent staggered but fatter in the back??

pretty sure he meant 2 sets of wheels. 1 set of 4- 15x7 and 1 set of 4-15x6.5

I thought you were refering to the pictures.. TE37 do not come in 15x6.5 ;)

On that note we can run a staggered setup at the track. That's all I will say.

The wheels themselves are info only. We have many sets of wheels due to the nature of the hobby.

You re-pin all the pin outs so that they work - Signals, Defrost, Hazards... (not fun to do but makes electrical tracing issues a snap since it's not hacked)

I'll start posting some updates on the ACR status. EG has taken up a lot more time than expected.

o added Crane #18 and some up keeping
o Mopar clutch - after 124K of abuse the clutch finally packed it in
