    Default Holy crap, a car video! - 3 hours dirt race with $300 cars (I won)



    This is my 3rd season driving. We had a TDI golf in 2018. In 2019, I came better prepared with a Subaru Justy. 13" tires. Awd. Super light. Dead reliable, although we had no alternator belt for the last 90 minutes.

    I was able to keep the car, and am coming up with a new theme for 2020. Any ideas, let's hear em.
    I'd love to put some ATV/UTV tires on, for 2020. I'm open to ideas, for more traction.

    Wow Graham, When I sold you this little beastie I told yah it was reliable... Glad it proved it's worth for you, I think you should widen those 12 inch rims I sold you with the car and mount those ATV tires on it but you are gonna have to space them out a bunch to clear the rear trailing links. I have some atv tires for sale cheap....

    I asked my Sawzall, it says you can fit those ATV tires.

    If the winner is determined based off ODO readings, i dont think you want more grip, spinning tires are adding km's

    those atv tires would probably be hard on the drivetrain.

    It's not the size that matters, it's the taste it leaves in your mouth.

    The miles are logged with GPS in each car, to determine the winner.

    In 2020, we raced the Justy again. We didn't win most laps. It was -30C and the ground was frozen. A fwd focus with studded winters took that prize.
    We did win the best-passing award, after we got pit-maneuvered, causing us to drive backwards. I put it in reverse, cranked the week and gave 'er the beans to get us facing forward again without stopping. Luckily, we had a judge in the car during that maneuver, which helped earn us the best-passing award, among some other fancy driving.

    The car ran great. Even did an oil and filter change in advance. We lost the entire exhaust system last year, it's somewhere in the field. I welded on a resonator I got on amazon. It's still really loud.

    The theme was punk rock. We put some fog lights facing the rear on a button to try and blind people if they tried to pass us.

    I would love to get some studded winters for it. I found some on 13" honda rims with the right bolt pattern for $250. Just have to see how much tread is left.

    Man that looks so fun. I need to find something like this to end our Vic after we finish our plans for it.
