- Background & Plans
Trying to build a dependable HPDE track day rat that I can flog for full sessions in the Texas heat.
If it ever gets sorted properly I hope to mod it to go play around at the back of the TT pack.
I picked up this car from my friend and Motorcycle mechanic, who occasionally flips cars. He found this gem with only 45k miles, a banged up front left corner, banged up RR corner, and a Carfax report that reads like a domestic violence affidavit. He's not much of a racer, and he built the foundation straight from the American Muscle catalogue. His original intent was to keep it for himself as a fun street toy but decided he didn't really enjoy the finished product.
I picked it up with the following parts already on it or in the box of extra stuff:
Pedders adjustable Coil-Overs and Camber plates
Saleen 4-Piston brakes on 14" 2-piece rotors (Stoptech ST-40 kit)
Whiteline Watts Link
20" Niche rims w/Frt 275s and 305s @ Rear
CAI & Muffler delete.
I'll update this soon with better pics and a proper build thread. Finally got it on track last weekend and learned I've still got plenty to sort.
