hey every one, just thought i'd introduce myself here and throw a question or two out to those of you with a better grasp of the finer details (admit im more of a big picture kind of guy)
i've messed about with the hot rods, street machines and ricers a bit but between twits in car parks banging them up and cops seeing me as nothing but a target just got bored with it all
i've messed about with racing hill climb and circit a bit but the rules just make it so bloody expencive, and i think who ever sets race day must have his kids opposit weekends to me because the racing is ALWAYS the weekends i get my kids (and given the choice i'd rather be hanging out with them finger painting and baking and all the other horible stuff 2 daughters make you do before they become teenagers and hate me and the rest of the world ha)
anyway, salt racing looked fun, so google came to the rescue and lo and behold theres salt racing in australia!
i'll be coming to the salt 2011 for a look around and all things going to plan having a run in 2012
the car, this is the bit where you get to tell me im an idiot or not (but this being the internet feel free to just call me an idiot anyway, sledging strangers and porn seems to be its main reason for existance)
so i'd like to put a commodore 3.8 ltr v6 into a ke30 corolla coupe i have plenty of parts so the general build is
3.8 rebuilt to formula holden spec
commodore 5 sp (or forget 5th as wishfull thinking and go ford 4 sp?)
falcon b/w cut down to fit under car 2.5/2.7 ratio?
guess that makes it modified gas coupe E class?
do you think the short wheel base will make it a total nightmare or just seriously scary?
rules say standard hight, but i'm guessing this means roof/body because everyone dumps the heck out of the suspension yes?
soft or stiff in the ride?
ok, think i'll leave it there, dont want to look like one of those people who wants all the answers handed to them on a silver platter because there to lazy to look it up themselfs (so i am and i do, i just dont want to look like it, i'll just spread the questions out and nobody will know
anyway, thanks, and im sure i'll be bothering you again soon
