This photo can tell you so much about what's going on here. The hand prints on the hood and fenders, shows a form of neglect.. She has been pushed around the garage several times to "get out the way." The hood has been opened just to be shot right back again. I even posted it for sale not too long ago. Then It happened.....I got word of a new series with Gridlife that will be called Gridlife Cup, a new wheel to wheel series. The rules aren't released yet, but from my understanding there will be a power to weight ratio of 12.5:1, aerodynamics limitations, and tire stipulations. It seems to be tailored for a low horsepower, but the maximum fun type of racing.
Gridlife Has rejuvenated my inspiration to get this thing ready for 2019. Hell, I may even be able to solicit my team mates to campaign as a team. With that being said, lets look at some options to reach that 12.5 pounds per 1 horsepower ratio. The goal is to be around 190-215 wheel horsepower. That will keep a nice balance of weight and power in my opinion, so let's get started shall we.
So what do you think? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!
Although i was silent on the track, behind the scenes have been hectic, exciting, frustrating, and demotivating at times. So over the next couple of weeks I want to not only personally thank some companies and the people behind them but some friends as well. Honestly with out their help, although a cliche saying, I wouldn’t know where I’d be right now.
First up Joe at ColorFittings has been a major help when it comes to fittings, line, and the behind the scenes of running a small business. Talked and texted for hours and even made an extra order to his manufacture just to fulfill mine. I can be difficult to deal with, trust me but he has gone above and beyond my expectations. You ever realize you need a couple other parts that you forgot on your original purchase order moments at five am when your package ships In a few hours. Yeah like I said I’m difficult sometimes. I’m running Colorfittings AN fittings and AN line.
Rob at TracTuff thanks for making a quality product first of all. Not only that but thanks for reading my long emails about countless product developments and your helpful feed back on them and Sheri’s current configuration. I’m running Tractuff’s coolant adapters for K series in a RWD platform ,type s oil pump conversation, rear cam cooling modification, and their valve cover. Their are some more products that they will be helping out with so stay tuned for that.
Last but not least for today would be my friend TK whom I want to publicly apologize to. I cheated on you with another welder and it went wrong haha. Honestly TK is one of maybe three people I trust welding anything for me now. He fanned up my old v mount intercooler and on this car he has done a few things such as my intercooler and fittings on the radiator. Just wanted to let you know man I appreciate your patience and the talks about the bigger picture my dude.
It was all down hill from here...."Going to keep it stock"
Still clean.....Still streetable......I started doing some Auto crosses with WCMC....
Where it all started to transition into a race car. I started doing more track days through out the year and decided that I was going to build the car for Nasa TTC.
starting to look more like a race car.....roll bar going in......soft top gone.....paint chipping
....Race car now....Wheel came off on track, destroyed bumper....Race car that is street driven
Took it down to Rd.ATL and that's when I got hooked on Time Attack. I may or may not have lost a bumper while I was down there.
Wanted to make things look nicer, quieter straight pipe as well. Canards where added to, slowly but surely going to a time attack car. Still streetable ish.
Stickers off, prepping for vinyl...Testing with my old team mate Adam
Balls deep in Gridlife Time attack series. Still driven to the track as is.
achievement unlocked: Getting used to power. Now adding aero pieces to help put it to the ground. Oh yeah and one color again.
The last season she ran, She did well and will be the last season it will ever be street driven to the track.
The year pf retirement and refinements....and K series......
