Some pics of the race car...

I was asked to post some pics of my race car. So here are a few....

This is from when it was still my daily driver, and I started doing track events. It had a bolt in 4pt cage, and Recaro reclining seats and a 320MM MoMo MOD78 Steering wheel.





In the winter of 2008/2009, with less than 70K original miles, it came off the road and was turned into a dedicated race car.

These were taken just after the roll cage was installed. The cage is not yet painted, I just have primer on all the weld points to keep it from rusting.






Here you can see the window net, but I'm not done with painting the rockers white.



This is from the rear 1/4, if you look close, you can see the roll bar has been painted blue.



Here's a shot from my first event racing the Focus @ Summit Point.

This is before I did the coil over conversion for the Koni's. I'm running the H&R "Race springs" which have too low of a spring rate for a track car, the car still has a bit too much body roll....




These were taken by two different photographers from two different angles at the same turn, the tight left hander on NJ motorsports park's lightning circuit.

This is just in the braking zone, my Focus is just on the inside of this CRX...



This was taken from beyond the exit of the turn after I completed the pass on the CRX.



When the weather breaks in the spring, I'll take some more pics of the car as I get ready for the 2010 racing season. Some upgrades are in the works, more brakes, more HP, and less weight.

"Yeah, Baby!"

Yes, It's magnetic.

I don't use them anymore.

I had it custom made with the Ford oval background.

The sign shop had to redo it to get the colors right because they were stupid......

If you are interested PM me with an offer. (I'll throw in the ugly "purple" rejects for free LOL)

BTW, the numbers overlap in the reverse order on the other side, so there's a left, and a right.

Internals are bone stock D23 swapped in from a 2004 ZX4. It's running a header with no cats, CAI, larger TB, and I did my own cal using the SCT pro racer package.

I've got a post with the current numbers in the Duratec perf forum "dyno stickie".

Before the end March I'll finish building the motor for the 2010 season, that will include many internal mods.

We are shooting for 235HP/180TQ from the new engine. with over 170TQ available from 4500RPM to 6500RPM with redline near 7500. The engine simulator software I'm using says it's possible with the STOCK TB AND STOCK INTAKE MANIFOLD provided I supply a custom cam which I'll be having made for me by Web Camshafts.
