Well it's finally here

2002 ZX3



First things first I did an overall check.

Rear subframe, arms and bushings are all getting replaced they are to rusty to use.
Also it's leaking oil somewhere. Haven't figured out where yet. Gonna clean it tomorrow and see f I can find out where

Replaced the cone filter because the mesh was rusty.

Buying my team dynamics rally wheels sometime tomorrow

Getting a tune done by Tom trading him a stage 4 clutch


Anyone got zx3 parts they don't want?

Essentially yeah. And hopefully some tools haha. But I have teams I know that will help me if anything breaks, team O'neil, as well as Erik Hills team and Kyle Williams as well

You should make a list. Having been there, it is pretty easy to forget stuff when your head is down working on the car hard.

Good. I know someone who was all set to race and he found out that he couldn't because he had his physical more than a year ago. Lots of stuff to manage to make sure this happens successfully. If I can help, just let me know.

Alright guys today's shenanigans!

So I started by trying to find the oil leak.... No luck. Put a peice of clean dry cardboard under the car after 12 hours it's still dry...hmm.

So I took off the FSWERKS Strut tower brace

Had to chop off the rear brace because the bolts were rusted too it... Sigh


Went to menards got some sheet metal and rivets and made some Gravel guards for my rockers





Sorry about the darkness. Will post better pics tomorrow. Here's a brighter close up before I finished rivets




Oh and here are the wheels I'm getting



Also I have a buddy driving 9 used BFG rally tires 200. Miles to bring them to me . Will post pics.

Got the tires for free so not concerned about tread but they looked VERY useable.

Wow - Rally Rubber!

I think BFG has supported Rally longer than anyone else in the USA.

It'll be great to watch your build.

Parts from my aborted Rally build are still rusting in the basement. Not much call for factory rally parts to fit an '05 Plymouth Tourismo (Dodge Charger clone).

luck!
