Maybe we could have some type of wager thread for all the cars to make it even more interesting for us punters at home.

It probably needs a poll or some shit and we can make predictions as to who will finish this project first and who will catch fire.

I'm also liking the E30 as this challenge wouldn't be the same without one and the Cortina as the 6cyl TE where a bit of fun back in the day, this one with EF powers should go pretty well, maybe you could just cut the roof off?

Jims VN is leading the charge in the weight loss department.
Could be a new Jenny Craig commercial :yup:

I recon the other VN with the turbo and nos will do it as he's gutting it as much as I'm gutting mine, but has a bit more thought gone into the engine :lol:

Fastest time will be 12.6

Grumpy Rooster

I reckon you'll be fairly close Chuck. Somewhere in the mid 12's will be the mark.

I expect most cars will do mid to low 13's.

Greg Rust
09-01-11, 01:26 PM
That would be pretty sweet if a bunch of cars got into the 12's and then became Hampton cars?

Oh jeebus!!

Is any cunt going to put a Clevo in something as I have a cam, lifters, pushrods that would be suitable?

Greg Rust

Ok so I have my old block but it's got a split bore (needs sleeve ) but you could put the TRW forgies on Gamma's prepped rods but then your still short crank and heads?

This. I will have a stop watch in the car and if I get anything near the red streak's ET I will get off the gas/brake/drive into the wall.

For some people its about the respect.

Also, I dont want to tell people I built a car to win a dick.
