General / How You Doing 2019?
« Last post by justfreaky on February 11, 2019, 07:52:49 PM »
So, I know I am late opening this topic for this year. Nobody posted last year, and this cold snap has slowed some of the progress on car builds. Seriously; Tell us how your car builds or season is going!!! Yes; There are a few people actually racing this time of year! lol!

Me I picked up a chassis and body from Craig G. in Idaho the end of last year (Legends). I'm waiting on this cold snap to break so I can get to the building part of things moving. At this point, it is sitting on stands in the garage. (Unfortunately, unheated!) Hope to have all together for this season. Still going to run SCCA autocross. Plan has not changed in that respect.

Wishing everyone a great 2019 season!

Setup and Handling / Re: Other tires for road racing
« Last post by RPM on February 05, 2019, 11:34:28 AM »
I would suggest going through and beefing up everything suspension related. We had a customer last year that brought his roadster in that was running a set of Hoosier slicks, I do not recall what compound he was running but it actually ripped the down tubing on the forward trailing arm mount out of the car. The welds held but it tore the tubing open from the extra grip. If you are going to be adding additional gripping force it would definitely not be a bad idea to gusset up and support whatever you can.

If I can find the pictures I will post them up.

Setup and Handling / Re: Other tires for road racing

It was suggested to me several years ago to look into Hoosier A7 or R7. Since then, I have been looking at other brands such as Toyo Proxes RR and BFGoodrich  g-Force R1. These are a DOT legal tires and are designed for autocross and competition racing. They are slick type tires and do come in a 13" wheel size. I have not yet gotten my car together, so haven't tried any of them yet. I do have a friend that uses the Toyo Proxes R888 series tires for road racing. The price doesn't seem to bad compared to some of the others.

Setup and Handling / Other tires for road racing

Looking at putting on non legends (Federal) tires for road racing. Looking at Goodyear,Yokohama and Hoosier. Can do 13s or 14s similar to what's on a formula car (FF or FC)
Anyone play around with this? Not worried about the rules, just trying to get better turn in performance and grip.
Thanks

If you’re speaking of the new FZ09 engine, rules state that you can only run the INEX Sealed version of that engine as supplied by USLC. If you’re speaking of the original FJ1200 engine, you can either use the INEX Sealed FJ1250 or open FJ1200, which I assume you are referring to. As of today, there are roughly 20 competitors at our local dirt track on a weekly basis, so far only one car is equipped with the new FZ09 engine. Hope this helps!

General / Japanese bike import engines.

I'm wondering as to the legality of Jap import engines to use on dirt speedway, I can't remember if I read somewhere that engine specifically made for bike in Japan where not allowed to be used in legend cars.?

« Last post by kgirard19 on January 22, 2019, 06:42:18 AM »
Now in stock on Go Motorsports Shop, smaller lug nuts, and finally with the 45 degree taper! For years racers have asked for the smaller lug nuts with a taper that matches the 1" lug nuts and the Aero/Bassett wheels. We listened and they are now in stock online! Use the same socket you use on your suspension bolts on your lug nuts when you order yours in the link below.
