I haven’t been on here for a while, by the time I saw this post the ad was removed. If it is in fact my old single seater and it was available for $6K the new owner got a steal! You should have picked it up Jeff. I just drove SNORE Ridgecrest with my brother in the 9 car I built for my daughter and he to race, we had a blast! I entered it in 1600 and finished 6th. Class 9 is still a blast!
You can but it’s not necessary, that cars history is not long but filled with success, I believe it won 3/4 of the races I drove it in for 3 years, only 1 DNF and like 3 championships. Won the inaugural and second year back to back pro-9 championships. If I were you I wouldn’t change too many things on that car including trans builder, Transaxle Engineering is the best for class 9. Not sure if Barn Burner is still building engines but Babe cannot be beat. If you get to a race and need a back up driver let me know, I would love to get in that car again.It is your old car. I am very excited to now own it. The previous owner really did give me a great deal. Its been over 15 years since I race and I have a question that you may be able to answer. On the spindles, The rule of thumb was you had to weld the camber adjusting nut to the spindle. On this car they don't seam to be welded. Is there a reason why?
Never too old to swing!!! My daughter loves riding shotgun with me and my little brother got some good experience in what I think is the roughest of courses. Oh yeah a good used set of BFG KR2 32” tires work great on 9 cars!
Thanks for the advise. The car came with three "good used" Yokos. and five good fronts, so I'm good on tires. Just got two new batteries in last night, so I will be putting them in today if I get a chance. Do you remember what the weight of the car was? The guy I bought it from told me it might be a little under weight. The car also does not have an external oil cooler, is one not needed? Thanks again.A “good used set” will work on a 9 car, a new set is a bit too much traction for the gearbox in my opinion. I would hit up 1600 racers around Vegas for old take offs. I never ran a brand new set of rear tires, I would use 1600 take offs and tires from my prerunner so they were worn down quite a bit.
