That looks heavy for the front of that puddle jumper. Why not use round tubing?

1% material?

better get some hardkore RCV shafts and some 1410 joints for your steering linkage. This looks intense!!!




all kidding aside are there any plans to give this pile enough giddy-up to be competitive?

As of now it's just for fun but there's most likely going to be a turbo sometime in the future

Adding a cage and the bumpers might double the weight of the thing.

does the OEM engine have enough H.P. to get all that extra weight up to speed?

I hope the only rallying you do is TS&D or maybe rallycross. If you want to put some hair on your chest, try you hand at rallycross racing. It's affordable, fun, decent seat time, and we even have a few da/night events.

Check out the Detroit Region SCCA/rallycross page or got to www.myautoevents.com so see other types of racing fun.
