Default Re: Looking to Join in 2011

I can answer your question a few ways.

I have a Neon, I do not have a Duster ( so I would have to buy one, and they are not cheap or plentiful)

To run the Duster I would also need:

Caltrac Bars, 8 3/4 Axle, a sure-grip unit, gears and a new driveshaft, Two headers insitead of one for the neon, 4 pistons instead of 8 in the crate motor, and an expensive converter and tranny in the Duster. Running low 15's will not require the same level of expensive parts as a 11 second crate motor car.

The Neon just needs to run the index, not set the record. So a good rebuild, headers and side gears will get it done and of course a set of slicks..

I'm not looking to build a $6000+ dollar race car here. I just want a legal car that can run the National Event at Grand Bend and so I can check off one on my bucket list.

Winning Indy in 1997 brings back a lot of memories and I want to do that again.

Mr CrateCamaro,

do I smell you making a new friend? make sure you PM directions to your stag so we can continue the conversation By the way I vote for ANY body style other than the Neon

Im up for anything or any car. I just thought maybe you already had a neon that was "beefed up". I have seen some buildups on these cars and they are not cheap to build as you probably already know. There is a duster im my area for sale....looks pretty good for 2500 bucks. Obviously its powered by "THE LEANING TOWER OF POWER" I wish I was a dodge guy because it would already be home with me. Not knocking any build so dont get me wrong. A stocker is a stocker to me. Dont want to get off on the wrong foot here.

No Problem... If I still had the Aspen it would have bee a 300 Commando powered Crate Engine Car.. or a J/SA 360 car. Unfortunately family came first.

The Car I'm looking at is a 1983 Charger Shelby with a carb 2.2 stick. Pretty good combo for DF/S.. Natural D Car..

I won a ton of races in Slow cars but I have also run 9's and that was fun too ( not in my car, I got hired to drive for a while)

I hope you guys don't fall asleep waiting to chase me down..
