I am thinking about putting a together a fwd race car to race on my local track. Here is a link to the rules: http://fwrace.com/StockCars/wp-conte...-FWD-rules.pdf I have no seat time. I have been around race cars for the last 5 years because my brother has been racing. I grew up going to the track, just never got in a car. Its a little different track. There is a 1/2 mile track, then they added another turn 1&2 inside to make a 3/8ths mile track. Turns 1 & 2 are not the same as 3&4. Its has some good banking to it, i just don't know the degrees. I couldn't find it on the website. As for the rules: Any manufacturer can be used. 4 & 6 cylinders allowed. No turbos/superchargers. 6 cylinder has to be an Auto, no 6 cylinder v-tech. . Suspension set up is allowed(with some rules) but no "aftermarket" parts for the suspension or engine. The engine has to match the manufacturer(no # of cams restriction though they add weight for more cams) The dominating car is my buddy's Acura Integra with a v-tech. He has qualified at 18.9's, he is probably faster but he doesn't want weight added to his car(its in the rules and they have added 150lbs to him since the start of the season). The next 3 cars run 19.3-19.5 and are a Saturn(Acura guys brother), Neon, and Olds toronado(3.8 v6). He is really the only one that has done "ok" in a v-6 car. Just too much nose weight for those cars from what i hear. There is one Gen 2 probe. He does well(usually finished 5th behind those guys running 19.7's), but he blew his motor the first race he had it out, and could only afford to put a 200k+ mile junk yard motor in it. I want to stick with the "Big 3" and not go the honda route. GM doesn't seem to be competitive. The Neon doesn't interest me. I have narrowed it down to the fords. Gen 1 Probe, gen 2 escort(with a later 2.0 motor in it) or a escort ZX2(though I haven't looked up the wheel base on it yet) What do you guys think? I know everybody will be a escort fan, but still wanted to ask your opinions.
