  1. In Topic: What's Your Winter Project?

    Posted 3 Nov 2017

    Two projects going using old junk laying around the shop. Some newer equipment would be nice, but sticking with the low cost labor intensive routes.

    Project #1 Modified

    New bumper is made and installed just some sheet metal work to be mechanically complete. However I still have a lot of work to do on getting the setup right. This is an old car that I completely redid the front and rear suspension on (including mount points) over last year and due to life was only able to get it done and out the last 2 races of the year. Problem is it's not a "brand name" chassis so no help from a builder and honestly I'm still trying to figure these cars out. My first guess at springs was off a bit I know, but 2 races is not enough to dial in a "new" car (maybe if I knew what I was doing). Really have a lot of thinking on this to see what setups I want to test and have them ready for test and tune in the spring.

    Project #2 Street Stock

    Been sitting the last 2 years. Currently stripped down and needs completely inspected. Plan to add spring buckets to the rear and new sheet metal and get it back to looking like this.

    Current plan for next year is still trying to figure out the modified. I know the rebuild was a step in the right direction, it at least feels like it's drivable now just hoping some more track time will help me figure out the setup and get some more speed out of it.
  2. In Topic: Welcome Back to MSTRC 2017!

    Posted 4 Oct 2017

    This is great news. I have to admit that I would randomly once and awhile just to see if the site was back up. I had kind of lost hope and not sure why but just randomly decided to check in one more time today. I to my delight I saw that MSTRC logo and page come up on my browser.

    Glad itís back if was a resource and group great group of people that I missed greatly. Hope to see you all around the site again from time to time.
