Figured I would post this up.Thought I would make a post in here for the build of Bare Metal Racing #28
Made Possible by Wheelz (Brad), NotAZ06(Todd), Rusher(me ) and Slowcart(Aaron)
So a couple of the DSR guys got together last year and decided to build a car for 24hrs of LeMons. Alot of you have heard about the project here and there. But I thought I would put together a little build thread on BareMetal Racing.
We actually ended up building it for Chump Car World Series. $500 dollar car endurance road racing.
Our Car is a 1992? Nissan Sentra SER
It was purchased in Sturgis, SD for $260 buckaroos.
Newer Motor not sure of the miles or the abuse that it has seen
Something is messed up in the Transmission - It was actually the clutch
But here is a little photo documentation of how the car came together...
The car is stripped down with some very bad shape Ksports of a B14 sentra on the front, with rear being stock struts with a coil spring mounted (getto setup) but it worked.
We then sent the car over to Ron and he worked his magic and welded us up a hell of a cage.
Back to the shop it when and JimEd, Aaron, Todd, and Brad finished up all the details. Which was a HUGE list. I went on a family vacation be for the race thinking the car would be done. Won't do that in the future!
Reinstall the Windsheild
Align the Car
Install the Raybesto's special brake pads on the front - Man are they awesome!
New rotors, rear swaybar endlinks
Fix all the vaccum and ignition problems (big thanks to JimEd and Brad fighting with this)
Welded in a little steel mesh to protect some things.
Finished mounting the switches, gauges, mirror..... This thing has a ton of hours into it!
Ultrashield spec miata seat, quick disconnect with new steering wheel, multi element racing mirror....
But now we are starting to gear back up for Hallett, OK the end of August for a true 24hr race. Noon to Noon!
This is an amazing way to learn true W2W racing. It isn't cheap as tires, brakes, fuel, travel. But it is sure fun!
But this car could also be ran with SCCA, NASA or really any organized road racing circuit.
This is the Lemons Team I will be Crew Chiefing for come Hallet 24. I was originally supposed to be a driver for this team along with another guy, but due to family expansion for both me and the other driver we had to back out financially.
Anyways- sorry for the huge pics and enjoy.
