    Hard to really say when there's no good apples-to-apples comparison. You'd have to put the same driver in both cars (if we're talking between the VW Polo, Ken's HFHV and VSC Subaru). Even at that,...

    Yeah, I finally brought out my half-assed setup with my stock G27 so I don't have my seat and fanatec load-cell pedals which give me a better seating postion. I'm more in a bus driver setup right...

    I've got 160hp in a ~2500lb car, so I'm at a similar power/weight ratio as these. Granted, I'm driving the front wheels and these drive the rear/all wheel. But it's not all track width, longer...

    I just think safety in these things if you're on a tight road and smack a tree with it. Every stock picture of these I see has a shitty single shoulder belt for them, cages that are bolted together...
  5. I guess I don't know what a "well put together"...

    I guess I don't know what a "well put together" UTV is. To me, that sounds like $20k for the UTV + upgrades. So if we're talking about "low cost" I don't see it there. I'm out of touch with the...

    That seems embarassing for the open class guys to get stomped by some ~110hp souped up ATV?





    In terms of safety, I'm sure they're well behind being in a fully caged car?

    You can take a car load of friends and marshall a couple stages, still catch a service or two. I've done it before.

    In my opinion, I'd rather use 14" wheels and tires when I can. 15" are too big and heavy for my liking but I have wheels for both so I can buy what is available. The weight difference between my...

    Was that only in the dry conditions without loose gravel on top? I'd expect in loose gravel and more so in the wet there could be a difference just as the same as a uni-directional tire being run...

    I guess one other thing, are these directional tires and L/R side specific, or are they copying the Michelin non-directional tread? Doing some google searching, it looks like they are L/R side...

    I'm being a real scrub and not participating these past few weeks, but my excuse is that I got my appendix removed 2 weeks ago. I'm told I cannot lift more than 10 lbs for 30 days after surgery and...

    Pretty much talk to any engineer and you can't make good parts, let alone they'll tell you you're dreaming on trying to manufacture what you designed when you have a good machinist who knows the...

    Best advice on how to afford rally. Your kid can become your rally car.

    Again, Dillon's family has money. Shit, his Fiesta is a beast of a machine but if an R2 fiesta costs $70k turnkey, granted his didn't need homoligated parts, but still was a lot better spec'd...

    Type R finals only work on TypeR/GS-R differentials, so make sure you match it to the correct differential, B16 boxes are more plentiful and common but only came in a 4.4 OEM final. I'm running the...

    This thread has now 100% gone to shit.


    Bottom line, there's no "cheap" way to race unless you happen to have a large sum of money. If you honestly want to get close to racing, but not have a...

    As an FYI, an "RS" transmission is the same as the LS. It's got the longer gears and a 4.26 final drive. Good news, you can swap in any b-series gears. 1st is always the same, RS/LS have a...

    Getting a job and finding your own source of income is how just about everybody starts. The only people who start out in the big leagues already had a large fortune in their pockets, so don't look...

    Something I would suggest if someone buys a car, tear it down and practically build it back up. Check the wiring, change timing belt, hoses, seals, do a valve lash, etc on the car. Just open up the...

    Every rally car is for sale, you just have to offer enough money at the owner or ask them for them to part ways with it. If someone wants to pay me cash for my car at a price I think is fair, I'd...

    Did you fail to mention that the car has an existing logbook? Plenty of cars with existing logbooks are out there racing under an old spec cage. The difference where there is no "grandfather"...

    I've driven with the co-driver's shoe lace on the throttle cable, that close enough?

    I'm with Richard. Just zoom in on the sat map to where you want, Print Screen to copy the screen and paste it into MS paint and draw some lines. Should be very basic. If you're looking for...

    You can "poor man's LSD" with left foot braking as well. I know there's the argument that a torsen is crap compared to a clutch diff, but I'd rather have that than no diff.
