My friend and I have done a few TSD rallies over the last year and we are now excited to be starting our first stage car build. We both have a good mechanical background, I am a helicopter AME and he is a tech at a Nissan dealership. We plan to continue doing TSD's and hopefully also some ice-racing this Winter in my Legacy GT as we build the 2.5RS.
Our goal is to build a fairly basic car for racing in production class in Western Canada.
I picked up this 4-door 2000 2.5RS a couple months ago as a starting point. I've put about 5000kms on it since then and no major problems have arisen. The tear down started a few weeks ago and the car is getting close to being ready for a roll cage. Removing all that sound deadening material was quite the chore but it looks nice and clean now and will look great once the cage is in and everything is painted white!
For a roll cage we are looking at picking up this weld-in cage from Custom Cages UK.
Does anyone have any experience with this cage, or with Custom Cages in general?
I look forward to learning a lot on these forums and will post up our progress in this thread as we go.
