Yes indeed we are. A 1990 Plymouth Laser RS to be exact. Of course we’re using a DSM because it makes all the sense for us. We have spares upon spares, and we know the cars intimately.
The car is FWD as is all 1GA Lasers; therefore we will be competing in the ARA 2wd open class. Since we will be in the novice class we unfortunately will have to run a 30mm restrictor in the turbo inlet. Oh well.
We’ve got a few people helping us source parts, and this is a fun way to give back to the community. As far as the racing side goes, Nathan will be the driving talent and I will be his co-driver. We’re both talented drivers but he’s undoubtedly got an edge on me especially in loose surfaces. It’s something we’ve talked about for years and we’ve decided it was time.
We have to amass much safety equipment and build a cage for the car, but this weekend I’ll be working on getting the rest of the interior out of the car and chipping sound deadening out. This should be a fun project!
If anyone has any pointers or items for sale let me know!
