Is that Dan's motor?

Is he still lurking on a TR-42 or was it that he wants you to do something custom (like the car you have on EBAY here > http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...=STRK:MEWAX:IT )?

Here is the TR-42 Porsche T4 prototype ready to leave the Kentucky shop to its home in Florida where it will be painted, wired and final assembled. Windshield and fenders will be added.

Erik's 2.0 Subaru car will be finished next and then I would expect my 2.5 Subaru car to start in 3 weeks or so.

Ryan at Moore Performance said my twin scroll turbo is in and my EL headers and up pipe should be completed by the end of next week.

Tic-Toc-Tic-Toc

Enjoy -

I've only JUST NOW discovered this and am very VERY interested!! Just a few questions though:

- What sort of limitations will there be on wheel size?
- Will staggered sizes be an option? (not talking about STUPID size differences, But something like 9" wide in the rear and 7.5" in the front would be pretty ideal)
- What sort of cost do these things run?
- Will there be a build / assemble at home option??
- Will it comply with track regulations for open-top cars?

Thanks in advance!!

No limitations on wheel size except because of the extreme light weight of this vehicle you wouldn't want to go too big as you'd never get the tires heated up for adequate traction.

I went with ZR 235/45-17 front and ZR 255/40-17 rear tires and 17 x 8; 17 x 9 wheels, which is a bit bigger than the standard package of 17 x 7 wheels with 225 tires.

I expect to have about 25K in mine total but I'm going a bit overboard on several areas.

Yes, you can build and assemble at home.

I believe Danny (PooK) the fabricator designed everything to pass track inspections. You can ask him directly.

My car will be used on the street, at some local autocross events and some non-competitive track time at Road Atlanta.

Here is a pic with a 6'3" driver seated upright in an adjustable seat (Race seats sit lower)

The roll structure is .095 DOM, and side trusses beside the driver are thicker .095 DOM as well because I see them as intrusion bars or door bars as much as they are trusses.

Here is a set of 315's in place with the correct back spacing and how they would fit (and will fit on my V-8 version)

The seats in the demo are bought for and adjusted to my partners height (or lack there of...LOL) so don't judge by those, They are HUGH seats!

Coming soon with a web site to follow.
My partner will be testing the car (he's the driver not me), producing the vids, pics of the finished and painted car, and a build manual to ship with the cars.

My job right now is stuffing the Suby with its radiator and cooling tubes in this tiny car.

The engine R&R should be a super easy straight up and out pull.

I'll get some pics posted tomorrow of your turbo that I now want to keep! I definitely think the Evo hta 68 will be my next choice with the larger 84mm cover like your turbo has.....very very nice. I'll post pics tomorrow! Header is coming soon!

We have been looking at a number of photos, etc but after looking at this one for a while I think the scoop for the intercooler will work well with an inlet that will sit about head height or slightly higher right between the two seats. That's the next order of business!

VERY NICE!
Here is a pic or two of the space available for the ducting, I would say there are already gains from reduced convection.

BTW please excuse my makeshift IC prop rod...I don't have the brackets yet.

still think a lighter 5-spd would have been better for this light car...now it'll be about 80lbs more tail heavy

still cheering on this sweet project though.

It will be interesting to compare the four corner weights of Erik's 5 speed Subaru car vs my 6 speed Subaru car just to see the difference.

Mine will have a windshield where his won't. I believe I'll also have a tad bit more unsprung weight with my bigger wheels and tires too.

Add to all that the fact that at 225lbs I'm no featherweight guy.

well I was thinking more CG effect than total weight actually. It isn't just 80 lbs but pretty much 80 lbs behind the rear axle.

Empty corner weights will share all.
