Default Weekend Road Race STI Build Beaver Crew

Thank you for checking out my build.
I understand everyone has a opinion or there way of building a car.
THIS IS MY WAY.
Thanks for your input and comments
KEEP IT POSITIVE or helpful.


Building a road race car for weekend track days.
Nothing really serious. Just for fun. Started out with a shell I bought from a member on this site.
Most the work is being done in a friends garage. Beaver Trail Motorsports Crew
Keep in mind this cage is being build to run full interior.

Looks great man! Picking up a shell for a track car seems like a good idea, it would be easier to add new/upgraded pieces without the hassle of taking out old, rusted bolts or parts. I'm interested to see what the cost to maintain a track car like this would be too, that is one that isn't being built to the extreme and being used very hard often. I don't believe I will ever be able to afford a full out race car due to the parts and time it would take to maintain. Yet, having a DD to use as a track car can be problematic as well. A build like this may be the balance needed to own a great track car that won't cost you an arm and a leg due to issues.

That's awesome. I really like how well reinforced the attachment points for the roll cage are.

Full interior is the goal. Trying to keep it stock looking as possible

Stock looking - with that amount of tubing in the car!

Surely you can't be serious.

The must have tool for doing the hard A/N Brake lines. IMO . ( Double flare )

The hydraulic tool makes the job much more simple.

The Mastercool deluxe Master Universal Hydraulic Flaring Tool Kit

Lucky mi amigo had one of these i could barrow. The price tag is a bit scary but after using the tool is worth every penny.
