When I'm not at an actual race track or motorsport event, I've found a quite suitable substitute...virtual racing! These simulations are very realistic. All that's missing is the natural effects of weather and gforces on your body, risk of bodily harm, and costly repairs, lol. I might also add it's far cheaper than real-world racing also!

There's tons of cars to race; from street stock to GT Prototype to F1, you name it, you can probably drive it here. I'm a member of a couple racing leagues, which I will make individual topics for. The cool thing is many racing events are "broadcast" live on the internet via YouTube and Facebook; these events are covered with all the realism of any NASCAR or F1 race you would watch on T.V. Look for the League threads I'll post soon!

Hey Folks,

The time has come to sell my 1989 Honda Civic Si that Iíve owned for 18 years. The car is set up for STS and is very competitive both locally and nationally. It was my first car and means a lot to me (which is why Iíve held onto it for so long), so I would love to see it go to someone locally who can enjoy it as much as I did. Email me at brenton.carson@gmail.com if you're interested or would like to see it in person. Thanks, Brent.

Can we get some insigbt on the Honda muscle car build.

Yeah, I've gotta get back to it.  I set the Insight aside to build the Porssat.  Now that it's done, I need to wrap up some more urgent stuff (head gasket on my truck, rebuild trailer axles) and then I can get back to it.

Thank for sharing the build with us followers.  I would love to participate in a Lemons race in the near future.  Gives another excuse to keep some unfinished projects around.

So, a bunch of you saw this car at the last practice autocross, or on Facebook. Ricardo, Gunny, Jeff, Chris, Paul, Pat and a few other friends put a second 24 Hours of LeMons race car together over the first few months of this year.  I've got all these carcasses sitting around my shop, so we picked the nicest one - Danielle's wrecked 996.  We got it under budget because I paid $5200 for the car, am selling the motor for $8k, and bought the donor car for $400.  The donor is a VW Passat with a 2.8L V6 - we've dubbed the finished car the "Porssat"

I put a build thread here on GarageJournal.  Here are the Cliff's notes

Before



After





The Passat engine and transaxle are where the back seat used to be




We did our first race last weekend at NJMP and shockingly, the car ran the whole time.  We had to get some more cool air to the rear-mounted radiator, but did pretty well.  The judges liked the car so much they made up the Porsche Excellence award for us.





Here is their race writeup.

And some videos from the car

My last stint, with the fastest lap.
Another video...where I hit another car towards the end.  Thankfully there was no real damage to either car

We're excited for the next race.  Gotta fix the cooling system before then, put some real brakes on the car, and do an alignment.  Maybe get some tires, too.  I think we can fit 295s on all 4 corners, but those are expensive...
