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



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...

Rick and Bill, is it your desire to classify in Masters for the entire season?  If so, let me know.

Opened with a different browser. I am supposed to be in the masters class, though. # 63 ESP.

I also registered in matters class.  #36

I'll get you both changed to master whenever I update the results again (withing the next week). 

Looking at motorsportreg, neither of you selected Masters, its in the pax section under class. (See attachment)

Bill: If you want to be able to pre-register as a member then I need you to register for membership through motorsportreg.
