Topic: New Car, New to Lemons - Chicagoland area
I've acquired a 2006 lancer thats seen other racing events and would love to enter it in the next Gingerman race in October. A few issues stand in the way however.
Its not running. Compression is low 40-60psi on all four cylinders. Obd port is not responsive but I've tested for fuel, spark and timing and all seem okay.
I have zero safety equipment as of yet
I have no towing equipment (plan to borrow parents truck and rent a dolly at last resort)
I've never been racing before so I'm likely missing other essentials but I've got some tools, Google, and a desire to get things running and on track.
There is a roll cage but the body is pretty roughed up at the moment. Not sure if bumper covers are required to pass tech lol. I have some damaged civic bumpers I might try to utilize ^.^
So yeah, tons more to mention but thought I'd start here to see what needs to happen for a chance to register and make it in October
