Topic: New Florida Team car decision/finds
My friends and I are forming a team here in Melbourne Florida. We plan to have our first race in November at MSR Houston. We originally had one of our drivers who was getting ready to scrap his Civic give the car to the team. After learning more about the race and talking with some staff we have decided the Civic is a last ditch option if we cant find any other cars. We presented our rediculous theme and they like it. After doing some searching we have found a couple candidate cars with minor issues close to budget.
An older first gen Volvo s60R that has compromised engine mounts and possible suspension issues is the first find.
Second we found a Lincoln ls v8 that has overheating issues (probably the pump).
Third we found a 1986 Saab 900 that says it needs exhaust and has bad interior.... He he he
What do you guys think about those cars? Chance of exploding? If these suck What's the best outlet for finding Lemons cars? General class on each car? We as a team just want to survive our first event and learn what we suck at so we can do better for the next one. We have all been reading up on everything we can find in the forums and getting familiar with it all. Thanks for your help guys.
