  • How about a racers' build thread section?

    That is so awesome! I cannot wait to see some more variety out there racing!

    I read through the build thread, and intend to check back in.

    Would it be out of the question to have a race car build thread on this forum?

    I think a lot of people who race have interest in diverse cars. I'm sure I'm not the only one on a dozen forums. It would be great to keep track of racers' builds right here!

    How about a racers' build thread section?

    One of the best things about our club is seeing a diverse bunch of cars out on track in action.

    Right now, we have a bunch of members building interesting cars. Because the field is diverse, they end up on all sorts of forums out on the inter web.

    Would others be interested in seeing a section on here to keep tabs on what racers and HSAXers are building?

    Can we form a section dedicated to the build threads?

    I propose we not separate the wheel to wheel and HSAX guys as far as the build threads go. The tech and interest should overlap.

    And given the tension we sometimes get on here, we could uses some togetherness!

      Good Idea

      Shawn I think that is a good Idea. John L. and the rest of the gang will see this and we can talk about it at the next BOD. Get more people looking at MC and not some were else. Ron J

        Easily done, I could add it to the "General Discussion" forum.

        Anyone care to suggest a catchy name for the "Build-a-Car" sub-forum?

          I would think simply New Build Thread, New car Builds, etc. Pretty common naming in other forums. This way someone doing a generic search (new car builds, etc.) from somewhere else (Google, etc.) can come upon our thread as well and hopefully attract new interest.

            yeah neat idea!
            I have over 300 posts and 24K views on mine.
            The more info you post and more pictures you place in here the more attraction Google will give us!

              Which thread is that? I can move it into this Build forum.

                It's probably the one with toaster in the title Although I think he may be referring to his build thread on another forum.

                  LOL! Yeah most defiantly not interesting to us racing guys, but for low HP toaster guys it can be pretty neat stuff.

                  Would love to see some of your guys up-keeping/builds/and just in between races stuff. You know cool nice small block muscle care stuff, nascar motor stuff, downforce tuning stuff, miata struggle stuff.

                  NOT installing a cold air intake, tinting my windows, k&n filter, cat back bs stuff. But any more traffic in here can only help grow the MC popularity.

                    SWEET!

                    Car build section lives!

                    I felt a bit of pressure to get a thread up since it was my idea. I cut and pasted most of my original (2 plus year) build thread. I hope it isn't overkill.

                    I want to see some more threads!

                    I'd love some details on:
                    Exocets
                    Datsuns with LS1s
                    6 speed swapped Impalas
                    Blue Camaros that defy physics or Red ones that have broken stroker motors...
                    C4 Corvettes made fast for cheap
                    Other Vettes made fast (for not so cheap)
                    Anything vintage made to live on a road course (I'm looking at you big block vettes and AMXs)
                    Anything else I forgot with cool mods
