Where/when was this race? I saw a couple of rally cars on trailers while I was headed west on I-84/North on I-5 on my way back home from Boardman Oregon yesterday....

This last weekend. Friday night super specials were at Portland International Raceway. Saturday and Sunday start/finishes were in The Dalles and Dufur.

I was there. I saw them once in service, and once in a Parc Expose, but they were pretty elusive during the day. I wanted to have a peek inside and take some pics, but I never got close enough.

I heard that it laid down some very competative stage times, not bad for a borrowed car, but that later caused them problems when the turbo hose popped off and they didn't have the tool kit in the car. Later there was a IAC wire loose, and a fuseable link overheated

From the sounds of things - the condition of the car and his lack of knowledge/experience - one of these races it's going to catch fire and burn to the ground.

Sad that it's running the stock engine and wiring. That needs an EJ swap and new harness.

They could probably benefit from a knowledgeable ea82t expert on their crew

Obviously a Sparco wheel, is it also a Sparco hub adaptor? Does anyone know? I'm trying to find a way to put a race wheel in my RX project.
