We are a LeMons Race team and have started campaigning a '87 RX. Originally, we raced an '84 300zx for 6 races in the past couple years but we are all Subaru Owners ('05 STi, '00 RS, '06 STi, '12 BRZ) and because Subaru Cars/Motors are not very common in LeMons, we wanted to try and raise it to contention. We also wanted something that had not been raced yet in LeMons and both the XT/XT6 and RX have not.
So earlier this year, we picked up an RX. It was the RX in Bend, OR. (You can see my '05 STi there too).
You might remember that it had an MPFI NA motor swapped in.
And was generally an Oily Mess
With some rust spots too
Well, we ended up picking up a 2nd motor (Turbo from a 90 Loyale Wagon) but it too had some issues:
Well, we put together various parts to put it back into its Turbo form and we managed to make if to the 2nd day of the last race of the season at Sonoma Raceway this past weekend and went from Start to Finish!!!!
Here is list of picture albums of our build of the engine/car/roll cage. While it was our 7th Race, it was our first time putting any engine together and our first time building a roll cage.

Thanks for looking and have a great new year!
