lookie here http://24hoursoflemons.com/index.html

Those of you in Northern Cali/Nevada should get a team together.

I am forming a team here w/some guys. Probably not going to be a soob but I will have a soob as a support vehicle.

Hope to see someone there.

That looks like alot of fun. A chance to take unlikely to what it deserves.
We have a whole season here of cars setup for smalltime racing, but called anything but lemons.. I won't mention the track and categories, it is taken a bit seriously by some. I think I am one of few who laughed watching some of the races. I love the theme of the 24 hrs of lemons, great idea! :)

I think that a Subaru could be a force to be reckoned with at this event.

Subes are inexpensive and fairly indestructable and some of you on this board know how to make them go fast! It looks like it could be a lot of fun.

DUDE!!!!:banana:

I will seriously help sponsor a USMB-er entering this event. (I'm not kidding. PM me if you're seriously interested.) I would love to do it, but I'm just too far away.

Someone please run a 90-94 Legacy wagon. You could buy one for 100bucks, then put a hackjob turbo on it for 300, and have 100 left over to fix the suspension.

one thing that's in the rules that i don't like is this


so basically.if you winning,you can still lose by having your car pulled out of the race to be destroyed...:-\

-not to mention how much it costs to get in just to probably have car destroyed-

Nah, I'm thinking a beat early Corolla (RWD) or maybe even a Chevette, something nobody would cry over if it died.
The key would be to take the car, spray oil all over the engine, run it around to get some dirt stuck in it, Kick it, beat it with a hammer to make it ugly, but have it running pretty good. If it's ugly, they may ignore it.
Maybe set it up to burn some oil too, run an injector line down the exhaust or something.....

I was considering a hatch. I say one in the area w/a blown HG for 200 bucks. It would be really easy to fix.

Informal talks with my team have narrowed the vehicle choice to either a subaru b/c of my knowledge of the car and the fact that most team mates own soob or a honda b/c the guy who owns the flatbed truck is familiar with them. Both cars are desirable b/c of the lego like characteristics in terms of upgrading.

I would hate to see a hatch get killed. but then again, the hatch would have a 5 point cage installed afterwards so it would make a great track or offroad beater.

We'll see how it goes.

THanks for the support and encouragement.

Looks like we will be getting this as our car. I am going to see if its too nice to trash.

Will post picks when we get it.
