Ziptie Rally car takes a beating
Posted 24 May 2009 - 09:44 PM
subframe tweaked, lower radiator support pushed up/back about 6 inches, upper radiator support pushed up a few inches, lower radiator hose kinked.
we managed to get things pryed out and the hose trimmed enough that it would work in the 15 minute service window to get it out for the next rally and avoid a DNF.
anyway, for the good stuff. here it is in service right before the start of the event. the course was extremely rough, so we cranked the suspension up as far as we dared (about an inch higher than we had it at Nemadji).
a Mk V Gti made an appearance. he didn't pass tech on a little technicality, so he just ran as the 0 car.
our crew chief finding a good vantage point over the circle track
alfalfa and dandelion death (the road between the circle track and motox track went through an alfalfa field).
Earning our "Ziptie Rally" name
bent car is bent:
at the motel that night.
a couple short cell phone video clips.
I had my DV camera on them when the damage was done. footage should be posted soon
