A couple friends and I have been shopping (semi-seriously) for a car for the 24 hours of LeMons. At roughly 10lbs/HP after stripping the car, you'd have plenty power to place really well. Then some intelligent and maybe flamboyant aeromods and cheapo suspension tweaks... cut springs and such... and ... BUTTERIBLE FUN FOR ALL!
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
