Default Jake's Track Car Build

As some of you may know i picked up another s2000 a few weeks back.

Long story short, the car dropped a valve and the owner decided he was finished putting money into it. He decided to part out the drag car since it had a lot of big money parts into it. After bugging him for months he finally sold me what was left, basically a roller.

So here is what i have; A fully caged MY2000 roller and hardtop with no motor, no trans, no diff or axles. All the wiring harnesses are hacked up from the big turbo build/custom ecu/wiring. I've got kirkey seats and a mostly intact interior. I basically need to replace all the wiring harnesses, install stock fuel lines, put abs back into the car, motor, trans, diff/axles, ecu, all front end body parts. I'm going to put a stock motor in it with upgraded springs and retainers, baffled oil pan, oil cooler, catch can, electrical cutoff switch, big radiator, good non-staggered tires, poly bushings in every arm, and upgraded coilover suspension suitable for the track.

This will be a dedicated track car, built for track day fun.

At this point i'm searching for a rear end wrecked car to source the majority or the parts needed for the car, once i find that i should be able to get this up and running rather quickly. I've had enough of these cars to know how to build them the right way with quality components, and i can do it rather quickly. This marks my 10th s2000.

My two cents is that you should build it up as a spec qualified race car, perhaps similar to what Greg is running. That means you need to identify the class that you might want to run, find the rules, then build it to the specifications for that class. You don't have to race it, but ...

You can track a race car but you cant' race a track car.

Tracking your car is a lot of fun, no doubt. But wheel to wheel racing is even more fun. Eventually you will want to do it.

That is a great advice, and something i will take into account. Car will be mostly stock with exception to suspension, which would put my into STU class just the same as Greg if i'm not mistaken. I don't see myself racing however, too much money and too much time. I like doing track days, the two i've done in Greg's car have been a blast. There is a lot to be said for having a dedicated track car you can just take out and beat the balls off. I'm not sure how long i'll have this car, but at this point it needs to be saved and i'm going to give it another life. I'll have some fun with it on track during 2017 and we'll see where it goes from there.

Jake - you can also make it a rental car and probably make up to $800 or so for each event you rent for.

That way, the car will earn you some money that you can use for its upkeep and also possibly pay for your track time.
