"Racing" is expensive.I'm not even really racing though... I just want to be able to run a full 20 minute track session in a stock motor, stock turbo car with headers and a downpipe without having to spend 60+% of the session doing cooldown laps.
This is where I harp on people about building a car for cooling. For track, cooling should be a HUGE focus if you want it to last. That is why my S2000 is setup the way it is.
I could melt down a stock car pretty quickly. I've ridden passenger in some stock cars with novices and even they were overheating their cars.It’s impossible to run straight 20mins even on a stock car. Those that do it aren’t monitoring.
