Vt Saloon Car Build, Super Six Touring Car Racing

Recommended Posts

G'day, i thought i'd start a thread for my vt racecar, iv'e had it for a few months now, i picked it up for $1200, it has been resprayed about 6 months ago, the clutch was effed, but i had to pull the gearbox out anyways because i have to run a t5 in the series i'll be going in, this is the site for what I'm aiming for www.vicsalooncars.com.au.htm . i have started stripping out the interior, i picked up some 17x8 mags for $100 off a mate, i have to run 17x8s in the series, i'll race it in the sprint series at winton till next year while i'm building it for saloon cars, then ill sadly sell my ke70 race car :( to buy the expensive bits to get me into the series :)


list of bits that i have to have for saloon cars:

cams approved roll cage that i'll build myself,

ss front lip,

235/45/r17 bridgestone potenza re11s type RH semi slicks,

xtreme flywheel i'll order some time this week,

fixed back race seat,

a mini spool,

and a fair bit of work to the motor but i can't think of what atm,

i have to run certain suspension,

that's all i can think of for now hahaha, they usually cost about $20,000 to build but as I'm building it myself i'm trying to do it for $8,000 haha, EDIT: more like $12,000......


here's some pics anyway :y:



it had fully sick (NOT) airbags in the back that i'll sell to get the springs i need:D







the clutch haha :D



got a ss spoiler from pick a part for $40, i need it for saloon cars lol



mags look much better in real life haha





cheers hope you all enjoy :D

G'day, i got the tires on the mags, and mounted the spoiler, i have to take the spoiler off and paint it but i just wanted to see what it looked like haha, it needs lowering at the front, and springs for the back because its held up by jacks haha, looks pretty good though.












still have to strip out the front but haven't had time yet.






i'll probably do some more work tomorrow :y:

what motor is this going to run?

they run the v6, you can do a fair bit of work to them, heads can be shaved to 54cc with one type of piston or 50cc for the other, ECU, and heaps of little bits i can't think of, i think they hit a touch over 300hp, they run on E85 too Edited by glenpos
