New project a comin'

Post by sachilles » Mon Aug 31, 2009 12:15 pm

Two people from this forum know what it is.........keep your trap shut. :butthead: :lol: don't ruin it for everyone.

A teaser for the rest of you.
I got a little frustrated with the "progress" on morris. The Morris project is NOT dead. I wanted something that I could do some of the faster events with and not have to worry about how I was getting to work the next day, if I cracked it up. This car currently fits the bill.

As it sits, it should be class 2, and very competitive there.
Probably won't have to worry about break-out times at the hill climbs(no cage YET).
It doesn't have a name yet.
It has a metal roof.
It does not have forced induction.
Hope to grab it this weekend. Pictures when I do.

Did you finally get a Honda and decide to come over to the dark side ;)?

You do realize that Morris is to have a b16 with an integra type R tranny, along with Honda suspension and brakes(at least in the front). So does that count as being over to the dark side yet....considering I started out with VW's and Audis.

So I do have plenty of Honda parts kicking around the house.

No, I didn't realize that was your plan for the Morris (I'm still a new guy :oops: ). Glad to here that is still in the works.

How'd you get away with another car in the driveway?

Baab is going bye bye.
A friend of a friend wants to fix it up to give to an older gentleman in his parish.
Given that it's an auto and in decent enough shape, I thought that was a good use for it.

A b16 with an ITR transmission is still a blast. I would love to see it when it's finished. Power to weight ratio will be really nice too.

What's the make of the new project... you have to at least tell us that.
