Default I have a 242, and I mean business.

Updated 1/29/2013
Budget racer commence...

This is going to be a ICSCC GP race car. The Last one was too pretty and too fast.
This so far is neither.

There were a ton of wasps in this car. If it wasn't cold out I would have been in a world of hurt. They kept crawling out from places all pissed off, slow motion, unable to fly.
Also waaaay more mud inside the car than there should be.
I can safely say that had I not saved this car it was destined to turn into a ball of wasp inhabited moss.

Work is crazy busy, and I'm out of town all the time now. So, it will be slow going, but here it is...

Build as is:
1984 242 DL

Doner car:
1987 244 DL M47

Engine:
RSI head on a "refreshed" B23f
Stock bottom end
Estimated WHP: 120

That might turn in to the mean DD if it's clean enough. That thought just happened minutes ago.
I already have the 242 the thread is about.

Just thought I'd keep it from being fed to the lions in OT with some Bolbo content.
