Race Riot Build- Best In the Desert
Okie Dokie Folks,
Well, a ways back Damon and Jay (four_by_nut) prepped a frame for a Riot desert racer. It was all gusseted up and had the door area barred. They did a fantastic job I might add. Long and short of it is that somehow I ended up with the frame and the build is on again!!
I added tabs for mounting a solid aluminum skid plate and painted it today. The first race is January 8th and 9th, the Parker 250 in Parker Arizona, so I better to get moving. I have new seats from Twisted Stitch, a Wilwood dual master cylinder with a bias bar, upgraded heims, Timken bearings, Crow 5 Point Harnesses and Optima Yellow Top battery. I'm reusing my old Fan powered oil cooler, Hiper Wheels and Elka 2 stage Elites (having them rebuilt by Elka and custom tuned for my car’s race weight).
I’m adding a Parker Pumper fresh air system for helmets, billet rear hubs, reinforced rear trailing arms, race radio/ helmet to helmet intercom, and full instrumentation (volt, fuel pressure, water temp, oil temp, oil pressure and standard RPM & Speedo). Also I’m in the early stages of implementing some performance upgrades that may benefit the whole Redline community. I'm the guinea pig and it ain't cheap, but if it works out, you'll be the next to know!! No peeps under the hood at the latter (performance upgrades) before we’re done and tested!! LOL
Mike at Red Rock is going to be my co-driver. We will be race testing various performance products in hopes of raising the bar for all of us in the Redline world!! Look for Mike in the future to bring you updates on the performance upgrades as we progress. Our goal is to race test various products for performance and dependability and make those products available to everyone…….
