    Team Finalgear in the 24 Hours of Lemons

    Yes, thats right.. we are in the 24 Hours of Lemons!

    More specifically, we are in for the Flat Rock Speedway on September 29th/30th!

    Me, Serajadeyn, and a few other drivers are in the race with a very fancy/beatup car..


    A 1993 BMW 525i!



    (photo of car in progress).

    So here is the catch- we are asking for sponsors to help cover some of the car costs (Rollcage, safety belts, fire ext, tires, brakes, and traveling cost from MD to Michigan). If you donate to us, your name/logo/websitename/graphic of choice (non-pornographic please) will get a spot on the car.



    (put your name/site url/link to image in the message box..)


    Cheers,
    The FinalGear Racing Team.

    How much of a donation would it take to get to be one of the drivers at the event?
    PS I am serious, and have track experience in both Motorcycles and Cars and if you are interested I would want details like how many drivers you currently have and about how much driving time.

    Cant provide much in the way of financial support, but I might be able to provide emotional support by attending the event...maybe.

    Considering the rules, you want to go with whatever you can get, and the past has shown, the guy with "lots of of power" tend not to win.

    We removed the fan clutch and replaced it with a permacool 16", which should give us a decent bhp boost, along with 0 cooling issues

    Sweet.

    Although it would have been hilarious if you guys found an old Volvo just like Clarkson's from the cheap car challenge.

    What would it take to get an image of David Hasselhoff on the car?

    I'm very tempted to come along to the event to add some moral and possibly some wrench turning or any other kind of support. I think it would be worth the 2.5 hour drive.

    one very big hole in that plan.... i dont think anyone knows what alias they use. for all you know, i could be andy willman.

    personally im not sure he even has a membership here, you can browse the site as a guest, no need to sign up.

    what size of donation are you looking for? im guessing the odd £10 isnt going to get you very far. I cant really donate more than that tho

    wait! has some one added wing mirrors with the indicators inside them?

    There is no replacement for displacement.

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.
