Homemade Racecar - FSAE - MD-2
I was on the Toledo FSAE team which was my first experience about racing, but I was always to tall to drive the cars. Decided to build my own budget FSAE car. This is by no means the fastest race car ever built but it still a blast to drive. Spent a year to build the car. It is by no means a perfect car. I learned a lot during the build. To me, actually doing it is the only time when you can learn and grow. So anyone who wants to get bash me about high roll centers, using bike shocks, or having a large amount of bump steer do not understand what it means to learn. In the end, what I have gained is a large amount of knowledge that I can put toward future projects.

home-made 425 Oldsmobile powered death trap
Don't laugh to hard at this. My buddy's dad build himself a rail job (death trap) race car, powered by a Oldsmobile 425 big block. Once again I don't have all the info but it does have an Edelbrock intake and a Holley carb. The Exhaust is running out open manifolds. Also has airbag suspension in the back and some fat Mickey T's. Check out the HUGE steering wheel, it's bigger than the actual wheels. Gets crazy going down the road. Thankfully he never actually took it to the track. It became doner parts for other projects. Have fun!!!!
