Epic Subaru 360 Racing Autocross
Willamette Motor Club's Oregon state fairgrounds Paterson Memorial Autocross in Salem Oregon Sunday Aug. 5th 2012. What a riot !. Have you ever wondered if a tiny 25hp Subaru 360 Sedan and a Novice driver could compete against cars with 500hp? It shocked me and everyone else how well my little 1969 Subaru 360 Sedan did. It wasn't the fastest car. No, as a matter of fact it was very you can't take your eyes off hairy-scary. The good: It corners on dime, you point it, it goes! It is also balanced well. Crazy fun!, by far the most fun to drive. No cones were harmed, at least on all my runs I didn't knock over a single cone. It fits anywhere on track, there are no tight spots ! The bad: It's underpowered, but, thats good..... If it had more power it would go faster and I'd have rolled it like an egg. I did find it's cornering limits and that's the hairy scary part. The Subie runs on the ragged edge of safe when racing. The rear suspension is fixed, another words, there is no outer rear CV joint. So, the rear wheels follow the arc of the trailing arm, and in high speed corners when the car's weight is shifted, it positive camber's a whole bunch. Whoa!. Pucker me timbers!. Not the greatest set up. What a ton of fun though... Surprisingly, I was on par with many "stock" small cars like stock Honda Civic's and stock Dodge Neon's. If the car was modified I was 5 seconds behind, if the car was REALLY modified I was 10-15 seconds behind, such as the sole purpose Corvettes and full race cars... What I noticed was all the other drivers could whittle times down with more runs and practice. I went flat out every time and just could not go any faster.... Most cars finished the course 89-97 seconds. My best was 102 seconds (on two wheels, stained drivers seat, and finger prints embedded in steering wheel ! ) hahaha For my Subaru 360 car that has so little...I felt like David conquered Goliath !

First start of new Triumph GT6 race engine
Update Warning: Do not use ARP rod bolts. I have had two rod bolt failures now due to the bolts backing out. I find that the finish on the threads is too smooth and may not mate properly with the female threads in the rod. Use your old rod bolt or some good grade 8 socket head cap screws.

I find that the finish on the threads is too smooth and may not mate properly with the female threads in the rod. Use your old rod bolt or some good grade 8 socket head cap screws. This is the very first (very gentle) start of our new high compression race engine. We have new Arias custom made forged pistons, a lightened fly wheel and a recurved distributor. It looks like we will make it to the vintage race a Lime rock park this Labor day!
