Pretty good for what was originally a fat, lumbering vehicle. What a transformation, even with a goofy wing and cobbled together splitter. Murdered a lot of cones anyway- probably from the too-wide splitter over-reach, but that's expected collateral damage during life at the track.
Looked like a lot of fun, though.
I stumbled on the guy's videos a few weeks ago when he posted that he bought the track. Local drag photo guy I know shared the video and I thought it was pretty cool. He is up near Superior WI so only a couple hours away for me. He is right about there not being much for tracks in that area of the country.
I chatted with the Cutlass guy in '19 at the Car Craft show when it was still semi stock looking. Mild olds 350 and a mustang 5 speed running the autocross. It was NOT that intense (sans wing and splitter). It had super basic suspension stuff on it at the time and demolished a lot of the big dollar suspension parts cars. He literally just had speedway dirt car tubular uppers cranked in for max camber, tall lower ball joints and moderate performance oriented tires. It has undergone a COMPLETE redo in the last 2 years.
Agreed with the asthetics, BUT, they're also using a base cutlass as their starter vehicle so again, better choices...I understand it’s a purpose built race car, but just can’t get over the ridiculous shopping cart handle wing and the plywood splitter. I mean seriously, he could’ve done better there.
That being said, major kudos for running an Olds engine. Looks like the UMI Performance Green Machine just might have some competition. Also would sound so much cooler with a turbo spooling up between shifts and a wastegate blowing off.
