Arouse the DAMPFHAMMER!
With these old chassis one can learn handling a car very quick.I can appreciate the cars that need a real driver behind the wheel👍
I started with a 720 kg FWD chassis hill climb races with just 60 hp on stock tires, which was way enough. I did much suspension, toe and chamber adjusting so that I finally had a FWD who was able to drift into corners to keep the front wheels on grip as long as possible. This was an amazing experience.And this is why i stick with Front wheel drive. I don't have the skills for a good car so i need the easiest car to drive to stay on the road.
This was a newer version of my 60 hp race car. This is '92 Opel Corsa A GSI with a 8V head and an EFI system, just 120 [email protected], but 700 kg gave one an beasty BMW, Audi, Porsche, and so on annoying reminder, power is not everything. Especially on serpentines, that beast was nasty fast. That car was great fun and I drove it when I was studying at around 43 mpg. A K-series under that hood would have made it a Porsche killer. It never came to an engine swap. I lost it '99 in the flood. There was a lot of sand and mud in all corners, oil system, gearbox. My family had a quarter million Euro damage on the farm. No time and money for reman, sold it to one who took it to Greece. Maybe it still drives around...
...anyway, FWD cars can be a challenge to drive. Especially if they have a K-series on board.
