Sal's rebuild thread

I saw this posted on FB today and thought I'd bring it over here before I take off for the day. Again, many props to Sal for staying with it and already digging into the car to rebuild and make further improvements.



Originally posted by LX90 from YellowBullet.com

We finally made it over to Drummond race cars last night to start tearing down the car and assessing the damage. We were expecting a broken rear or half shaft, however we found no failure to and rear end or driveline components. We can only chock it up to marginal track conditions due to low temperatures and dew setting in. Looking back at the logs we found that there was just a total loss of traction at the gear change. We've gone ahead and pulled the engine and transmission to get a better look at the frame. Looks like we are going to be replacing the frame from the firewall forward, as well as all the left side suspension components. Lucky for us vipers come from the factory with a pretty stout double frame rail. None of the damage made it to the engine or turbos. At this point we plan to make a few upgrades, and try and loose some weight. 3710 is to damn heavy. We are gonna try and have the car back out next season better then before.



The aftermath...

That's just a scratch compared to some of the Vipers that have been in my shop. Easy peasy....

Nothing a hammer, some duct tape, zipties, and bondo won't fix. Oh, and some good rubbing compound.

Painful to look at. But I'm sure it will be back lighter and more powerful.
