RT 10 Track cars??

Any pics or info on some dedicated or close to rt 10's??

I track mine but not often enough and im slowly going to build it slightly more for the track as it is near impossible to get a GTS in aussie land and i cant see the point of selling up to get one.

i found this so far:

If all I had was my RT/10 to track I wouldn't do much in the way of rollbars and all that other safety crap. I'd enjoy it just the way it is and do open track events. Play around with some performance mods and that would be it.

But if you wanna compete you'll have to cage it and all that other expensive shit. Is that your objective?

In that case I'd stick with brake mods, suspension mods and durability mods before doing much in the way of engine mods.

1. CHANGE FLUIDS REGULARLY AND FREQUENTLY.

2...
Aluminum steering pump pulley. Mine broke on the track.
Aluminum steering pump bracket.
Replace the high pressure hose - Mine started leaking at the track.
Differential drain plug modification. - Makes life easier and gets more dirt out.
Grind down the screws near the coolant recovery bottle so they don't puncture the bottle.
Aluminum radiator - ask Dave666 for suggestions. I don't recall which brand I have.
Penske shocks. - Awesome.
295 - 315 front wheels. You wont stick the turns without a bigger front wheel.
Scale it for ideal corner weighting. Huge benefits in braking and cornering.
Brakes - SRT or Stoptech or Tom's rear caliper mod.
Brake pads - you'll have to play around with to see what works for you.
Brake cooling ducts - you'll need a 3-1/8 inch hole saw and some zip ties.
Plugs and wires once a year. - Cheap and they do deteriorate so replace them.
Hennessey style airbox. Dean felt that it gave him a couple extra mph at the end of the straights. Deano knows his shit.
3" exhaust. No brainer.
Headers - but it will be loud for a street car.
If your 97 still has the stock rear transmission mount it is probably near the end of it's life. When it fails it will make shifting difficult. Woodhouse has a competively priced replacement.
The stock stick also has rubber that will fail and make shifting difficult.
There is a thread going about poly bushings. Find that for steering rack and control arm bushing upgrades. I don't think I'd go with aluminum or monoballs for a street car.
Get a spare T-56. They're great trannys but nothing lasts forever. They can be rebuilt but I don't like to wait around.

Today's competition is in the 600hp range but I'd do the above before doing too many hp mods.

There is a power steering cap drain upgrade that probably wouldn't be a bad idea. The cap can work loose, spill fluid and catch fire. I put a pipe wrench on my cap and haven't had a problem but the cap doesn't look so pretty now that it is scared up by the wrench.

I bought a catch can for the power steering whereas the hose to it goes on the nipple on top of the power steering pump reservoir cap, and holds the cap tight. Probably overkill in some respects, but the selling point from Big Brake Dave (rip) was that the simple Roe tube that everyone uses, if it pukes out that tube, it still dumps all over the hot headers. Just lower down, which I suspect is better, but still hot fluid on hot headers.

I purchased my RT from a couple who used to race in Viper Days. A few other things I am going to add:

Upgraded differential...mine has a Quaife
Pin the crank pulley
Facia air cooling duct
Autoform Development sells a rollbar for the RT

Have fun and post some pictures! Here are some pictures of mine before I removed the stickers etc.
