  1. This car is extremely fast. The car runs in Champ Car with no penalty points. We raced in it two races at Sebring and one at Daytona about 4 years ago. We put the car up while we were having the engine rebuilt and getting it back out there now. The cage and the car were built by a reputable fabricator in Pinellas Park, Florida. Dan Partelo Race Cars. Dan has been building circle track cars and Trans Am cars for about 20 years. He has maintained and stored the car for me since we built it. He is downsizing his shop and I am moving up into a Trans Am car. That motivates the sale of this car. Text or call to Five-Seven4-529-Four Six 33. Engine: Rebuilt LT Gen 2 engine 5.7 Liter. The engine was rebuilt by George Pills of Southern Style Racing Engines, also in Pinellas Park, FL. No hours on new engine except for break in and street Testing. The engine has been converted to a carburetor set up with a 600 CFM Carb. The original EFI and Optispark ignition was just not reliable in a racing setting. So we switched. Transmission and Drive train: T56 6 speed transmission. Rebuild history is not know but it works well. The drive-line features a Quartermaster 7.25” triple disk clutch and hydraulic throw out bearing. This clutch setup greatly reduces the rotational inertia of the assembly and makes the car accelerate great out of corners. You can burn the tires off the car in almost every gear. Rear is stock 3.55:1 ratio out of a later model 2004 Camaro which means torsion differential. Brakes: Car has antilock brakes. The rear end, spindles and brakes on this car came from a later model 2004 Camaro. These brakes are much larger than the original brake package. Car stops on a dime. Brake package is Stainless Steel Brakes pads and rotors. Suspension: The car is equipped with BMR Racing lower springs and sway bars. You can look it up on the web. So car handles very well. Other: Car includes VHF radio and track transponder. Have the original rear and some other spare parts. Great fast car that can take the lead in SCCA, ChampCar or track day racing.

  6. I'm getting ready to build my first chump car. I initially was going to run a neon but I already have an 83 trans am just sitting there and an engine and transmission from a truck taking up space in my garage. I realize the trans am is not the best candidate for an endurance racer and to make it worse it has to be an automatic. My youngest brother can't drive a stick and has been dealing with MS for a few years now and loves racing. He wants to do this so bad that I decided I'd foot the bill to build a car. My first question would be the engine that was in the trans am originally was a crossfire injected small block and a 700r4. The truck the engine came from is a 98 k1500 gmc with a vortec 350 and 4l80e. I've tried to figure out the swap math on it but the original engine is hard to find in the required conditions for the formula. Can anyone give me an idea if it will come with penalties and if so what would a suitable engine transmission replacement be for the car. The crossfire harness has been chopped up by the previous owner who put a carb on it. Next question is can a wheel wells be clearanced for a larger, wider tire? Thanks for any help and I wouldn't mind hearing advice from others who have run automatics as this I feel might be our biggest hurdle.
  7. Campaigning from the World Center of Racing, Lead Sled Racing started as a mediocre idea (it's all Mike's fault) and has blossomed into mediocre race results all while having a ton of fun, consuming too much alcohol, not properly saving for retirement, but most importantly meeting a lot of really great people along the way. Originally the brainchild of Mike, who posts as "Lead Sled", his intention was to get a bunch of old friends together to build and race a car. The original group had various levels of racing experience, some with quite a bit, some with zero. At the time, 2010, we had only heard of the citrus series, so our goal was to have a car complete for a 24 hour endurance race at PBIR. We needed a car... after mulling around some options, we determined that most of us have owned reasonably serious street cars and have ADD, so we need to be entertained - the car must be a V8. The only logical choice was a Lincoln Town Car. Why? Because it was free.... but it needed a motor.... Long before 50 page discussions on swap rules, long before "cheaty" was hip with the kids, back from an era when swaps were pure....... We knew the Lincoln MUST have a Vortec truck engine. Why? Because it was free. The original studly line up was: Mike Smith David Castello Tim Goeman Joe Pirtle Somewhere along the way our buddy Geoff Thompson joined the madness, and we also have a couple of "regulars" that drive with us as well, all of whom are friends or we met through Chump. Fast forward and here we are... 5 years and a lot of races later, we somehow have managed to not kill the Lincoln yet, oh but how we have tried - but she's a tough ol' girl and has served us well. Once some of the growing pains of the build and learning the nuances of endurance racing have come to pass, we have actually had reasonable results at some of the bigger field count races. Now there is a new addition to the Lead Sled stable, the Cage Gage Camaro. Technically it is a solo build, but I consider it part of the Lead Sled banner. Personally, I was extremely burnt out on racing, but this "silly" endurance racing has really grown on me and made me realize that I love racing for the sake of racing. Next thing you know, another car is in the works..... See everyone at the track!
