Well we've been messing with this all winter, but we got to drive it today for the first time.
It's a 1993 Ford Festiva. Dry weight stock is around 1800lbs. We replaced the engine with a 1.8liter Miata motor, and put in a 5 speed manual we scoured from a Ford Aspire. We also replaced the struts with those from a Kia and cut 3 coils of each front spring.
In racing trim, the car should weigh around 1600lbs and have 130-140HP.
More pics and videos to come.
