Team scR's New Car


James Walker (of Team scR Motorsports) had just finished construction of his new SCCA Improved Touring race car, a red SC2 beautiful in every detail.  James was using this open-lapping day at Gingerman Raceway as an opportunity to get a feel for the car and break in a few sets of tires before getting it out on the track during the 1999 season.  We all had the opportunity to take a close look at the car and ask a whole lot of questions.


The car (19k)

Rollcage (34k)Rollcage (34k)
The custom computer-modeled rollcage.

Seat (29k)

Form-fitting Recaro seat and 6-point harness.  The red tank for the Halon fire-supression system can be seen on the left.


Wheel & tire (34k)Engine (35k)

Enkei 15" RP-01 wheels, Hoosier 225-45-15 tires.  The engine compartment looks unassuming - not much of a hint of the monster that lurks within.  SPS supplies a great deal of parts for the car.   The picture shows Magnecor wires, Powerstack intake, filter, and strut-tower brace.

Exhaust flows though a stock Saturn header, custom downpipe, Borla race muffler, and a huge 3" exhaust pipe.  On the dyno, the engine actually made more horsepower with a muffler than without.


Exhaust (20k)

Front brakes/suspension (34k)Rear brakes/suspension (28k)

Brake cooling ducts, wheel spacers, longer lugs, adjustable firmness Koni strut inserts, adjustable ride-height custom coil-overs, 17mm rear sway bar, braided brake lines, and a super-clean underbody that I envy.
