Porsche 911E: Race Ready!

Posted in Customer Cars, Fabrication, Roll Cages, Services, Shop Projects with tags , , , , , on June 11, 2010 by dominationchassis

race ready porsche 911This beauty came to us in need of a roll cage and fuel cell mount for weekend racing. The ’71 911 E, with its self-supporting bodywork, front independent suspension on transverse links and damper struts, longitudinal torsion bars, rear independent suspension on lateral links and transverse torsion bars, make it a classic choice for weekend SCCA racers across the country.

‘”They’ve got faster, all three of them”, promised an English Porsche brochure showing the 911 models (911 S, 911 T and 911E of 1970). In fact a capacity increase from two to 2.2 litres had increased the performance of the engines in the 911 T, E and S models, but the torque gain was predominantly responsible for increased thrust at the lower speeds.’ -Porsche.com

We installed a custom roll cage and fuel cell mounts and brackets, but not prior to removing the interior dash and seats to make sure they stayed clean while we enhanced the 911’s safety features. Scroll down for more photos of the project, and see even more on our main site, Domination Chassis.

Well it looks like the light at the end of the tunnel is finally coming into view. We are finishing up the details on the noSPARK Rally TDI Golf. Fuel lines and pump have been run, the SCCA approved FuelSafe cell is in and the frame for it is built, the skid plate has been made and everything is undercoated.

This car will be ready for the Sandblast Rally in South Carolina on Feb. 6th. So if you’re going to be there, be sure to check it out!

On with more pics!

Next up on the list at the shop is a 2000 Volkswagen Golf Rally Car.  This car came in for some body work and suspension work.  We have something special in the works for the rear suspension including a multi-link setup.

This is the current project in the shop which is in the final stages of build. It is a MKIII kit car from Factory Five Racing (http://www.factoryfive.com).

This car is powered by a 4.6L 4V S/C V8 from a 2003/2004 Ford Mustang Cobra. Factory ratings on this motor are around 375/375 hp/tq. This should be a pretty stout vehicle when finished. Here are a couple of shots:
