Lemons Car Ver 2.0

After running our 1991 Escort in 6 Lemons races we have decided to upgrade. Behold our new 240SX. It was being built as a Drift car so it is already caged and it came with a bunch of interesting bits and pieces. If anyone wants to buy a fully prepped Lemons Escort let me know! » 2/18/15 8:57pm 2/18/15 8:57pm

Ill-advised Engine Swaps: Jaguar V12

Now that I'm in Detroit, I've got several friends that want to help me build my LeMons car. From the magical place of craigslist comes this gem. This would be awesome, and it's only $1000. » 2/01/15 1:09pm 2/01/15 1:09pm

We finished!

Here's a little trailer for our upcoming 24 Hours of LeMons video. Full video coming soon (hopefully before XMas). This time we managed to finish the weekend! » 12/10/14 11:14am 12/10/14 11:14am

Well that's not gone well.

After I bent up the front end on the back of a Miata, the hood pins failed for our next driver. This is coming over the crest into the carousel at Sonoma Raceway. Good times! » 12/09/14 3:18pm 12/09/14 3:18pm


Any Jalops/Opponauts going to be at the LeMons race in Sonoma this weekend? Stop by and say hello. The car will probably be in the above position all weekend. Still hoping for no rain, but it's looking unlikely. » 12/04/14 10:28am 12/04/14 10:28am

Here’s What American Endurance Racing At Lime Rock Park Looks Like

American Endurance Racing is the new kid on the block for low-buck motorsports. Based around simple rules and a "race what ya got" mentality, it's got lots of appeal to anyone who's ever raced 24 Hours of LeMons or Chumpcar. On an ass-clenchingly cold late November weekend, AER stormed into historic Lime Rock Park… » 11/26/14 5:14am 11/26/14 5:14am

24 Hours Of LeMons: This Time We Went Fast, Briefly

If anyone here remembers the Brooklyn Bomb Squad's not-so-triumphant LeMons race at New Jersey Motorsports park in the spring, it's time to grab a hankie and wipe away those tears. For we have returned from the Halloween Hooptiefest in New Hampshire with glory and dignity! No, we didn't win (HAAAAA! HAA!! No.) Nor… » 11/18/14 8:50am 11/18/14 8:50am

Cruising for LeMons cars

I have no intention of entering a LeMons race (logistics are a little tricky up in the Great White North) but hearing the guys on The Smoking Tire talk about the events and experiencing my first taste of track driving, I wanted to see what kind of cars might be available. Interesting choices. » 10/19/14 11:53pm 10/19/14 11:53pm

Any Opponauts at LeMons Thunderhill this weekend?

Was thinking of making the drive there on Saturday, and it would be fun to meet anyone else who's going. Anybody else? » 9/12/14 12:35am 9/12/14 12:35am

Woo Hoo!

Just started our LeMons car and ran it through the gears after having the engine out for a clutch change. No leaks and shifts smooth. Here is a pic of it from a previous race. #20 1991 Escort LX. » 9/11/14 9:57pm 9/11/14 9:57pm


The car is almost ready for our next LeMons race at Thunderhill (the new 5-mile course!) in a couple weeks. Just got a fresh coat of paint! Just need to slap the numbers on, do some corner weighting, and we're ready to rock. » 9/02/14 6:50pm 9/02/14 6:50pm

My Colleague Lives On The Same Street As Speedycop

And tells me things sometimes like, "I saw that Airplane car driving around again." and " There was some car upside down in his driveway the other day." » 8/08/14 9:05am 8/08/14 9:05am
