These hillclimb cars seem to have the perfect formula: a lot of horsepower + a lot of aero + forced induction = a terrifying symphony of speed, flames and turbo noises.

What is your dream hillclimb build?

That GTR is totally biting your Lemons Fox vibe.  Time for a cease and desist! cheeky

That particular Alfa is a 75, but is known here in the states as a Milano.  Which is one of the more successful Champ/LeMons cars out there, apparently.  We didn't get the I4 in that car, but mostly a 2.5l V6, some 3.0l V6's.  We had one for about a year.

Awesome to see hillclimb coverage!  I made a video series about my own rookie season doing scca hillclimbs in a budget rx8.  Between autocross,  rallycross,  karting, track days,  and time attack,  I've never had more fun.  I don't think there's anything on four wheels that matches charging up a dangerous mountain road on cold tires against the clock.   There's the pressure to perform immediately of autocross with the speed of time attack,  with more danger than either.
