Ford Escort GT

RallyX Beater purchased via the GRM $2008 Classifieds ( http://archive.grassrootsmotorsports.com/board/viewtopic.php?id=33024 ). Came with Tokico Blues, Eibach lowering springs, no rear sway bar, & rusty everything. I’ve added MX-3 seats, Schroth Rallye4 Harness, & Miata daisies with old azenis for the street. Check out the link to more photos to see the classic escort strut mount rust. 8/20 Update: Now with louder (stock) exhaust thanks to partially blown out gasket just past the catalytic converter. Finished first in PF class at two day rallycross this weekend. 09/03 Update: Timing belt snapped tonight. Hopefully will be back on the road next week for the OVR Divisional Rallycross next weekend. 09/26 Update: Crank pulley keyway has major wear (aka Miata crank snout issue). Car is currently sitting in parents barn as I ponder whether to fix or scrap the car. 10/05 Update: The current plan is to do the Miata.net locktite fix on the crank and run the car in M2 next season.Started gutting the interior this weekend. Who knows, maybe I could make it to the challenge too if the stars align.

Now with MX-3 seats! They sit a good 3" lower so no more rubbing my noggin on the headliner.

Cool action shot. I like the spoiler too. Very racey.
