Last update I heard, car was overheating stuck TSTAT. They removed and it was still overheating. I recommended drilling the tstat. Haven't had an update since. If they didn't fix the overheating they were just going to drive it till it died.......

Here is how you fix an overheating LeMons car...or at least how we fixed ours. The temp gauge barely got off the peg after we added this beauty.

Pretty sure the injectors were stuck and flowing at full fuel or something. That amount of smoke in the straghts is bad

Why is the parts car bumper on that beemer?

That's the bumper from our car. One of the times that we had to get towed off the track, they pulled the bumper off and said "Oh there's your tow hook!" The tow truck driver dropped the bumper off at the judging station.

That car is one of the Piranha Rentals E30s(they had a pair). As one of their black flag penalties, they had to weld that bumper to the roof. The guys at Piranha Rentals rock. They fed the whole race from their own personal camp and sung, danced and partied til 2a each morning. Without them, we would have never passed tech inspection.
