Still doing dumb things

Just because you're older doesn't mean you need to grow up...


Turning a Z4 into a tow vehicle because you don't want to spend $650 on the euro-version hitch? Check.

"Yeah but what do you need to pull with a Z4..."?

Bike rack, kayaks, and the occasional diet race car. You know the Exocet? The exoskeletal rocket built on a Miata? Well not that - that's for rich people.

We'll go with a Ghettocet, the home-made version, powered by a KLZE. <1500 lb, 200-ish bhp initially, 300-ish bhp with a junkyard supercharger. That's kind of my level. Probably done by end of 2018.

"Still doing dumb things"

I looked through the thread and pics and wasn't able to find a single "dumb thing"

Keep it up

Dan do you still have the RWD probe? Any idea if Ray still has the RHD 323? I miss you having a build thread going in here, ha.

Nice to see you're still working on that project! I have slight aspirations to take the motor out of the PGT and throw it in a MG Midget... similar idea to this!

I believe KLZE Porsche posted one years ago of a 914 Porsche with a KL in the back. Looked mighty tasty.
