So, What About The Porcubimmer?

Illustration for article titled So, What About The Porcubimmer?

We followed the exploits of LTDScott and his Team Porcubimmer during the run-up to the 24 Hours of LeMons race at Altamont, and some of you are probably wondering how it went for the "Pricks Outside" guys when the real deal went down. Well, we have good news and bad news for you: the good news is that the car looked amazing (as did the coordinated team outfits), but the bad news is that a cascade of mechanical woes kept the Porcubimmer off the track for much of the weekend. Fuel system, clutch, you name it. When it was on the track, however, it was fast; for a glorious- if regrettably short- time on Saturday, the spiky 325e was in the #1 position. Take heart, Porcubimmer fans- we're pretty sure we haven't seen the last of this car's angry face! []

@junk: Wouldn't have helped much as the clutch and/or trans gave out soon after.

@makeopalypse: Indeed you did. I was seriously questioning the hood mounted radiator at first, and the fact that you were towing the car on a two-wheel dolly (I passed you going over the Grapevine), but I guess slow and steady wins.... err... finishes the race! Although next time you might want to consider mounting an orange triangle on the back of your car so people can more easily pass you :)
