Wicked Hot Full-Race R14 Confirmed For Modified Tuner Shootout
Full-Race is a next-level fabrication company; its tubular manifolds belong at the Smithsonian as much as under the hood of your Supra, Civic or EVO. Needless to say, we're more than excited to have the Full-Race R14 in the upcoming Modified Tuner Shootout. Full-Race has been an ardent supporter of the Shootout, finishing second the last two years in heavily modified street Subarus and Mike Speck, former Modified columnist (Driver Training), will be at the controls.
The R14 is a fairly famous slate-gray Nissan S14 240SX with a Skyline GT-R engine and AWD driveline pumping the adrenaline glands. The RB26DETT is force fed by a single BorgWarner S300SX 88-75 turbo. All the tricks, parts and know-how to convert S14-vinatge 240s into AWD GT-R impersonators is allegedly going into a DIY conversion kit that Full-Race plans to offer in 2010.
The car, which Full-Race owner Geoff Raicer drives on the street, will be totally reworked for time attack abuse at the Shootout. We're talking about front and rear subframes fully converted to hyper adjustable race-spec stuff, spherical bearings, heim joints, custom control arms - the whole enchilada. Geoff says he plans to take the car down a notch or two after the competition and get back onto the street, where it can be enjoyed on a daily basis. He's hinting at building one of the shop's S14 shells as a full-tilt time attacker. You go, Geoff!
