What year Lightning do you have? What mods, if any, have you done?Hi yes I am a new member to this group. But I do have questions. I am interested in building my Lightning for amateur road racing. The threads that I am seeing are quite old. Is there anybody still active hear that might be able to answer my questions?
Sorry I work a lot, 2002, I am in the heads process, lower complete, putting an Eaton on and a killer chiller. Once back otr I will be of course doing others depending if I am just going to drive or race like I want.What year Lightning do you have? What mods, if any, have you done?
you did road race it?The biggest area to address in either generation is the brakes, following closely by transmission cooling. The brakes have a ton (or two) of work to do to haul these heavyweights down over and over again.
The stock rotors from my Gen 1 had radial cracks all over them when I finally changed to aftermarket brakes. I'd burn the binders out of the pads on my Gen 2, even with high temperature/severe duty pads.
I boiled transmission fluid out of the vent on both generations.
