What is the purpose / use of your vr4?????

Hey guys I have been looking into doing some NASA type track days next year and I am optioning using the vr4. I'm not done with the build yet and it will spend 90% of the time on the street, but want to know how many of yawll actually drag/ road race your car. I do have an FC o could use and I'm leaning that way but another car means more parts and more issues

I primarily use my car to keep my friend's lift occupied. But once it's not hanging out there it'll be used for a weekend car that is designed more towards road race use. I'm still hoping to tick off 11's (one 11 second timeslip and I'm done down the quarter). Should be fun

I daily drive my GVR4 and drag race it as much as I can. (I'm likely the most dragstrip oriented/active member of the board). My GVR4 is currently somewhat of a testbed for my DSM dragrace project.

Once, maybe if I'm lucky twice per year, I pull the cover off of the Maroon Car, jump start it, and drive it down to Atco to beat the piss out of it. Then I drive it home, and promptly put the cover back on it and let it go back to sleep. Hasn't been inspected since 06 and I couldn't care less. It serves its purpose.

The purpose of my VR-4 is to be a project car, up until the point where my daily driver Camry's tranny dies, then the VR-4 magically transforms back into my daily driver. The rest of the time it functions to make my therapist more money.

Re: What is the purpose / use of your vr4?????

I got mine because I regretted ever getting rid of my last one and I was trying to cut expenses by getting rid of a car payment. Its my spring/summer/fall daily driver. I keep the boost level moderate and the modifications mild. I've built cars past the point of daily fun and I no longer desire that. Aesthetics and reliability are my goal with this car.

Oh and wop, I don't doubt for a second the vr4 pulls tail, my white, blue and silver ones have always been adored by ladies for being "a wolf in sheep's clothing" for some reason the second I knock the head off a mustang from a stop and they hear the turbo and feel the get up and gone of the launch, they're sold.

Re: What is the purpose / use of your vr4?????

I am relinquishing the use of my 11 second 2003 Lancer Evolution to my wife in order to use my 1992 Galant VR4, 379 of 1000 as my daily driver. The Evo will only be faster than the Galant for so long. This action of ours serves many functions. First, my wife is cool as hell so she deserves to drive a cool car. It allows us to get rid of the Turbo S Beetle she has had for many years. A main point of consideration was that it puts only 4G63 powered cars in the driveway, which is the way it should be in my opinion. This single fact is a major point for me, considering my ability to repair and maintain them. My ownership of 4G63 powered cars has gone into the double digits and my experience with them is now well into its second decade. Even so, I am humble about learning new things, such as my alternator issue recently.

Contrary to many internet speculators, I have found the 4G63 powered cars to be the most reliable, highest performing cars made. If I was not into going fast, I'd just buy Honda's and be done with it. But for ease of repair, cost, reliability and overall dollar per HP, the 4G63 cannot be beat. That is the purpose of my VR4.

Side note. I do own a Subaru WRX that I regretfully have not put back together. Once it and the Beetle have gone their way, I am buying another car. An Evo II imported out of Canada.
