    Hi everyone new user here.
    Not good at starting these off so it might be awkward.
    Ill start off when some facts.
    From the PNW! Around the Seattle area.
    Drive a 1998 Saturn SW2 with a...automatic transmission(don't hate lol)
    10+ years with Linux.
    Programming as a hobby.
    Future racer (LOL)
    In all seriousness though.. it would be pretty cool to have a tuned and built Saturn for down hill racing.
    Not sure how to end this post so.....

    Welcome.

    Let us know what your goals are for the car and we can help get you started in the right direction.
    And the right direction starts with taking the autotragic trans and letting it roll down the side of a mountain.
    You'll thank us later.

    The first goal is to fix the car, lol!. After that, I'm not sure what steps to take yet.. I don't enjoy racing on a straight away, but I like cornering a lot. I think my second goal, if the car is financially fixable, would be to build the car for downhill racing.
    I know its fwd, but they have Honda civics built for cornering on tracks so I guess its possible with any fwd?

    Does this qualify as "downhill racing"? If so then one goal achieved!

    2001 SL1 MT (415K km, 10-2008 to present)

    Past
    1993 SW2 AT (03-2000 to 04-2010)

    Any drive configuration setup correctly can handle well, whether its FWD/RWD/AWD.

    Start looking into H&R or Eibach springs, KYB struts and a thicker rear swaybar.
