Team NAXJA/Petty Cash new XJ LeMons racer

I ran across a '92 2wd 5 speed XJ and just couldn't resist buying it. We're racing it at Buttonwillow Raceway this weekend.






The lock cylinder was gone, and the steering wheel off, and part of the dash out, and the windshield broken, which helped to get it cheap enough.

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash new XJ LeMons racer

We stripped it down to just the sheetmetal, took out all the glass except the windshield, and started building a cage and seat mount.







We're using the stock wiring and gauge cluster to keep it simple.





Getting the yellow paint on first, and then the blue. And of course, the big wing. We got some Mustang GT 17" wheels, which will be getting grippy 245/45 R17 Falken Azenis RT-615K tires.

Nice! Pretty soon, there will be an entire family of blue and Yellow Jeeps all over the place!

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash new XJ LeMons racer

Isn't the theme here "make people in sportscars mad by out-driving them on the track in an SUV"?

(while having a blast racing, of course)

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash new XJ LeMons racer

They should put in small letters "unless you're in a BMW, then you just owned a jeep with a roof wing...."


And Richard, a clean set of Bullit wheels should go for at least $500. Makes more sense to sell them and get some $75 pony wheels. More money for your budget.

Petty blue paint and a stupid wing is plenty of theme. And, you maybe don't realize just how serious crap can car racing really is.

I like those wheels too, just sayin. no sense in blowing your budget on cosmetics when you only have $500 to spend.

Wheels/tires, brakes, safety stuff, etc don't apply to the budget.



I'm digging it, it would be hilarious seeing both of them out there against each other too.

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash new XJ LeMons racer

Just my opinion, but I think it needs an E30 theme.
