Dallas Makerspace Motorsports
Our goal is to educate and promote automotive knowledge and car culture, by facilitating both a safe place to work on vehicles and organizing projects, events, and classes related to vehicles.
We have a 1994 Nissan 240SX, tastefully modded from stock. It has a full rollcage, harness and safety systems required by most tracks.
We learn a lot during DMS Motorsports events, cars have a funny way of breaking in ways you don’t expect, so learning how to diagnose systems is a major benefit. We also teach classes on alignment and suspension. We experiment with brakes, sway bars, air-fuel mixtures and more. We’re hoping to have more classes than ever in 2018
We put all of our training and knowledge to the test at various race events throughout the year. The core race being “24 Hours of Lemons” in November. It’s hosted at the MSR Houston track. You can watch an awesome 360 video of the track taken from our car.
DMS Motorsports is always looking for more people of all skills, our large goals this year are something like:
- Car maintenance (oil pan, sway bar, alignment)
- Car design (we want a fancy new design for the new year)
- Drivers (new and experienced)
- Attend more races
If you’re even slightly interested or you’d like to get to it and start making stuff, we meet almost every Thursday at 7PM. Either by the car lift or inside one of the classrooms. We’re going to be formalizing our meetings soon. You can also talk to any of our members you see around the space!
