If I really get the urge to chop one up, it will be a semi-rusty non-WRC from europe.

But I already have a rusty ST185 to chop up, so I most likely will be getting my energy out there.

Did you bleed the clutch?

I'm keeping my mods reversible, but mine didn't come with a stock suspension or exhaust, so I couldn't turn it back to 100% OEM without great effort, which I'm not willing to put in.

I"m not going to go and chop up the body for a rocketbunny kit, but I'm not going to stress about the rolled fenders and little things.

It's going to get beat up on track anyway.

Slow down Chee...

OP: Start with shifter bushings

If that doesn't help, and/or your gear selector ON the trans has excessive play, you should replace the "Sugar Cube"

After that, I would look at the shifter cables, THEN get to more labor intensive work....

I saw your video Alex.

If the ECU is firing the plugs right, then your only real remaining avenue is fuel. Your wideband was showing 14-16, wasn't it?

Will is start on starting fluid?

It's calling itself a 7gen owners group. I won't try to join.

Post pics here if you can!

I'm sorry bro, but we're out for this one.

I'm looking forward to seeing pics of this though.

*phew*

I thought I was losing it for a minute... I was like, "I was JUST with Luke, I think I would recognize him in a photo, even if he is out of focus"

I would look at the AR or AZ engines out of the Scion TC. More torque than the ZZ out of the 7g celica.

Either way, you are in unorthodox swap territory. It may be cheaper just to get another cheap daily, until you can figure out your situation with the Celica.

I've always thought it would be cool to do.

Looking forward to see where you take it!

Why does that look more like Luke and less like you Chee?

I would go with an MZ for a build like this. You want reliability, but you can't go to Autozone and pick up replacement parts for a BEAMS.

Plus, with what you are planning to do, it seems like your formula is backwards: you'll need more TQ than HP. BEAMS are rev happy, but not so torque-y, you may have issue with the extra drag of a 4WD drivetrain.

In the end, it's your car, your $$, and a cool build either way. I can't wait to see which direction you go!

Track day

I went to Autobahn Full Course with Luke yesterday. Have a couple of pics that I’ll upload tomorrow.


Some clean racing lines there ��


Skiff was a good guide. Now I just need to get the speed built up.

$300 because we registered for the event last week... lol

That's not terrible. I'm about 110% sure, after watching that, I would be an impediment to traffic out there. laugh.gif


I was one of the slower cars in the field, for sure. Corners is where the car shined. But when you're running with vettes, vipers, and BMWs all over 400hp, not much you can do on those long straights.

At least I managed to get a little bit of heat into the tires



Parting shots:

That I don't know.

I'm in IL, so I didn't have to deal with any CARB certs.

The Rapist Celica indeed. laugh.gif


I knew you, of all people, would like that. My buddy thought is was a funny correlation to Initial D.

Autobahn ,that is on my backyard, but I was out of town.Next time you guys go , let me know.


It won't be until next season. I was lucky enough that Stacy let me get this one in on such short notice, but we will let you know!
