So you're going doorless? laugh.gif
Just kidding. I see that you're going to be welding a panel on there instead of having an actual door.

In regards to LSD vs weld. I recommend welding as it's Just plain better on the dirt. After 3 celicas an 5 years of racing on the dirt there is no comparison as Welded trans will outperform LSD. The one caveat is each tracks rules. Some say no welded. However most tracks don't check or even care to enforce the rules. I have run some very small tracks an ur concerns in regards to tight turns r valid for a welded diff but even the 1/4 mile tracks r not an issue. Key is tires an suspension. The super strut is great but not worth the headache. The unreliability is a fact. If I get thru this season without a wheel coming off I will be surprised. It was good to test it out but going back to stock cause I need parts an finding them will be an issue an not worth the expense. Sorry I have been MIA. Will post up some pics soon an give me a call with any questions. I have built 3 of these an can give u a lot of pointers. Maybe we can race at Tyler county next spring.

If you're going to be at TYLER COUNTY i will most def be there. That's like an hour from my house. Where in general are you coming from?

But thanks for the heads up on the welded. I wouldn't have thought the difference would have been that much. Post up some pics of how your car looks.. Inside... outside.... fuel cell...we're trying to figure out what all we're gong to do with this one... make it look like a late model maybe LOL

The tracks around here say that welded differentials are allowed... so I think I"m good there.

Sounds good on racing in the spring at Tyler County. I race at all around western PA and Western MD.

I will round up some pics but if you pull my old build thread you can see the cage install. We have been using the same cages for the other cars. I fabricated a trick quick disconnect for the steering wheel retaining the stock steering wheel and I recommend retaining the power steering vs eliminating it. Only run OEM axles....rebuilds from advanced will last about one race. Im running stock fuel tank vs a fuel cell.

I've just had a thought. I know the BEAMS and 5S use the same 190 lph fuel pump, but considering how much time you will spend at WOT or at least above 50% throttle, you might consider a new fuel pump. I know the stock fuel pump takes a second to build pressure back up, so a newer fuel pump might not be a bad thing. Low fuel pressure is never a good thing. Of course, I'm sure you've already thought of this since you're two steps ahead of me

The cage is looking great! I'd love to make it up to the race between you two. Keep me updated and I'll check my schedule!
