We can have an MR2......... I have my eye on one. My buddy has one I'm buying for parts. He told me of one for sale in his area. We can get them both in one pic at his place and He'll write a little receipt for both. The one I'm getting for parts is $600. The other is going for 4 or 500 bucks. I'll get the one for parts, can  y'all get the other?

Ideas on combatting understeer. Use lower profile tire with stiffer sidewalls. Do the old school  drifter trick on the swaybars, double 'em up. Stiffer springs, not too stiff though, from an MR2 or Celica or Camry or............ Just needs to fit the spring perches. We can trim for ride height. Need to research shocks. Need to fit in stock tubes, maybe a little shorter stroke. I would like to use KYB gas-adjust or a non-adjustable Tokiko. Any one know where to get the specs on shock bodies??

Seats, windows, interior, lighter battery, bumpers, hatch, sound deadening material, lights, unecessary wiring, cut out excessive metal from doors and sides of car, weatherstripping, exhaust, unecessary emissions equipment, seat belts,  I think we should keep the power steering though. Since the event takes place in December, I'd like to keep some form of a heating system. We don't want to freeze and window defrost. I think we should use the MR2 seat. Our drivers vary a bit in size. Other than that, a cheap racing style bucket would be nice.

Haven't weighed it yet. As far as running with a 325e, I ran against a 325i in the 2 and beat it. I also ran down another 325i that followed my wife home one time, that was in the 86 I sold to Kevin. For comparison, other cars that were unable to keep up with the 2 include Sentra SER, Datsun 260Z, V6 Camry, 240SX, Fraud Muscrat (that was a fun one). Afew others that tried, but weren't memorable.Most of the vehicles up here can't even keep up with my Taco, and those are the ones that do make an attempt.

Most FWD cars come with the same 4x100mm bolt pattern. Have to be careful though, the hub bore can be wrong for your car. Too small just won't fit. Too big will require hubcentric rings. A few cars to mention, Honda, VW, Mini, Nissan, jusi have to look around. Have to watch the offset too.

Using the MR2 wheels will limit the tire width to a 195 or 205 width tire. The 205 may exceed the width of the rim. 195 would give the best sidewall rigidity by keeping the walls closer to parallel. With the 195, an aspect of 55 would do best, 205, 50.

Suggestion for car theme

Make the thing look like it's held together with bailing wire and duct tape. With loose pieces of tape flying around like streamers. Drill series of 1/16" holes to pull wire through to make it look like the car is stitched together with wire.
Paint a big bright yellow YEE HAW  on the sides and hood of the car.

Car #246

Might be able to get monetary assistance somewhere down the road from the union hall. Plumbers local #246.


Paint car like a tortoise............ With a bright yellow YEE HAW on the hood and sides of the car. Dragging a set of large stuffed rabbits (hares) feet under the car.

I have a 9lb flywheel, cams, springs, big throttle body, headers, small port head and manifold. I would prefer using the small journal crankshaft, but I have a set of con-rods from a silvertop 20v. I might consider using my wiseco pistons too. Can we make a 140-150 hp engine?? Looking on e-bay, I found an OBX(Pronounced china cheep) LSD. Helical gear torque sensing type. Trying to get an idea of what torque split it has. About $400 shipped. 
With the exception of the LSD, these are items I'm considering donating to the cause.

Make the spoiler with plywood, actuated by a cable attached to the brake pedal.
