GULP! Your Corolla is awesome!

I'm at the changeover point where I am done with my Toyota AE86 Corolla, which is sold and just pending delivery/pickup, and have started tearing into my newly-purchased JDM EA21R Suzuki Cappucino. The Cappo suffered a rusty brake line failure while loading it up on the trailer (but after doing the paperwork) so getting the brakes working is the first order of business.

This may not go over well here. (Not a fast car) But I've been working on this for 10 years. Completely custom, it's supposed to look like a HEMTT. It's got air ride and turbo diesel. It's all torn apart for paint right now. Might be done in six months. For reference, the tires are about 4 feet tall.

Eden, that thing is sweet!

Someone may have just made a deal on 390hp worth of Jaguar.

I posted my Cuda build on transmission section. Looking for options. 1970 Cuda. Bought as rolling body. Car campaigned as a Pro Stock/ Modified Stock in the mid 70s. It was a small car lot and garage dream to try to race the big boys of the day. (Dick Landy, Sox Martin. Ect...) But that effort (like most) fell short of expectations. So motor and trans were sold off in early 80s. Been a roller ever sence.

Current build effort? Pro Street. Engine. 904ci DOHC Schubeck marine engine. 1200 HP at 5200 RPM. 1000+ ft/lbs torque at little under 3000 RPM. N/A on pump 91 gas. Looking for manual transmission options? I don't believe Tremec has any 5/6 speed that can handle this monster. I do have a JW Ultrabell Power Glide that can handle. But they heat up fast with any limited street use. If anything new out there? I'm all ears.

Looking around. Alot of unique builds happening. The only benefit from a time of pandemic is time on projects. JMO

My buddy at Tremec says their transmissions are in very powerful TT Vipers. That's all I've got.

oh, and sick cuda! I'm a huge MoPar fan.

I believe Tremec is getting close. And they certainly recognize the gap that today's HP builds have created in transmission options.

Even the electric cars are feeling. Electric cars torque curve is even more severe. They of course can govern power more easily. But what fun is that? In racing? Recipe for losing.

I turned my dedicated C Street class autocross 986 S into a Sport 4 class Time Trial car in a week, entered my first TT, and won my class:

Starting 1 of 2 builds. Destiny wants a 5cyl Volvo Turbo White Block to be placed into 1 of my 2 engineless rigs.

A) 47 Willys backed by a T18 as a small wayyyy overpowered fun rig. Packaging is terrible, would be a poor fit for what I want it to do... but very cool. Aim for 33s and pseudo light offroad rig/farm utv. Small diesel (TDI/kubota) or heck even a 4cyl red block would be way better but does logic get to have all the fun? 


First AW30-40 bellhousingto 70s T18 adapter ever...?


2) 2nd Gen 4runner. Originally automatic so using a 960 bellhousing I can literally bolt it to an A340 and stuff it in the engine bay. 7M's fit so one less cylinder should be cake... or something. 230ish hp 2nd gen would be cool.. not flatfender cool but still. Very useful as a camping expo rig, backup DD etc.. generally the safer logical choice.

New here, in second week of a project I've been planning for a long time: 1987 VW Syncro to something reliable and capable to take on trails.  Vehicle was last on the road in 2002, has under 90k miles (if the odometer works), and likely has a head leak.

Trying to post a picture, but the preview has a comical aspect ratio shift.

This is the good side. There is a bad side.
