Happy 86 Day !!!!!!

Happy AE86 day to all you tragic’s like me.
I thought id do a quick re-cap of how much hell i have put this car through!


Unfortunately some of my early photo’s are pre social media so i cant access them right now.
This is the earliest photo i have of the car before i had started to really mess with it.

first skid

My first ever track outing at Mallala raceway the first engine died about 10 minutes after this shot was taken.
Oil starvation killed the bottom end bearings and i had to get towed home!

skidsFast forward a little bit on engine number two!
Still using a standard 16V 4age but lots more suspension modifications and better sized wheels.
As you can see the car is sitting a lot flatter through the corner.

Engine number three coming out for a power upgrade !

IMGP2054The problem child!
The engine conversion turned out to be long and drawn out but worth it in the end!


Although it was a long and drawn out process the new motor goes alright!!!
1.8L of 7AGE 20V goodness :)

paneledLastly how it sits now awaiting its final transformation back to street car duties !!

I hope you all have a great 86 day
