Awesome stuff. What times?
With the new setup setup and a repaired diff I expect it to be around 58-60 seconds with a bit of setup. That and me learning to drive that quick around there.
Well fuck me. Nice car mate.

Sweet ride, did it take you long to summon up the courage to start cutting?

its like the whole history of the evolution of Sports Sedans, but in one car!
What made you go for the 2JZ? Apart from the nevah loooz factor? Surely something else that was aluminium blocked would have been better for a circuit car in terms of power to weight ratio and weight distribution? Or was the swap based more on durability and ease of upgrades/getting replacement parts?
What does it weigh now?
I think this is another perfect example of the PF attitude. -I need to do a gearbox swap so I'll turn my car into a sports sedan, including the obligatory 2JZ
Weight is definately not an issue. The car has 50-50 weight distribution and only weighs 900kg with me in it. Considering for the motor size I have to weigh 1175kg I'm going to have to put 275kg of ballist in the car. So there is no real need to have a light motor.
Are you planning on doorhandle to doorhandle circuit racing, or things like supersprints, time attack, hillclimbs, etc in sport sedan spec classes?

Speed events don't come under Targeted Scrutiny , so any ballast would not need to be fitted.....just safety checked & Log Book signed off.
can run @ 900kg in all Speed events.
The first part about having a cheap, simple engine combo that has enough power to keep up with SBC's makes perfect sense.
I know this isn't an RB but seeing as corner speeds and braking will be much more severe than your average streeter, have you done anything to the oiling system?
should get 1.7-1.8 cornering g's going off other sports sedans.
I'm just here to say this thing is awesome.
At every stage it's just an awesome ride.
Makes me want to go out and get an escort. Sir Rev's old blue one was a monster.
Just a question, what does this weight?
tough piece of kit, love it!
It's coming along now. Not much more to go before it's running again.
Great work - speedflow obsession?
Wow. Just... Wow.
That is all.....
