    Drag Starion

    A few of you guys on here know me & the project, but here are the cliffs so far

    Goal is to run a 9 with the IRS in X235 Trim. They do a live axle conversion similar to Carey Bailes S2000.

    JA Starion (Number 007, making the oldest one in the country left, apparently it was a media car)

    Creatd Performance built 2.3l VR4
    Eagle Crank & Rods
    Wiseco Slugs
    Manley Valves & Springs
    Kelford Cms
    Magnus Drag Intake Manifold
    ASR Custom Sump
    Deatschwerks 2300cc Injectors
    NX Direct Port System
    Turbo atm is Garrett GT4088R
    Microtech LT12C, with bump box & Pro Boost
    LS Coils

    Diff/Alxes have been changed out for USDM Widebody units. There are larger "6 Bolt" shafts, bigger lsd diff (similar to a Mustang 8.8), 5 stud hubs (with ARP EVO Studs)

    Suspension is D2 (Dont laugh, they are the only company that make off the shelf suspension for them now), that has been re-valved and seals changed by Sydney Suspensions.

    Cage is a Bond Roll Bars Kit that has been modified and welded in by Stuey @ Steadfast Performance Garage.

    I'll let the pictures do the talking for now & add more later.

          That will be cool, but why old mate didn't aim those rear stays at the shock mount is beyond comprehension sorry..

          Could probably lose the sunvisors too :D

            I have been arguing for 2 & 1/2 years with ANDRA h/o & a Sydney Tech Inspector to be allowed to attach the rear stays to strut towers to no avail, as ANDRA want them to the boot floor. But there is no chassis rails past the strut towers.

            I have another Sydney Tech Inspector who is happy to tech the car as long as put some supports under the bar between the strut towers. But I might just pick up some more tube during the week and add two more rear stays, just to save the shit fight!

            And for those who arn't aware/havn't picked it up yet, I'm Aaron, THAT ANDRA cunt from WSID & the VPW rep.

                        Because there is fuck all of them left. Parts were hard to get 15 yrs ago.

                        No 7? If it was mine it would be full restored and locked in a shed. In years to come it will be worth some decent coin. Might take 50 yrs thou. Lol

                          Thanks mate

                          Muttaburra hit the nail on the head, there was only approx 7000 of these sold in Aus, so parts are hard to come by & dont share alot with the cordia & sigma. Funny thing is, they were huge in the states and there are widebody's everywhere.

                          Yep, number 7, going by the registry we run on austarion, the only one left with a lower number, is the one that mitsubishi australia have (001). Sad part is everyone now and again one pops up for sale at a ridiculous price, because someone thinks it's something, it's not.

Stupid tart on the news last night talking to the weather guy "wow you look totally drenched there whateverthefuckhisnamewas." No shit you vapid bitch he is standing in a fucking cyclone.
