    Brad's AE101 Rallycross Corolla

    A mate and I figured we would have a crack at the Raleigh RallyX coming up in October. After scouring Gumtree for $500 shitboxes the last few days I found a 1997 Toyota AE101R. Went to check it out this morning and although FWD, it will do the job at $400.

    1997 Toyota Corolla CSi Seca
    14" Alloy Wheels - 185/65/R14
    1.6Ltr 4A-FE with 290,000km
    Recently had water pump, belts, radiator, driveshafts replaced and a glovebox full of receipts.


    This is the track

    Loaded up for the journey home after pickup



    A few beers later and the inside was stripped out and a fire extinguisher mounted.






    Will try and get it out to the track in the next few weeks as is and then make adjustments from there.

    Bah, was hoping for 600hp 4wd tubeframe car.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

          I've been weighing everything as it gets stripped (seats, interior plastics and AC Compressor) and it is a 128kg lighter so far, based on what I can find online it should now be around 910kg. I think there is another 10-15kg or so left with removal of the heater box and a few other bits an pieces.

          Also cut out the rear muffler and catalytic converter and re-welded up the exhaust, it now as a hilarious side pipe #becauseracecar.



          Mudflap extensions, CAMS requirement that the mudflaps must be between 50-100mm above the ground.

          Can confirm it limiter bounces nicely. Took it out to the track for the first time today and had an absolute ball. 6000 rpm for just over 40km today.

          Put in 36 laps through 9 heats of 4 laps and beat a couple of cars but the clutch lets it down getting off the line.






          At lunch time a skud came through and made for an interesting afternoon. The 10 year old rear tyres were not up for the task, the over-steer was horrendous which is an unusual feeling in the FWD on asphalt.

                Anyone know much about the gearboxes and suitable clutches for these things? Would be handy to track down a factory LSD gearbag which looks like it might have been an option on the C56 boxes from what I can find online

                  C56 is the close ratio 5spd. C160 is the same but has 6 gears and is more expensive and difficult to find.
                  A lightened flywheel and decent clutch would be a good move as well.
                  C56's are still pretty common and plentiful, LSD ones, not so much.

                    yeah they are fairly rare. dont buy one without the shafts. try the import wreckers and the usual faceballs toyota pages. iirc trd/quaife used to do lsd's also.

                    something like a HD exedy would do the job for it. note xAFE's have a 6 bolt flywheel vs 4age that uses 8 bolt flywheel.

                      Found a few places selling TRD/Quaife LSDs but not at about $1300 considering its a $400 shitter. I Thought maybe a wrecker LSD box could be had for a few hundred bucks.

                      Will throw just a clutch and tyres at it and go back to the track at the end of October.

                              Next event isn't until 30th of October so seeing as the C50 gearboxes are pretty cheap and I need to drop the box to change the clutch (will put in a HD Exedy), I'll give the welded option a go. Never played around with FWD cars before so its been a bit of a learning curve to get the diff out.

                              Left the sound deadening in at this stage as I cant be fucked dealing with the sticky shit at the moment.
