hi buddy

well we basically have re-built the complete rear end now and upgraded everything, so once we  get all the arches rolled or flared to house the wheels, we're going to run it as is for a few months with a road setup on the suspension once it fires up and get a good few thousand miles on the clocks, a few track days and evo triangle runs etc make sure everything is solid, basically have a good shake down period and enjoy the work we have done over the last few months.

then do the front end with the same treatment strip everything down inspect all parts then up rate things like the rad and bushes etc also want a morosso sump and oil cooler, need to fit the standalone ecu once its ran in and finish stripping the interior get some proper seats, get some strut braces, up rated brake lines, some sort of splitter and some sort of wing, and fine tune the suspension for the track

lots to do but getting there slowly, its just such a great little handling car with the MR drivetrain combination its so good for tracking compared to other cars i have driven this will be a on-going project for the foreseeable future, who knows where it will end up hopefully like some of the other track weapons on here like that Lars and Ikanas cars

I love Rota Grids, rock them on my AE86. I have to say they don't work on the MR2. You can only pull off a dish of its really low in my opinion.

Otherwise awesome looking car.

Thanks buddy 've always been a Rota grid fan to, I think they look ace, looks a bit odd on stock ride height, but the car is far from finished it will be lowered once the arches are flared, hopefully we'll get the engine running today and we'll get on the suspension next

What size and offset are the wheels? I run grids but mine sit nicely inside the stock arches and have a much smaller dish.

Hi Lee

the wheels are

15x7 ET20 on the front
16x8 ET20 on the rear

probably could of run less offset but wanted to increase the track and the added benefit of a bit of a dish for looks, once the coilovers are on the arches might just need a slight roll  but nothing major

HI all

just thought i would give a update on the track car project been a while but been hectic for me with a new job moving house and even got a baby on the way   s:D :D s:D  

anyway had a few track days and runs up the evo triangle etc bedded everything in and got a DTA ECU fitted and it made 178bhp which were very happy with, also got a splitter off someone from here and now were fitting some Tein springs as coilovers are a way off yet and wanted it a bit lower for the time being and from what i read on here there a good compromise, also the front end is getting stripped and rebuild which is well under way as we speak and in pieces at the moment, but will defo be ready for ding day this year  s:) :) s:)

i always upload to instagram to and also use the #MR2ROC my user name is tommy_zoom99

heres some pics

Car is looking really good Tommy, have been busy!

1zz in n/a setup made good power, I'd be well pleased with that!

The teins are good that's what I've been running last year.

What tyres have you got on there?

Cheers buddy has been pretty hectic and enjoyed the car over the summer now the winter is here time to do some more work,

 yeah was happy with the power and recon there is a bit of power left on the table to

At the moment we're running toyo T1Rs 225 45 16 and 195 50 15 wanted to keep the rolling radius the same as stock but with wider rubber

Car looks really smart! Once you have the coilovers / lowered / nice camber it will look aggressive!  s:) :) s:)

Hi Steve, thanks again for the splitter, the second it was fitted we immediately decided to abandon waiting for coilovers and get some wallet-friendly tein springs instead  s:) :) s:)  It's just crying out to be lowered now!

Will try to get some pics up while the work is being done over this/next weekend.

Btw do you still have that snap-off boss for sale? If so how much would you want for it bud?

Cheers, Tom.

HI all

a few updates for the track car stripped the front end and cleaned all the chassis legs up under the car and did the font cross members, took out the bracing,ARB and went to town on everything with a drill and wire brush attachment and painted everything,

we re bushed the lower control arms and stripped the shocks and cleaned them up and painted them ready for the tein springs

far from perfect but it looks shiny  s:D :D s:D   and hopefully the worst of the rust is gone, just needs a good wipe down as its a bit dusty in the pics







Also recently got a omp wheel and new boss but havnt been brave enough to remove the old wheel and air bag yet for fear of a broken nose  s:) :) s:)  but will have a go soon

also i found some old boost piping i had from a previous car that never got used and after some measuring it is the perfect diameter to match the stock inlet piping off the throttle body so we're going to build a custom inlet system, seeing as we dont need the MAF anymore as we have a standalone ecu it makes perfect sense  s:) :) s:)

it also has a 90 degree bend in which might help when positioning into the pocket behind the rear light







so the plan is to remove the airbox, cut and chop the stainless tube to match up to get the filter into the pocket behind the rear light retaining the stock heat shield to, so hopefully will fit quite well, hard to tell how much the tube needs modding but from looking at it not to much i hope and then keep the original cold air feed to which may also need trimming

i have 4 of these tubes exactly like the pic so might make a few if the work well and sell them

few more updates

everything is now painted and ready for assembly apart from the callipers which will fit then take apart as we cant crack the nuts now, got to eager with the spanners at the start   s:) :) s:)  we did some of the small stuff ready for the weekends big push to rebuild the front end and hopefully get it on the ground.

clean and painted all the strut tops, slam panel radiator brackets cross members, steering rack brackets, cant think what else basically everything apart from the steering knuckel  s:D :D s:D   and blended everything in so its all black, from the factory they seemed to of missed some areas!



some brackets from underneath



facelift brace, as you can see were running out of space to put things  s:) :) s:)



abs holder what a job that was to remove let alone fit without scratching everything



shocks all built ready to go on and our new dished OMP wheel cant wait to put it all back together





looking forward to the weekend for the assembly then move onto the rear and have a good clean, do the rear shocks, and then fit the wheel and build this custom air filter.
