pfft, serious setup. drift what you got and make it work.
You thought of weight shedding, all side windows, door cards, carpet, rear seats. everything you possibly can pretty much. Would haul ass with a few kilos gone I'd imagine.

Yeah I've ripped what I can out - door cards, carpet, the rear seat bottom (not the top because it "closes off" the fuel area.. ahem). Still has windows, although I've been tempted by perspex.

I'm going to be building a 4ZD1+T soon(ish), I have the motor, turbo, manifold and some money aside, but need the time and a few more bolt-ons.. If that setup goes to plan I'm hoping for over 200rwkw with decent response :twisted:

Do you have a race bucket? Standard seats are heavy as!

Also, make up an alley firewall and get rid of that rear seat.

If you're really brave, go buy yourself a holesaw and cut some metal out!

I've got Mazda Familia seats in there so I don't go flying, and I assure you they *are* heavy as :lol: Buckets are on the "to-do" list but power and a rollcage will come first.

Just finished a video edit for last round at Tailem Bend (different track to the one in the mag) - check it out :D
