The car held up GREAT in autocross yesterday. No cooling issues at all. It is very apparent that I really need a torsen and some better tires, haha. It did allow for some nice slides though It gained a lot of attention for my take offs; sounds amazing! Here are some videos.

Haha, looks like it hauls ***. It really needs a torsen though now, and should be your next mod hands down. And clearly a good set of tires

Edit: LOL just watched the video and that is one of the last things said. also, that is hands down the coolest auto-x layout i've ever seen, some real high speed sections.

I know, I know. I found a Torsen for a decent price too...but I have to pay off the body work in a couple weeks, and that's going to cost a pretty penny.

My build is pretty much the exact same thing, part for part. This serves as motivation to actually finish the damn thing! I'll probably ping you with questions sometime in the future.

I was actually expecting it to be much worse, since the outer skin was almost completely rotted away.

We are trying this. It's a 3 stage rust prevention kit: Frame Paint Kit - Frame Coater Kit - Stop Chassis Rust with KBS Coatings

Get that sh*t outta there!

You should put tape over the vents and panty hose over the filter. I hate body shop dust!!

Nice build, just needs that torsen and some poly control arm bushings. Night and day difference.
