Time for a long overdue update.

This goes back to September 2010, during my last weeks of vacation at Portugal.

Began working on the 20V, and luckily had a friend driving in witha van full of tools.
Kinda reminded me of the build video of Ilda Akira's Levin. Smile

Loads of tools. Lets get to work then...

Cling film around it and that's a job well done.

The parts are still resting on that same shelf till today, and hopefully try to get the engine assembled at the end of December.

Now back to September 2011, I'm gonna fly to Portugal tomorrow and get my hands on the 86 again.
Trackday next Sunday!

In the mean time, been playing around with teh Megasquirt, trying to come up with a decent control strategy for when the engine and wiring are all sorted.

AE86 N2 (big update)
Given that we're rolling past mid 2013, I figured it is probably time for an update. Wink

Did some trackdays:


[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



Got the remaining 20V bit and pieces together to build the engine:


[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


At the beginning of the year and after a small misfurtune with the front end I decided that it was a good time to advance to the next phase with this AE86.

My ultimate goal for this car was always to build a track only N2ish version, so I started planning, buying, dissasembling, cutting, grinding... you get the picture.... Smile


Here's the picture report


First job, engine out:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



Car finally dismembered and a load of parts to store and tidy up:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



Keeping things organized:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



New headlights and corner lights. Gotta love new old stock Smile

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



Trying my luck with the dry ice:


[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



Got some designing done rollcage-wise:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



And back to the chassis:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



Got rid of the battery support and other bits and pieces in the engine bay:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]



And finnaly the front end was fixed:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


Time to clean some of the parts that will be going back to the car

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


And after some weeks the car was coming together nicelly:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

More chassis work:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


Time to kill some quarter pannels:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


And to fix some badly battered N2 arches:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


The interior was getting under way too:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]


Got my fuel cell compartiment made, and tryed to combine low CG with a drag free underbody after the axle:

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 N2 (big update)]
