Track AE86 Build from south america
This project started 4 years ago, and it has been running for the last 10 months, so I finally decided to post it.

The car was bought with the intention to gradually transform it into a race car for the local historic racing series.


The humble beginnings

We built a cage, mounted a race seat, harness, new wheels and went racing on an otherwise fully stock car.

The car developed severe cooling issues (that´s why you see the front mask removed in the picture) but since the engine was going out we decided to run the race anyway. It ran for 3 hours well into the RED zone in coolant temp, and miraculously finished third in stock class.



After that, the car went for a full rebuild. This is a summary of the current setup:
- Engine: Bigport 4AGE, HKS 272 cams, Wiseco high compression pistons, dual Weber 45 carbs, fixed ignition advance, stock crank/rods and everything else including the head.
- Suspension: Koni yellows and TRD 6/4 springs. Tein camber plates.
- Brakes: Rebuilt stock calipers, Hawk HT-10 pads
- Chasis: Full cage, driver position moved 25cms backwards and 10 cms lower, Tilton pedals and pumps, new steering column. Ergonomics were treated as priority, as the car is intended for some endurance races.

Specs: 156 whp, 895 Kgs with all fluids and 10l of fuel.



This is the car now (watch in HD):






This was its first real race, driving way too carefully:
