Hi Steve,
I cannot believe it has taken me this long to discover this thread.
I am about to start building my second AE86 Rallycar down in the south island and I will be making alot of improvements from my last car...and this build is an inspiration.
Being a fibreglasser I can appreciate the amount of hours you have spent fabricating these parts.
Here is a quick link to my page showing some of the parts I will be using for the new build...http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.443659362336613.90432.442941462408403&type=1

please feel free to let me know if you think there are much better options out there.

I have a TRD gearset inside a T-50(not sure which part #), 5:3 c/w and pinion with TRD LSD, and a bare shell at this stage so I am looking forward to getting things underway!

Cheers, Lyndon Galbraith

Hey there,

I am really interested to know where you got the Cusco strut brace that is on your tarmac rally car in the pictures?
Do you know if these are available to purchase?

Thanks alot

Hi Lyndon

good to see another car being built in NZ, I have just purchased another ae86 rally car with the same setup as you are using , TRD t50 with the 2.3 1st gear (same as my other 2 cars) TRD LSD with a 5.3 , engine is drysumped and making 190hp at the rear wheels . This car has fibreglass doors, gaurds,bonnet and rear hatch so will be a bit lighter than my tarmac rally car. It has bilstiens front and rear, wilwoods all round.
I have a tarmac event coming up in a couple of months so I will enter both cars (existing rally and new rally car, they are both yellow!) and see which is the fastest.
The cusco strut brace I purchased some time ago from the states so not sure if the are still avalible .
I have seen some of your incar videos , very impressive !
If I can be of any help with info for your build let me know as I have learnt from my mistakes and successes during my builds

Thanks Steve,

That new car of yours looks good. Was it on trade me? I have not seen that car before.
Yes I have purchased fibreglass front guards. bonnet, doors and rear hatch with ducktail and they are now waiting for me in Nz. My aim for this car is to get it as light as possible.
We have also just landed our new custom cages AE86 FIA roll cage and several carbon fibre parts(dash,door cards, footrests, roof vent etc etc) are on the way from Ireland. check out this page for all parts.

I also have some really good stuff on the way from Irelands http://www.grp4fabrications.com/index.php?cPath=42

lexan window kit, alloy tank, front suspension kits with rose jointed lower control kit and alloy hubs should all help with weight loss.

I am using the AP's on the front and might just go with Wilwoods on the rear as being a gravel car the rear wont be doing alot of braking.

I look forward to hearing how your 2 cars compare.

Cheers, Lyndon
