    Because race car


    This is my third supra axle, I keep getting, and passing them along.
    But this time it's going in, I plan on a new mounting system that allows for some adjustment, and smother travel, looking for more traction without going softer, or wider tires



    This guy showed up, just in time as it was.
    Matt broke his trans, and borrowed a new one from a guy doing a beams in Portland, so we decided to get a new complete setup for some spare parts.
    Turns out when I went to PARC in march, on the return trip I froze the engine, full of water
    Found out on Thursday night as I was filling the cooling system, to leave Friday.
    Water pump housing broke, and the water line fitting on the back of the head broke too.
    So Friday at noon with the help of Drader, jackrabbi Bryan, and Paul booze, we pulled the engine out enough to change the fitting on the back of the head. Put it together and hit the road to Portland.
    There was water in the oil, so I was worried, but after changing the oil at excessive manufacturing and talking with Rich we ran it anyway, and luckily the engine is fine, just the pump and fitting cracked. It kept the oil and water separate all day.

    It's a lot of work sometimes, but getting to drive a track like PARC is so amazing, it's like corolla heaven.



    Also got our first day as a complete 3car team in the bag, Matt's celica, my car, and Cody's 1uz celica, together we are ShaDynasty
    Old school drift team







    It was half and half rain and sun, we got some super solid runs in. At the end of the day the heavens opened up, it rained like crazy, and we decided now was a good time to run 8 car trains, 3cressidas, a mk3 supra, our old cars, and who ever else was in on it.
    Couldn't see a thing thru my windshield, and completely surrounded by awsome, it was crazy, not one bump, even with a few spins, and close calls. I'm pretty honoured to have the privilege of running in a group of drivers at that level!

    Awesome that you still made it! And cool train!
    I found a beams engine setup locally at an Importer for 700, I talked him down to 600. It comes with auto tranny and no ECU. Might not be worth it since autos are supposedly De tuned. If you want to sell that engine harness let me know!

    It hurts not drifting now that a track like that is available. So happy to see you trucking along and killing "it" non stop after all these years.

    Been working on the rear end
    Got that 4.30:1 7.5" diff from Gary(thanks) and ordered a bearing kit for it, welded up the open diff.
    Waiting for the bearing kit to arrive so I can put it together

    Built some new mounts







    Used some threaded ends with bushings, 3/4" thread, and 5/8" hole for a bolt
    3/4" weld on bung thing
    I wanted as much room, and as much thread engagement as possible, to get the end as close to the axle as possible I drilled into the housing to move it up.
    Kinda concerned, but I think it will be good, it's got room so it won't contact the axle shaft.
    The thought is that the pivot at the leaf spring will allow for smother movement of the axle, the old axle was held directly to the springs by a big block and u bolts. So it couldn't rock, the upper arms are pretty long so the axle shouldn't rock much anyway, but I wanted to do something like this for awhile.
    It's just a thought, I hope to get more grip, squat, whatever, with this

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?
    Can't wait to test it

    Hey paul, where did you get those ends. I want to build some links for my rear end and don't want to deal with solid heim joints, those are just perfect!

    I see rod ends in bending... kind of of a no no but a 3/4" thread might just take it. With all this work why not run a 4 link and some coil springs or if you really want to keep the leaf spring use a two jointed link and have the weight bare on the leaf spring but the axle locating completed by the 4 link.

    cool stuff no mater what, I could be completely wrong and it might be amazing.
