    The Truetrac is neither a Clutch type or a Locker, it's a Helical-gear type (ie: Torsen). The JZA70, JZA80 Supras both had this as an option, as do the Miata's, etc.

    heres a couple pics of the motor and stuff



    and alot of people have been asking what i did for motor mounts so here is a couple pics, they are made from angle iron and are incredibly strong



    I am also adapting these to fit the car


    They are Zeal Superfunctions for the S13, absolutely amazing and most definately one of the best set of coilovers available to the public for the S13, I'll be retaining the Ae86 Spindle assembly and converting it from the spindle on strut type to the type required by the s13, to fit the rears i will be welding in a new rear top hat into the car to accept the two bolt style top of the s13 and machining a delrin bushing for the bottom. I'll have tons of pics of that in the next couple weeks as the machine shop that i use is really booked up and i had to bribe them with copious amounts of beer for them to slide it in for me :-) Spring rates on the Zeals currently are 10kg/8kg and I will see what they are like on the corolla (i can hear everyone starting to come up with comments on how incredibly stiff these are) All i can say is that the silvia these were on weighed 2700lbs with a 1/2tank of fuel and these were not in any way harsh riding when the valving was set to its softest. Damping is the #1 factor when a suspension feels too hard in my opinion thats why i chose not to go ground control&Tokico HTS' I would've went with silkroad complete coilovers first because there is an incredible amount of R&D that goes into the spring/valving of most high end coilovers.

    Worst case scenario is that I will buy a set of 6kg springs and run the 8/6 and have the struts re-valved.

    Very nice Steve, very nice! I can't wait to see it this summer. With all those mods and some slicks, you should be in the 12's if you care to drag it again.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    I have seen them listed on a few of the different sites for less than $350US for a brand new unit. I was most likely just going to order from Pat's in town here though as I prefer to deal with a local shop. I will probably have them setting up the diff once I get all the parts as well.

    Jeff do you have any first-hand experience with the True Trac though? I'm just wondering if it will lock up on decel as much as a 2-way clutch type like the TRD or KAAZ.

    P.S. Steve, was your car the one hauling serious ass at the SCC event in Calgary last summer? People were talking about it and I never got a chance to see you run.

    P.P.S. Once the car is finished I would be interested in talking to you about it for a story.

    yup that was the beast, only got like 3 semi-clean passes where the engine didnt cut out due to MAF limitations. I placed 4th overall which wasnt bad at all considering the next day I found i had fouled a set of plugs as well as cylinder #3 was down 50lbs of compression :-)

    Cams, EMS, bigger injectors, and a decent clutch will allow me to turn up the boost past the max boost of 12psi i could run last year.

    What kind of story?

    Hehe, I always take it for granted that people know who I am. I work at the Edmonton Journal as an assistant editor and occasionally write for the Driving section. I'm always looking for unique cars to feature.

    10kg and 8kg combo will be nuts on that thing. it will be great for drifting IMO. i have 8/6 and it could almost go stiffer. that SR is looking very nice. what sorta power figures do you expect??

    well I plan on maxx'ing out the DiscoPotato this spring at about 330whp, I am blueprinting everything else on the car to support a gt3071R, so if the disco can't provide enough I can always directly upgrade to the internally gated 3071R which is a bolt on replacement for the GT28RS and can support 400+whp if i need it.

    yeah I know that 10/8 is pretty stiff but I really think that it wont be nearly as bad as most people think when matched to proper dampers. Not only that this isnt my daily driver so i'm not totally worried about it :-)

    update

    fair bit of progress in the last week or so

    relocated shifter area to accommodate the longer sr20 transmission, ebrake also has new steel welded in as you can see in the later pics


    Stitch welded the whole interior floor pan area, I didn't do door seams or vertical seams very much as this car will still be street driven quite a bit and will have a revolver 6pt cage anyways. This vertical seam on the ae86 is the first one to start separating when big power is installed.


    All seams stitch welded and rocker guarded



    Here is the adapters I had machined up to allow the ae86 spindle assembly to be attached to the S13 style strut, these will be pinned as well as seam welded to make sure they don't ever separate, that would be bad


    New rear strut tower, there is 1/4"X2" wide flat stock behind the sheet metal for added strength, these should be more than strong enough for the coil-over conversion as I know many people who have converted to shock coil-overs using the stock shock mounts without any problem (ie Silkroad/section/Technotoytuning)


    Both sides completed and rocker guarded, bear in mind I have no sheet metal tools other than an air nibbler, hammer and a pair of hand shears



    Now with most of metal fabrication completed I can start on the bodywork, Shaved the ugly side marker lights via steel filler plates and welded in new trunk pockets that i salvaged from a rust free yet totaled coupe. (bright green filler hasn't been sanded off yet)


    More to come in the next little while, still waiting for my 2" CBY flares but i have the rest.

    Kiyo let's hurry up and get your car done.

    Then you can deliver pizzas and make money until your other job is available.

    Steve, points to you for imagination
