    Anyone know if these clubs are going to allow / specially class ridiculously swapped cars ?


    I have this motor for a Celica, but if I build another Celica I wanted it to be V8 powered. All this talk of Z has got me thinking.

    Their new rules are very vague about engine swaps - which makes me think they'll make an addendum for it mid-season.

    Not important - I can't travel that much for Drifting. DOW is all I'm really concerned with

    I just have this 20R hybrid sitting here that would seriously kick ass - but if I built another Celica I wanted it to be more than 300lbs/ft.

    But it ain't gonna be worth shit if it's being classed out with SCCA / DOW / CART

    swaps are legal in street mod, so long as you still have full interior minus rear seats, and its from the same manufactuer.

    dgta/dow doesn't give a shit

    d1, you'll never make it there anyway.... so why worry about it?

    For CART I would compete at the highest levels of street mod if I had to. I'm very good behind the wheel of a Celica. This one will be gutted, custom gauge panelled and caged.

    EDIT: OH... same manufacturer ? I'll have to discuss that one. I'm going Ford powah

    My neighbor has a blazer that he swapped some monster engine into...he only wants $1100 for it.

    Only real rule for D! this year is no FWD converted to RWD...engines are unlimited....look at Chris Forsburg car, 350Z wide body, with some huge honking motor...

    And look at all the sr'ed cars...

    The shell is beat and junk, but the motor and drivetrain is built.

    They had a mockup at SEMA. There was no interior and no accesories on the block - but it was a V8.
