    OK, so now that it's back on the road, I feel that I can tell you all the whole story...

    On June 6th, I was up on Rt. 17, and overcooked a turn by about 2 MPH. Without going into a lengthy description of the turn, I'll just leave it at this- I was VERY lucky in both my split second decision to bail out of the turn and crank the wheel hard right to make the entrance to the runout area, and in the fact that I lost it on the ONLY turn on that hill with a run out area where you need it. The damage was light- a drivers mirror, drivers fender, drivers side driving light, and a new tire. I missed several stumps, boulders, and a 4' deep ditch by no more than 2'. The bumper was smooshed up a bit on the lower left corner, but no cracks, no internal frame damage, no busted oil pan.

    However, the repair got a little out of hand. It was decided that the tires were shit, so new tires should be put on. Then what good are tires with stock suspension, so suspension bits were added. But what good is all that if the brakes are only good for one hard braking zone, so brakes were added. But if brakes are added, the stock wheels won't fit around them, so bigger wheels were put on. But wait, if I'm going to paint the whole car because of a different color fender (can't match 12 year old non- clear coated red paint), the RC/ CS front end might as well be installed. But if I do that, then there won't be any air going to the top mount IC, so an FMIC will have to be stuffed in behind the bumper. But with all that nice cool air, what good is a stock exhaust and no way to tune it? So a 3.5" turbo back exhaust and S-AFC were added.

    So here's how she stands right now:

    RC/ CS front end (non- USDM hood and bumper, OEM parts- do a search on Google to see what they look like)
    30X10X3 Spearco FMIC
    Tein SS coilovers
    Whiteline GT4 Club handling kit (rear sway and full bushing kit)
    Apex S-AFC
    17X7.5 Rota Sub Zeros in Royal Black (gloss black w/ polished lip)
    235/40 Yokohama ES 100 tires
    5mm spacers up front and 25mm spacers in the back to get the tires to clear the struts
    13" X 1.25" two piece Wilwood rotors
    Wilwood SL-6 six piston calipers painted red
    SS brake lines
    Porterfield pads

    Stuff I had to fabricate for this project:
    Charge pipes
    3.5" turbo back exhaust
    Rear spacers
    Caliper brackets

    Stuff I'll be doing by the spring:
    13" X .87" Wilwood rotors for the rear
    Wilwood Dynalite 4 piston calipers for the rear
    Wilwood non- boosted dual master brake cylinder
    Color change to metallic charcoal grey/ silver
    Programmable ECU

    Stuff I'll be doing by spring '06:
    Garrett GT40 turbo
    Pistons and rods
    Roll cage
    No interior
    Sparco Corsa seats (lose weight if you want a ride and expect to fit in the seat)
    Five point cam locks

    No pics because my camera shit the bed on me when I was at Pikes Peak in June, and I haven't gotten around to fixing it.

    Oh, and B- the Teins fucking ROCK. I think you think they suck in Hondas and the 240 because those are light cars compared to the AllTrac...

    :D X 100000^99

    damnit, my fat ass can't get a ride :(

    and tiens suck. i stand by it. yes, they are drastically better than what you had, but i would have picked something else out if it were my car.

    but the build sounds cool- even though i knew most of it already :D

    so, you say color change alter-- what color are you now? did you paint the bumper red?

    Might I suggest the Pissedoffdiet and the Pissedoffsmokeout?



    OK... fine... go find me some decent coilovers available here in North America for a Celica AllTrac, chassis code ST185/ ST185H.



    Bumper and hood are black. Rest of the car is red, and the replacement fender is a different shade of red. I'll be doing some welding for a guy that has a body shop in exchange for a paint job.

    Nice. Now with the cash you've saved on the paint job, go buy a badass digital camera and take some pictures for us. :lol: Sounds like a nice build Ji! :thumbsup:

    I have to agree. Teins suck. What's the weight of the Alltrac versus the 240? What about in comparison to the 1987 Supra ? How about the 1984 Vette ? Done Teins in them all, and I wasn't impressed. For the weight, Bilstein is my tattoo.
