Ke70 Drift/skid Project

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

This is my 1982 Toyota Corolla ke70. I have had it for almost one year or so now, and i'm thinking about getting some more power out of it.

 

I have not made some super plans for it quite yet, but hopefully I it is ready for "Gatebil Våler" 2015. "Gatebil" is a trackday/track event in Norway (where I come from)

Here is a pic of how the car looks like today, it is preshly painted in it's orginal colour. It also have some lowering springs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So this weekend I started with the raer axle. I got a Volvo 240 axle for free from a buddy of mine, and it fits quite perfect. It is alot of work, but i think it is worth it, because i'm planning to have 250-300 ish hp.

It's a rusty axle, but it only got ca.150.000km on it, so i'm realy happy.

Starting to look like somethig

Almost finished, only need to make mounts for the coilovers and the panhard rod. I think i need to make the panhard rod adjustable, and i need to see if i need to make the lower arms adjustable aswell.

Thanks :D

I'm planning on using a b230fk engine from a volvo 940, because it is the cheapest way to get around 250-300hp. And in the end i'm a volvo guy haha :D

 

I live in the western Norway, not far away from Bergen, so mantorp is quite a long drive for me... so it's not the plan this year.. But i'm planning on Gatebil Rudskogen in July :D

 

Takk og hei haha :P

So today I bought me a donor car:

 

post-21775-0-13650700-1421957462_thumb.jpg

 

It is a Volvo 940 Turbo, 4 cylinders turbo with ca 140hk.

It has some mods done to it, bigger intercooler, blowoff valve and some other small things. To start with i'm hoping to get around 250-300 hp.

I'm really looking forward to start this project at it's full.

I started with taking out all the interior. I'm amazed over all the junk that was under the seats haha #coronaftw

This is the only rust i could find. And i think that is pretty good for a car that is 32 years old! But it only has 54.000km on it, so i'm guessing it has had i chill life :P

Hi. :D

So things did not plan out as i had hoped it would.. And the project kinda came in in the second line.

But i have moved in to a new garage, and things are starting to happen! :D
