Let us know how it goes~~ I want to take mine out soon too as I haven't done any driving since I upgraded brake pads (remember I was never satisfied with the brakes on this car).


I was running ports and high temp fluid and the car did fine at autox. It was a couple runs of the dragon before I saw them really fade. The same setup with oem fluid could barely make a single pass at the dragon before braking seemed dangerous. I have not had a chance to really put the wilwoods and 205s through their paces, but hopefully I can get a feel next week.
After living here for 4 years I have become even more weary of taking the alltrac out for anything but car dedicated events. If a god had to judge people by the way they drive, it would damn this whole midwestern region. Between the shitty parking or disregard for other people's cars and bad driving I don't know how anyone can keep a nice car here.

I have a trick that makes it work currently, but Allen Wood has been working on a solution I will be testing out once the AC is charged again. We'll keep everyone posted.

My first ever helmet purchase came in yesterday. I still hit the roof, but I can angle out the sunroof. I was measuring too to see how much clearance I needed. I think the sunroof delete would do it for me. I might look into making the plug over the winter unless I magically get some free time.

Took the family up river road as a test to see how we can handle long trips. It was a couple hours round trip, and I was curious if we might handle 7-8hrs. The car is mostly compliant for them, but the exhaust is too loud for my 2 year old. She doesn't seem to mind, but I don't think its good for her ears, so I will either address exhaust noise, or have her wear ear protection if we dare venture down to the dragon. Of course I will drop them off at my brother in laws before taking on the fun driving.

Car looks great! When are you planning the trip to TN?
Btw, are these for Alltracs specifically? Doesn't RacerX make MR2 parts? Looks great! How much ligher are they?

Thanks.
Arms are specific to my car but he made a jig so he can make more for alltracs. This is an early stage photo.
Not sure when I'm doing the tn trip. Heading to Springfield Saturday for a meet and trying to prep the car better for longer trips. Picked up a single rpf1 to use as a spare and I need to deal with exhaust noise for the sake of my kid. I will be in tn twice later for the holidays but I am still trying to figure out a trip for the car.

Got a good deal on a spare wheel. This will be my spare, and I will likely get a full set down the road. I didn't see the point in buying a spare for the sportmax since I plan on moving onto other wheels down the road.

Nice! The Sportmax are nice wheels. Are you keeping them when you get your next set? What are the specs again? Love the fitment. Keep me posted if you decide to sell. The Enkei wheels are sweet. They're getting popular in the All Trac community.

Thanks. Yeah I'd like to keep them unless I get two new sets of wheels. I had spent the past few months trying to track down a spare but I could not find another but whole sets and the average price is 800. So then I started looking for wheels that could be spared for a future set. Seems much of the wheels I like are either rare or expensive. Thinking of the long term logistics the rpf1 made the most sense. They are light, cheap, and will be around for a while if I need a replacement. I think for now I am going to try and sell my adr wheels first then I can contemplate what I'll do for future sets. Waiting to see te total costs of this lca being made then I need to tackle my exhaust and lookin to some brake tweaks. Likely going to upgrade to the newest version of my calipers and rebuild my 205 calipers among other things while I am in there.

First drag race in the alltrac, and a ride along in a tesla among other show highlights at the Gateways Electro Madness.
My time is on the left.
