I have to daily driver her right now so Its hard to get anything done on her. I picked up some non abs parts from a mr2 that im curious to know how it would work on the alltrac. They were free with some other parts I bought so even if they dont work its not a big deal. Ill have to see if I can find some more information on how that might work in my car.

Picked up some ST205 rear axles and arms to gain some much needed camber in the rear. Will have to realign and set ride height again as I may go to a larger tire/need more clearance.

Picked up an ABS delete off of a 5th gen which I plan to install without removing the motor. This will be fun lol. Going to go proportioning valves for the rear in cockpit so I can get the brakes sorted. I will probably upgrade to racing compound brakes like I did on the circuit mr2 maybe Project Mu although I havent looked into it.

I have a problem with front brake pads burning off in less then a half an hour of track time. It has to do with my suspensions design and factory brake system. The rear brakes have never needed replacement so Im sure its a pressure issue.

The st205 arms was to even out the large difference in negative camber front to back. I only took her to the track once and only found the grip limit in the wet, then had that frustrating tire blow out.

Rims and tires will be next. I am also picking up another st185 to build a 5vz turbo powered rocket ship with my nascar dash motor. AND my mk3 mr2 2gr swap sits and stares at the other vehicles getting all the attention lol. Hopefully when I sell my audi I will be able to finish everything.

I finally found some ST205 rear arms and got them installed a couple of weeks ago. I got ST205 rear axles but the ST185 rear axles seem to be perfect with the extreme drop. I definitely have more camber out back but I havent got a chance to get it aligned being winter and all, and im not driving it.

I may be putting the st205 swap in my 90 alltrac new winter toy and dropping a v6 in this car to compete with my buddys new 93 2gr awd turbo swap hes working on. 2500 lbs is the target weight with 500+ hp. I still have to test fit the motor I have chosen. It should be epic I just have to find time and stop hurting myself on accident so I can actually get something done lol.

Stay tuned for more updates this winter!
