I am planing to run my 165 rally car next year mabey the East parts of Rally America 2008. I ran one rallyx so far this year to test it out but on the fourth run something broke in the drivetrain dept. during a launch. I was still able to pull it on the trailer under her own power but if I gave it too much gas it would slip out of enguagement. I still need to figure out the problem and fix it. It's great to see these cars still kicking around.

It's all about getting to the rally.......

Could be the transfercase on your transmission. You can get underneath and switch the leaver on the tranny to Two wheel drive mode. If it works fine in two wheel drive mode, then its the transfer case. I have broke a few of them. There are three positions, the position it is in now is awd, the next one is some nuteral thing, then the last one is two wheel drive. You just take out the small bolt and turn the leaver then put the bolt back in. PS, I have a spare transfercase if you need to buy it. Like $50 plus shipping.

btw about where is this lever located? has anyone looked into if it saves gas, because i would assume it would. always good to know if you happen to break a rear axle.

I think that like you said I have a broken transfercase. I can't tell you how much I apprecitate your help on this. Do you prefer Paypal for the case?

Mabey some of the half track guys could give some more insight on actually driving around in these modes since the service manual says that the other settings besides all wheel drive are for "service only". I think that Mafix has experience with both front and rear wheel drive half tracs but I'm not for sure. Here is an image off of celica.net:

Currently 50mm DMS suspension with gravel springs, three Hankook rally tires and one Silverstone rallye tyre. They seem to have the same tread and design but they do dissagree on how to spell. I can't spell for cht so it dosen't really bother me that much anyways lol. I also have a set of Michelin Gravel tires but they are 14 inchers and wont clear my 185 front brake conversion :doh: . As far as the settings on the shocks I am not really sure of that yet. I think that the real test and tune will happen over the course of my first three to five rallys. Right now I am still trying to make the car bullett proof as possible and hope to make Sno Drift in MI this winter.

alot of people have told me to go with the dms. ive also heard some negative reviews about them. aside from ohlins another company ive heard alot of great things about is proflex. unfortunately the proflex are just slightly harder to get a hold of and i could only imagine a pita in regards to service. i was asking most about spring rate.
