I too would be interested in a VIS hood buy. Also would be interested in Tein's if they were cheaper than what I can get them for now. I think I can get them for about $1450.

I would be interested in a VIS CS hood as well. Also maybe a set of rear adjustable control arms with heim joints and all. Also how about the new Aeromotive stealth pump. It flows a lot more than the walbro and I've seen good reviews of it. I voted for the hood but would really like to have the vis version.

Ok so I will change the hood to VIS, you guys have done your research on that and all the points are valid. Its a shame seibon did not take the time to do it properly :( their loss...

AS for the fuel pumps we can do either set, the aeromotive does flow more, it does fit in tank like the walboro. Drawbacks VS walbro is the cost is about $50 higher, it probably will pull more juice, and as with high flow pumps you may overload your FPR and end up running high base fuel pressure etc. (maybe a concern to some)

Just added the roll cage option. They are available fro st165-st185 from a simple roll bar (around 500USD) to a full out weld in cage SCCA approved (around 1200)

I like the idea of a simple 4 point roll bar for use with harnesses. That would be another thing off the purchase list. And as for the pump I personally have gone way beyond anything factory in the fuel system so that wouldn't be a problem for me but I could see it being a problem for other members. Let me know about the cage even if it does not end up being part of the group buy. Another idea would be to host a GB with ACPT for their carbon driveshaft. I wouldn't mind paying a little extra to have a reputable name on this forum host it.

If funds weren't an issue I'd be jumping on the cf alltrac hoods if that ends up being a part of this group buy.

Really would like the bushings and mounts first tho. Maintenance is key to a strong car.

Will the simple roll bar/cage look like pats/trevors?

I'm looking at buying it if it'll pass NHRA requirements (for 1/4 mile drag) and amateur tracking events.

I can help if you guys decide to go with a bar and or cage through Autofab Race Cars. I drag race full time and they sponsor my racing so I am very involved with the shop and have a good amount of pull there. They do custom cages in everything from street/strip cars to SCCA cars to building pro mods and dragsters so I can have them make them to any specifications you want. The cage they did for my stock suspension Mustang fits so tight that you can't even tell it has a full cage in it from a few feet away. Door bars bent around factory arm rests etc.

As far as NHRA requirements, you just need a 6 point weld in bar to go 11.49 or faster.

They make a roll bar specific for a celica? I didn't see anything on that site.

According to their site, they make them for the Gen 2,3,4 and 7. No love for the Gen 5 and 6 guys.

What's the cage made out of?

I'd like to have chromoly steel.

Dragstang, that would be cool to get something set up if possible. My little brother welds, so if I could even just get the shaped/bent bars fitted for the alltrac, I can weld it in myself and weld it together, like a "kit for the welder" type deal. Potential cost?

Klue, I didn't see anything on there either. If there's already a kit made, then yeah, no need to reinvent the wheel.

Hey Klue,

I've been doing some reading on the Raceland coil overs, and I see many good reviews on them. Would you be interested in promoting something for the ST165 and ST185 cars? They make kits for quite a few cars, and it would be nice to add the Celicas to the mix. Do you have any pull to make that happen? I saw a thread on the 6GC.net site about getting on board for a kit for the 6th Gen. Could you do that? They're already affordable, and I know many Alltrac guys would show some sort of interest.

http://www.racelandus.com/

I'd be interested in any kinds of bushings as well, subframe, rear diff mounts/bushings. I will send you a PM on some things I've been working on myself for Alltrac restoration parts with certain companies, etc.

VIS RC hood will seem to be the logical route for my ST185 vs oem RC hood. If they can make one for the ST165, that'll be great. But I'm not going to hold my breath.

O gotcha. Well I don't plan on putting a bar in mine but if group of you guys are interested in having some custom bent for an ST185 I wouldn't have a problem with letting them use my car to fit them to.
