n00b *might* be interested in a really fast alltrac

Postby sirscrtm » Thu Feb 11, 2010 1:33 am

Ok, Im more of a MR2 guy in part because they are a lot easier to find. My bro has convinced me to go with a 90-93 alltrac if I do buy one.

Problem is your for sale section almost never has anything Id be interested in, in part cuz the car is so rare. Im looking for a 10 second 3sgte powered car, I dont care what it is and if it has a roll cage already installed so I can run it at my local track, all the better.

I keep waiting for something like that to pop up on here but I NEVER see it.

I *had* a BPU everything short of fuel injectors and ecu, 3rd gen 3s MR2 that ran right for all of one week in the 8 months the ST205 motor I swapped in before it died of rodknock (hence my 3rd gen 3sgte part out thread) It was the fastest car Id ever had built for me, unfortunately it didnt run right long enough for me to take it to the track. I was aiming for 11's at the time, the fastest Ive ever gone is 14.2 in a BPU 2nd gen 3sgte MR2 14.29@94mph still on its cursed stock IC that was heatsoaked and ran slower and slower times throughout the day.

Right now I got the parts to make a really fast MR2, or alltrac, but I just cant seem to find the right platform. Anyone got a caged 10 second Alltrac/MR2 they might be willing to let go of down the road?

Until then, Im gonna keep buying and selling car parts til I get enough money to buy something that runs a decent quartermile time in my eyes, and can hold its own in track and autox as well.

Until that day, I putt around in a gay, stock, Mazda miata while I part out what was spose to be an 11 second MR2 Turbo.

If I pick up another stock 2nd gen car, Im slapping on a methanol kit, running 100% methanol, and a good cheap ebay turbokit to run hopefully as much as 363 whp on stock everything like Jose Rosario did, I want mid-low 11's out of a 3sgte at the minimum dammit! If it blows, who cares! I got a mechanic who works for slave wages.

If you want something like that you will have to build it. Unless one of the two or three guys that have run 10 seconds decide to let theirs go. :evil:

An MR2 would be a better overall drag platform.

Only buy an alltrac if you really love them and nothing else will do.

To give credit where it is due, tjdouble07 has run some 10's http://www.youtube.com/tjdouble07
But he is the only other one I can think of off the top of my head. :smokes:

i think anyone who's put all the time n effort into building their 10 sec alltrac isn't going to want to just let it go that easily either.. i know i wouldn't..

No doubt. Everything does have a price. :lol: :D

10sec. may be pushing it but I'm pretty positive if I get back to her she would easily be a low 11sec car. I should know since I got Trevor's FMIC setup and his gt35r...

You have a better chance of buying an alltrac then buying a motor already built that can do 10s. I have seen some heavily built engines go up for sale. Based on cost of these engines I would expect to pay 7-10k for just the engine. You will still likely need a clutch, and possible the setups will not even come with a turbo. I guess a decent 10 second setup would cost a decent bit, so I would not suspect one of these cars to sell for less than 15k, and even that would be an unheard of bargain.

Getting a 3300lb awd car that has only 4 cylinders to work with in the 10s ain't easy. That's probably why there are only 2.

That and the fact there are only about 1600 in the US. Hell, I see that many DSMs on a daily basis!

Oh, and have fun in the Miata :evil:
