Haven't done much with the car this week. Had to store it in the yard without the front suspension in it.

Should be pretty busy with it come mid July.


Had to put them in to move the car before I took the front suspension back apart.

Site is not so great but allows you to search part numbers.

Also not cheaper, was looking at the wrong part. No in stock alternative to Spicer 2-28-417.

Long weekend working on these two.

Learned a lot about setting up a diff as well. Waiting on getting the right shims to put together the supra diff.

After a long week of rebuilding the diff, mounting the diff, modifying a propshaft, putting the front suspension back in, and fixing blown up coolant lines I made it out to a rallycross.

For those of you who want to rebuild a supra diff the shims from Toyota are not so easy to find. I ended up having the original ones surface ground and modified some other ones I had to fit. Also you will need a very large bearing splitter for the inner pinion bearing.


Me and the XRatty


Graham and the 96. Unfortunately due to clutch issues he didn't race it.


Proper limit slip makes this car very fun.


A little too fun.


Graham had some fun in the XR as well.
