    I thought it was time to share my Project with the world of Lextreme from down here in Christchurch New Zealand.

    I always had a dream of building a Toyota Soarer drag car what eventuated was a lot more radical than first planned.

    I had trouble acquiring a donor car to start the build with so instead with the help of a boat building friend I managed to get hold of a car I could take a Fibreglass mould off and so it began.

    Once the body was built we started to plan and acquire parts and steel for the rest of it. We ended up buying a steel Docol R8 the new alternative to Chrome Moly.

    9 months after the first piece of chassis was cut the car made the track for the first time.

    Specs.

    Stock Standard 1uz long engine
    Custom Box top intake manifold
    Siemens 212lb/hr Injectors
    Aeromotive Mech Fuel pump
    Methanol
    2UZ COPS
    Twin Biagio turbos specs unknown
    Link G4 Thunder ECU
    Powerglide Trans
    Nine inch full floating diff


    Have run a best time of 10.045 and a best MPH of 129 so far with only 3 race meeting competed and still working our way though the Tune.

    At the moment we are having a back pressure issue with turbine housings and is seeing up to 15psi under load. We are still working through the tune and have it pretty clean up till 6000rpm.
