Hey all. SOrry for the delay we have been waiting for the rear end to come in before we could really make any more progress and start ordering parts. IT DID!!!

Got it set in place and I'll bea heading to the metal yard today to get the metal to bolt it in.







So now the Corollaru gets the rest of its name. SSAN. The Corollarussan is oficially formed... We have the coilovers and some of TSS-Fabs new a-arms coming so we hope to have it almost in rolling form in a couple weeks. In the meantime my buddy has been removing the undercoating so I can stitch weld it after all the chassis fabrication is finished.

More to come

Hey all update time. Ordered in all the adjustable rear arms and got some TSS-Fab Adjustable Front arms which have been sent off for powder coating. Got the rear chassis modifications all welded up so once the arms come back the rear end can be rear installed. Suspension is on the way.

But yesterday I got do try something I have wanted to do for a long time. My buddy (owner of this car) used to have an EVO X. I got ran unto and was totaled. Before the car was taking we got a few of the parts off is and one of those parts were the 2pc Girodisc Rotors. He decided he wanted to put them on this car so here orderd up come calipers and I got to fit them to a set of STi Hubs.



It took a little bit of modification to the hub but it was pretty easy I have to day. Best part is that the EVO X uses the same piston sizing as the STi and the same front pads so the brake bias won't really be effected. Its grown from a 320mm to a 355mm rotor and because this rotor has a larger airgap then the STi the Girodisc rotors are the same weight at 39lbs for the pair. Its a pretty sick mod for those looking for something a little more then what the STi has and dosen't break the bank. I have designed a couple pieces to make it so you can just use the stock EVO X Rotor and caliper and I am going to make a few sets I think so I can do this mod to more cars.

As you can see the size difference:



Once the prototype pieces are finished I'll prolly put these on my forester to test out how that work and if everything goes well then I'll hopfully be able to offer this as one of my special skills when I start my new shop.

More to come in a couple weeks once parts start coming in.

I finished the front end myself and he took the car to store at his place for the winter.

No William made a special bell housing to use some Toyota (T50 I think...) on it.

I'll have some pics up in a few. I should have taken more but it was working on to many other cars at the same time...

Oh man... I wish I didn't hear that, lol.

Now I'm really tempted to throw just a dirt cheap N/A subie motor in the SR5.

I'll wait a while until I get bored of the 75 carburated hp...

OKay...

So we left the action with a few things set and the front brakes figured out.. Next we made an extension off one one of the original cross beams to mount the rear of the X-Member and then redid the rear frame rails to bolt the front on. Next we got some adjustable arms for the rear end an a set of TSS new Adjustable A-arms (same ones we prototyped in my Forester.



Everything installed:





Next we ordered a Set of custom Stance Coilovers from my boy Adam at TH Motorsports. 05 STi up front and 240SX rear with AE86 Springs rates. For the rear we cut out the original strut mounts and made new ones using a 5" pipe cut out with a place to mount them. In the front it got a little tricky.

I redrilled the towers to fit the STi Camber plates and trimmed the plates a little bit. I wasn't happy with all the extra metal on the Stock crossmember we originally mounted to the frame rails so we cut it back off and I got William at TTS to make me a tubular front X-Member but with out the ends. I trimmed that to fit in the rails and welded it in place it fit much better. After that I installed the A-arms but because the body of the 86 is not really similar to the Subaru in any way I switch the Left for the Right and ran the rear part of the arm which would normally bolt to where the PSRS would be towards the front and welded the mount to the new frame rail. It looks a lot like the original arm in the *^ with the Torsion bar. Bolted up the hubs and got her into a roller.







Derick the owner took the car this last weekend to his place where it will prolly sit for the winter. Once he unpack everything that he stored in it he'll take some pics of the new rear rails and pics of the front assembly. That is all I have for now. Hopefully in the spring we'll pick up where we left off and get the cage and the body parts ordered up so I can finish up the front core support and start building the turbo kit.

I have an AE86 too. I'm definitely interested. I see the fenders are cut up already. Are you doing to do Accord full fenders like on your legacy?
