Default EG 33 powerd race car build

Hi , a couple of members have sugested i start a new thread on a little project I'm undertaking at present, so for those that are interested here goes.
As i have just joined the forum i wont bore you with to much detail at this stage, but what i'm building is a copy of the 96-97 LeMan winning Porsche LMP1 WSC car of Joist racing.
it will be powered by an EG33 with a modified WRX gearbox, layout is Mid engined, weight will be approx 600-650 kg.
suspension is custom, inboard front, outboard rear, front uprights and brakes are from a Mk4 RX7 Mazda, rear brakes are R34 Skyline rotors with Willwood 4 pot calipers, tyres are 10" front, 12" rear Hoosier Slicks.
a couple of pics to give you an idea.




a photo bucket site with plenty of pics of of the build so far

if anybody has any questions , feel free
cheers John

The car doesn't even have a shell and it already has a spare tire on it?

Looks like an awesome (EXPENSIVE) project. Good luck with the build up. Definitely want to see how it turns out.

Mate thats not a spare but the latest tyre technology From dunlop, as my home track is prodominitly RH cnrs, i thought id save myself $600 on a slick .

as for expensive, if it was i wouldnt be building it, to date it owes me $6000 and thats with everything you see in the bucket site including engine and gearbox.
Goal is to have it on the track, racing for around 20g.

"I would so rock that around chicago".
there is one being built in Michigan as we speak, and another in California, not sure what power plant they have decided on as yet though.

glad you all like it
cheers John

finaly got the gearbox and engine bolted together and trial fitted for the first time, its tight but it fits, about 5mm clearance each side between rocker covers and top chassis rail.

will have to modify side diagonals and make them removable to allow access to rear spark plugs.
looking foward over the gearbox. not a lot of room but its in there

now the fun starts , custom sump, custom headers etc, let the games begin

for the purists, over here in NZ the Fc is comonly called a MK 3 and Fd is a MK 4 batmobile.
so front end is FD3S, if your that way inclined

There seems to be alot of debate on other forums i've looked at as to what gear box will fit onto the EG33, so heres what ive done .
the box in the pic is a 92 legacy 4WD box thats been converted to 2WD and bolts straight up, i also have a 90 legacy 2WD box sitting on the floor and that bolts straight up as well, i also have been informed by a reliable source that all gears etc are interchangable between the 2WD box and the 4WD box, as my 2WD box has late model WRX close ratio gears installed, with early 3.9 final drive LSD.
i will be useing the 2WD box in final assy as it will allow for a rh gear change mechanisim to be fitted a lot easier than the 4Wd box, as it has a shorter rear housing and the bonus ,its a few pound lighter,
as soon as i sort out the new mounts to fit the 2WD box and get it fitted, ill post a pic

WOW, kudos to you and your hand fabricated space frame.
I have made frames and body panels from scratch and it takes hours of work on a jig table, measuring and checking and re-checking for symmetry and square.
What did you use for the frame, chromoly 4130?
Mid-engine RWD, double wishbone w/toe rear and a Pushrod/bell crank front suspension. The only thing missing is the sequential gear box.
That is some serious sickness.
Are you making all of the body panels yourself from scale?

Hi Bloke, roll cage and associated braces are chromoly, the main chassis is just MS 1.6mm tube.
and yes i will be making all the body panels from scratch, but at least i have all the profiles on CAD to get cut out, so all i have to do is stich them all together
hopefully the EG33 will push her along at a decent rate of Knots

things have been cold wet and miserable down here lately, so havnt managed to get a lot done, and as i cant do much engine wise for a while [lack of funds] i've been consentrating on getting all the panaling done, cockpit is almost finnished just the pasengers seat to do which i hope to get done this week end, as you will notice by the pic, i have made the seats an integral part of the cockpit which will add substantial ridgidity to the area.



a better veiw of the drivers seat


the two levers you see on the center consul are for the front and rear adjustable sway bars, in case your wondering. and before you ask the gear shift will be on the right, mounted on the side panel by the steering wheel.

cheers and thanks for looking

heya, awesome. Are you going to make it legal? how are you going to run your shift linkage? I built this and drive it to work everyday it isn't raining, I have been thinking about putting a manual in it but it is a bit of a pain in the ass.

Here are some videos of the car, as well as some pics;
