My spies tell me that a new Fensport car has broken cover.

How does a 7th Generation Celica with GT-Four running gear and 600-650bhp grab you.

Ran solid 11 second 1/4s all day.

Just the 3SGTE (cause that has been done before) or the whole AWD set up? Regardless it is hot.

I also notice it is 4 lug, can you find any info on the brake set-up?

ST205 running gear. It's 4wd.

I'd guess the brakes will be brembo 6 pots.

Downpipe is on the front/top of the engine bay
With engine tilting that much, how is the oil sump, driveline setup?
Any pic under the car?

Here is the brake setup

Brakes: Tarox 330mm vented disc with alloy bell and 10 pot calliper. Rear 270x10 solid disc with 6 pot calliper

I was just about to post this..


What's it gonna be called?

ST165 - 4g
ST185 - 5g
ST205 - 6g
ST225 - 7g alltrac?

:bowdown:
I'd buy that for shizzle (Even though I know it's just for Fensport racing).

Meh, I'm not a huge fan of the 7th gen styling, though it is lighter...

Gary, it looks like the engine is the same tilt, just a higher mounted turbo.

I wonder what they did for the driveshaft and the mount the rear end. I would love to have one just for the sake of low weight. What times did it run at the strip?

600bhp and only 11s? :(

Road tyres. First outing, so still bedding in. And the Corolla in full on race fueled drag setup only just ran 10s.

I also suspect it's heavier than you might think. All the additional drivetrain and plumbing won't help.

Fair enough...i dunno... still seems slow. They'll get it sorted though.

Joo must be kidding, anything running 11s on street tires is not slow.

I mean slow for 600-650hp. I know it's not slow. :P

My buddy's Neon is in the 11s now... street tires.

What's the trap speed on that thing?

I'd like to know when a 4-lug Alltrac was ever made, maybe the Corolla? Anyone know what this came from?

I suspect the halfshafts and hubs are very, very custom.

Would be pretty awesome car but yeah seems slow to me too! My mates MR2 has 480HP and runs low 11s down the 1/4 mile!

The Rally Cars, the spec ones, were four lug as well. Look closely at the old photos, I have seen ST165 and ST185s with 4 lugs.
