Last year, at the 2nd annual Puget Sound Toyota Club meet I took first place for best Celica. The plan this year was to defend it!

I did a lot of work over the year, including the RC alltrac Quaife LSD tranny, the T3/T4 turbo, the FMIC, the boost controller, etc...

Well, today, I took 1st place again for best celica, out of probably 18 or so Celica's! Was absolutely awesome!

Some pics from the day.

What brand are those wheels on there? I think my 92GT has the same ones.

Any threads on the quaife install you did? I am curious as to details why it won't work with an alltrac front lsd.

Because the transfer case and connecting intermediate shafts will not work with a mr2 LSD setup. This includes any TRD/cusco/quaife LSD setup. By using an alltrac RC gearbox, I had to install a mr2 diff, hence the quaife. So I'm also using mr2 inner shafts, with alltrac outers, like a normal half trac mr2 gearbox setup, sort of like that :) Its pretty cool, and my car is definitely unique because of it! The RC tranny is also amazing :)

Conrad, I think it was your strut bar that topped the cake!

Actually, Coomers' old car was there, the 6th gen with the wire tuck. Was very cool to see!

I cant believe how much wire tuck he did. You should see colossus20v's swap oh my at how many sensors / wires there are. I cant believe how clean that car was under the hood.

Yeah, but I believe he has lost quite a few accessories, including power steering if i recall. He did some things that I might do on mine as well, some simple relocation of parts that I never would've thought of!

Coomer is a really nice guy.

Looks like a fun show. Those AW11's behind you look pretty cool themselves.

Glad to see you won the 2nd year in a row. Sounds like it makes all your work worth it. Congrats.

Excellent Sean! Your car looks very good. I have yet to see a Celica that has been modified or pimped out look better than an original one. Yours looks super clean.
