Pretty sure you will find all the info you need here.

What are the requirements for your events? All stock? Everything goes?

And have you considered just finding a cheap GT that has what you want and just improving it?

Oh, and welcome aboard!

Can do any mods that can't be seen like cams head work just can't be real high compression to motor, and yea gt would be the way to go now we bought first car for 450 ready to race and given us 30 good races with 1.6 auto, got second car for 300 and put nice cage in it. It's dirt racing so we go through a lot of spindles, struts and all kinds of suspension parts so can start with st and make gt with add ons. 5 SPD cars in all makes seem to accelerate better on the stars so need stick and heave found lots of 2.2's but not with 5spd so looking for donna car with stick in Tampa bay area as it's a complete conversion, as others have noted the cars are super safe as the front of car was engineered with safety in mind from toyota and my boy flipped the first car 3.5 times last year and car still races now.

Did you happen to bring your Celica to Tuffys awhile back to get us to sponser you? It was the Celica on the trailer no? I ask because it says wesley chapel and thats where I work is tuffys.

Toyota29, this is not the right place for Buying and Selling. You must follow forum rules, especially the one that states you MAY NOT sell items with a post count under 25. This is the second time I've seen you break this rule. Once in chat, once here.

You appear to be Celicadirtracer's son, but that does not exclude you from following rules.

Please read the Classifieds FAQ, located at http://www.celicatech.com/forums/faq.php?faq=classifieds
It clearly states that you may only post part sale threads in the appropriate (Buying and Selling) forums, and you must meet the minimum requirements AND post a price. You have broken all of those rules.

Opps sorry bout that he's 15 and just letting him post on forums and will show where to post and when,, he did run second in his heat race last weekend and was running in top ten when he got hit behind drivers door by slow car below and was spun and collected by another car and if the car had been a integra or neon it would have no front end instead of one that has a slight curve to the right

:phatyo:Yes it's been great I raced the old car twice :cooltake:, it's been great for him as far as grades and just growing Up very proud of him:you_rock:. We have to run n/a that's turbo by the T in model # right, we got 5 cars now all 5gen his first street car is a 93 gt that has a nice amount of the options available to that year as it's the last of the 5's. We have a sprint and mini sprint as well but have grown to really love our Toyota's so we will be around for a while on this site as it has lot of smart people that are helpful in a nice way.
