  6. 1987 Toyota Corolla SR5 AE85/6 HB (A/T) Last year for the RWD Corollas! It's time to say goodbye to an old friend. I've owned this car for 5yrs and it's time to let it go. It needs to go to an enthusiast who will love it as much as I do. I don't drive it as much as I'd like, and it needs to be enjoyed so it doesn't turn to dust like many of the AE86's before it. I only put 400kms on it last summer. I am the second owner of this Corolla. It's sock and mostly original with only a couple of things done to it. It has Tein lowering springs (on the original shocks) because the original springs were sagging. It has a Godspeed panhard bar and aluminum radiator. The old exhaust had seen better days so now it Sports a Takeda exhaust front to back sized for whatever 4cyl engine you'd like to use. I have all the OE wheels for it and comes with 14" Supra wheels wrapped in Falken Azenis RT615-K's. Small stone chips and small areas of surface rust. Floors and quarters rust free. Manitoba car. Has original owners manual in like new condition as well. Previous owner had AC and flip up sunroof installed. For the right customer, a 4AGE to W58 bellhousing and W58 transmission may be available. Manual pedal box also available. Had plans to swap a 20v 4AGE but just don't have the time. Asking $4,000 or best cash offer as-is where-is. SOLD SOLD SOLD It's not safetied. Last MB safety ran out in the fall when another potential customer backed out. The car has been re-saftied twice for tire kickers and I'm not interested in doing the safety over. Car is stored 30min outside the city.
  7. Ahh ok!
  8. Is you car currently set up for steering box and drag link or a r&p? If for rack and pinion, out of curiosity, why not use the rack you have? Generally you can de-power them fairly easy and keep the quicker ratio a powered rack generally has. RX7 folks do it all the time as manual racks are few and far between.
  9. 1. The link above will direct you to the license you need 2. Yes
  10. Snell M2010 is ok for track use where you do not have factory or aftermarket roll protection. However, use of Snell SA series of helmets are always preferred/recommended. Yes, roll bars with 4 points are legal for track use. Agreed that most SCCA approved products should be ok for use at Gimli or other WCMA tracks. A Miata or similar vehicle is not permitted to run the track without roll over protection and as such, SA series of helmets are required for this type of vehicle.
  11. It says SNELL approved but to which Standard?  The description doesn't specify.

    If you grab the miata, you will definitely need an snell SA helmet and a rollbar that has a minimum of 4pts. 

    No real comment on  which roll bar to get but hard dog products (m2 model) are popular.


    I found which snell it is snell M2010 I am guessing that is not good enough? Can you point me in a direction of which helmet to buy and where to get it? 

    So for roll bars any of the hard core M1-M2 bars are legal for me to use in the club events from this page:  http://trackdogracing.com/rollbars.aspx pretty much any roll bar legal for SCCA events will be ok in our cub too i am assuming.

      I replied to this in the forums because its good info for everyone.

      Road Race has purchased its 12 SNELL SA2010 loaner helmets from SpeedFactor Racing. They gave us the best price.

      Ok good to know, If I can't get the Miata in time (currently waiting on the TOD and import papers) and decide to take my subaru is my snell M2010 going to be ok with that car?
