"Track Rat" Fox body build - Finished!


Recommended Posts

more shaping on the rear diffuser



I was at Drugmart and spotted a 99 cobra kit for pretty cheap.. picked it up thinking what the heck, lets see how that IRS mounts up..



So I "could" make this work pretty easy, however its a bit more work than I anticipated. The track width is a little wider than I was hoping. The easy thing to do would be change the wheels, but that is not an option to me. I could narrow the mounting point on the wheel and the axle, but im worried about where the rear arms need to mount..

I'll stare at it a bit and decide if its worth it.

Looking good Andy!

To strengthen parts, I often will use a trick, of using ultra-thin CA glue, only a drop via toothpick at a time, placed so the CA flows along & over the area desired (only)

It dries quickly, allowing a few layers to be added, then lightly sand & primer

That I often use this to build up more fragile parts

started getting the turbo mounted, took the fox kit headers, modified those to the ls spacing on the heads (really close) flipped them around and went to town. I had to remove the AC compressor to fit it, but who needs that in a track car anyway?




laid everything in the engine bay to check fitment.
