View Full Version : Nat's Super Hot ae71

23rd September 2006, 12:50 AM
Well here it is kids, the famous drift monster: Rolly the Rolla, named for his general (door handle scraping) cornering attitude... Anyway this is what the beast looked like when I got it home, riding on king springs and strangely devoid of any vital fluids but with standard rust around the boot and rear arches.


Pinstripes rock. Not


Same goes for sheepskin


Um, yeah, 4ac. Shit aye?

That's what you get for $500, the seller was an old school rally guy who recoiled in disgust when I mentioned drifting it. Hahahaha.

I will wash the pig tomorrow and post up pics of the new wheels and general piggishness

23rd September 2006, 09:42 AM
hey man, thats pretty clean fo 500, they are a mad budget slide mobile. good luck and keep the updates coming

23rd September 2006, 10:20 AM
Hoorraaay you finally got one!!!

looks clean dude
good luck with it

23rd September 2006, 10:59 AM
Put recent pics up fag

23rd September 2006, 05:06 PM
Don't worry Ev, I've got Princey out front washing it, lol.

I've actually owned it for about 18 months, but only had it on the road for about 5 or 6 (I think)

Thanks for the positive replies guys, more pics are a-comin

23rd September 2006, 07:03 PM
As promised here are some recent pics.


Destriped and cleaned up


13x6 Cheviot Turbos and my super stealth black 3 inch megaphone

So so far I have:

Fitted up my $100 Cheviots (saved from the metal recyclers)
Gotten the exhaust done, 2 1/4 into 3 inch megaphonage (Thanks Carline Cessnock)
Blacked out around the headlights and grille
Ghetto modded the intake on the 4ac (Thankyou hacksaw)

Shit I've bought but haven't fitted yet:

T18 swaybar diff
ae86 brakes/shocks (thanks Evan)
Short stroke KYB's and braided brake lines (thanks AJPS)
Bigport 4age ($250 Ebay bargain!)
40mm Dellorto side draughts ($50 friend of a friend bargain)
Valeo HD clutch

So basically I've just been driving and drifting and getting to grips with this rwd thing. The plan is to redo the bodywork at some stage, fit up some dished as hell 14's and fit the t18 rear end with an lsd.

23rd September 2006, 07:40 PM
hey mate how did u get rid of your pinstriping because i want to get rid of them on my ae71

23rd September 2006, 07:54 PM
I heated the striping up with a hairdryer and most of it just peeled off. For the stubborn bits I used a caramel wheel and buzzed the rest of it. The bits i caramel wheeled don't look real flash up close.

24th September 2006, 12:04 PM
Lookin sweet man!

4AG for 250 http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/ohmy.gif

25th September 2006, 07:16 PM
Thanks bustin!

Yeah, I was pretty happy with the 4ag for $250, was expecting it to be rebuild only, but the guy that was going to rebuild for me pulled it down and discovered it's in mint condition, so new gaskets and in it goes! Only thing holding me up is that I have to buy some extractors, an inlet manifold for the carbs and an ignition controller, probably an MSD 6al.

But money is going towards suspension first!

25th September 2006, 10:39 PM
It's not too bad around here, I'm only a few minutes drive from the vineyards, which means plenty of deserted roads, particularly on week nights. My diff's still open so I'm a bit limited in what I can do anyway!

On a related note if the clanger passes scrutineering on Thursday I will be having my first competitive drive at the Mattara hill climb in Newcastle. The 4ac shoudl scare the shit out of all the other competitors, ahahhahahaha

26th September 2006, 11:09 AM
Pretty swell ride this one slides good as well LOL
Mattara should be fun!
almost as hot as ...............................
nahh never mind!



I challenge u to a battle!

27th September 2006, 07:43 PM
No battle for you Squeek

29th September 2006, 12:08 AM
I shall be at the hill climb. ill see how the 4a-c crawls up king edward. Car looks clean, best of luck.

29th September 2006, 12:19 AM
Race spec y0


29th September 2006, 07:47 PM
Hahaha thanks Evan.

Hey Pete, I will do my best not to come absolute dead last overall (I'm banking on someones car blowing up basically.

29th September 2006, 09:46 PM
Heh heh, I have a little thing called faith. And ill be cheering even if ill be the only one in the crowd doing so!!

29th September 2006, 11:54 PM
Hahaha thanks Evan.

I wouldnt worry about that if the brown celica is competing again this year. The driver was driving it like a cruise with a best time of ~65sec for the run i think. I didn't see the car get thrashed in any of it's runs http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/blink.gif

30th September 2006, 12:35 AM
Thanks Pete!

Brown Celica aye? There is a Celica in my class but I don't know anything about it. I'm just gonna take it easyish the first coupel runs and get a feel for it then I will just hold the 4ac on!

2nd October 2006, 03:54 PM
Nice work Nat
Good to see you out there!


Video of the run i caught on camera.
Shocks in the front = understeer.
Not bad for a 4ac http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/biggrin.gif



2nd October 2006, 06:37 PM
Damn, didn't get any pics of you.. Thought i did :S

2nd October 2006, 06:41 PM
Saw you do a couple of runs today.

Was surprised to see that other AE71 running too, was pretty quick tho.

2nd October 2006, 06:50 PM
Hey that sounds pretty rad!!

4ac FTW.......!!!!!!!!!

2nd October 2006, 10:59 PM
Thanks heaps for getting the vid up Evan! Your rad! I like that you got my ajps stickers in there too, lol

Yeah, was having some issues with understeer and generally running a 4ac, but apparantly my entry into the dreaded pinch drew praise (was too busy shitting my pants at the point to worry what the commentator was saying!) Ended up running a low 54 second pass by the end of the day, which wasn't even in the hunt but I did beat an st162 celica and a VN SS Commodore (wtf?). First run was a mid 57 so I was pretty happy. Will be back next year with better suspension and more power.

As a sidenote the green Lancer parked next to mine runs a vr4 engine and is owned by a mate of mine. Unfortunately on the 4th run he had a rather heavy coming together with the wall in the pinch and required a tow....the joys of motorsport.....

Thanks heaps for all your comments guys! (Motor racing puts me in a happy mood)

3rd October 2006, 12:44 AM
You beat the wheelie buggy though http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/wink.gif http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tup.gif

3rd October 2006, 07:26 PM
Yeah but I didn't do a wheelie! I'm waiting for the results to come through from the MG Car Club. I'm hoping I cracked a 53 on the last run, but its not heaps likely.

3rd October 2006, 09:37 PM
Congratz on the weekend mate, 4ac went hard.

3rd October 2006, 10:05 PM
Cheers buddy, it surprised me too!

4th October 2006, 01:48 AM
Did you manage to get a looksee into the other AE71? Askt hem what they had done to it etc.

4th October 2006, 11:53 PM
The other ae71 is a full race car, running a 4agze, slicks, locker and a full cage. I was sitting behind and the thing was launching hard. I'm not sure of what exact specs it had suspension wise unfortunately.

To be perfectly honest i was more impressed with the VW Beetle that was next to us in the pits, it was a goddamn weapon!

5th October 2006, 03:39 PM
Update: Just received the results, got a best of 54.38 placing me 73rd of 75 cars.

The young guy in the other ae71 got a 42.85 and came 20th. Gives me something to aim for for next year

5th October 2006, 10:26 PM
Ah well doesnt matter what placing. Hehe it takes balls to race with a 4AC against other high powered cars. I lift my hat for you http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/smile.gif

Good luck with the car and ill have my eyes on this topic. Keep us posted http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/smile.gif.

7th October 2006, 04:59 PM

5th April 2007, 07:15 PM
Well long time between updates!

The car now has:

SAAS D1 seats (grippy!)
New suspension (ae86 struts/brakes, t3 camber tops, AJPS 8kg front springs, ae86 ps arms, Cusco RCA, cut falcon kings in the rear, KYB shocks all round0

Taking it for its first trip to Oran park this Monday so if your heading over come say hi!

Here's what to look for



I've been feeling like a lazy bugger since gilly, vtec and drft have been going at it so I decided to pull my finger out!

5th April 2007, 07:35 PM
Nice man, update with some more pics/vids of the track day http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Good to see some decent sussy found its way into your car.

6th April 2007, 06:23 PM
Thanks Bustin, its been a long time coming.

Nice to see you acting in a mature way as always evan....

Took the beats out for a run thru Wollombi today, lapped it up, 4ac was beaten mercilessly and it kept coming back for more! Will try and get vids/pics from the drift day as well

9th April 2007, 11:03 PM
Well did the praccy day at Oran Park today BEST FUN EVER!!!111ONE

No pics or vids unless someone else took some that I don't know about, car worked perfectly, main issues were:
1) 13's flex like crap and cause understeer
2) not enough power

Suspension was brilliant though, and i did manage to pull of some decent moves (as well as dig a few trenches...oops)

28th December 2007, 11:31 AM
Well well, long time no update!

Took the t3 camber tops out as they were bottoming out and making the steering bind - added bonus of a little extra caster but lost the magic camber. Have collected pretty much everything I need for the 4age conversion, so that should be going ahead soonish (I hope, I'm still waiting on my new rings and bearings to come in)

Though I might get in one last event before the year was through and took the beasty out to Ringwood hillclimb - bit better than King Edward hillclimb, seems that Ringwood suits me a little better and I was able come 70th out of 80 - main issue was hideous under steer on the down hill section - best time was a 39.38, less than 2 seconds behind my mates 170rwkw s14, which made me happy. Now, onto the pics:

That'd be the under steer then.....

Foot flat along the straight

And a nice arty one to finish - no I don't usually have a dirty mo....
