    Parts room haha - Yes those are brand new KE10 Tail lights!



    Ke70 cut down cross member with stock Ke70 LCA with Ke70 struts with Ke10 top hat.. works nicely although RCA's and Custom Adjustable LCAs that are shorter are needed, so are camber top hats.



    14x8 -15 SSR Meshies.. Look nice as and suit the car perfectly!

    I've actually just payed for a 3SGE BEAMS motor for the car. Rack and pinion works well. I do have a few front bars. I want $300 for a mint one or I got bent rusty ones you can have for $200 but theres a few people who said they want it but haven't paid yet so yeah.. might not have anymore. Also do you know Jono in Tassy... his got a ke10 !

    Saab Interceptors to be widened to 8" next week



    Nice fat 205/65's

    I get my 3SGE BEAMS this weekend hopefully. I picked up the Nissan S13 gear a few hours ago and plan to bolt it all in tomorrow morning on my custom LCA's... Need to cut the Spring perch off the nissan struts and modify them abit



    I'm not actually sure if I'm going to use the Nissan stuff. I need to do some measurements first, make sure it works.


    Either way I have to:
    -Shorten the LCA
    -HSD Coil over sleeve kit

    Ke70:
    Pros:
    -Bolts in
    -Its all standard
    -No steering geometry issues

    Cons:
    -4x114.3
    -Brakes are small

    S13:
    Pros:
    -Adjustable camber
    -Brakes are sorted out

    Cons:
    -4x114.3

    How i'm going to overcome my 4x114.3 stud pattern issue for a while... I got a set of SAAB 900 1985-86 4x114.3 chasers, same as the Saab 4x108 chasers on the rear just different stud pattern so that fixes the wheels problem for a little bit. I will end up changing all the brakes later on me thinks D:









    Low much?



    RRRRMMMM



    I really like these rims haha!



    The Camber is adjustable, the spring height is adjustable, the lock is amazing and the ackerman angles are very very close to original KE10 spec. But honestly, who knows if it works until you try it. By moving the wheel up and down on the shock I've noted that theres virtually any bump steer which is a good sign.

    But in all seriousness... it looks rediculous.



    At the moment I'm stuck, don't have any 4x114.3 rims so the car has to sit on space savers





    Shot of the Diff setup. I still got some work to do on the rear end but it is substantially easier than the front part of the car.

    If i haven't mentioned... I'm putting a 3s Beams motor into the car. It's going to be sick

    Any day now the halfcut should turn up

    Bloody hell, nice work. Can't believe I hadn't spotted this thread until now!

    I have a soft spot for KE10s...

    Though you should be slapped in the back of the head for putting an illest sticker on a KE10... lol

    Nice build thread.

    Can't wait to see the progress

    It will be quick, well balanced and hopefully should steer, point and feel the same as my gearbox superkart
