That's really low. Looks good, though.

I have 2 toyotas that mostly qualify I guess. 90 standard cab autocross truck that's dumped in the weeds static. Mini notch out back but it needs a bigger notch and higher fender wells so it doesn't bottom out and go infinite spring rate.


92 x cab with a flat bed. It's lowered 3" via torsion bars and blocks but I'm considering putting it on bags if I don't go full retard and do 05+ sthuperduties/links & coilovers/aw4/atlas 4 speed first.

The autocross truck is a riot. Will it hang with miatas? No. Will it beat up on most anything else with similar power? Hell yes.

1 ton torsion bars and sway bar, kyb monomax shocks and 240 wear tires is a great start. I also did a 9 lb flywheel and ceramic clutch with a 38/38 weber with an LCE header but that's not required for fun.

Are your I familiar with the guy in NY that autocrosses a Nissan Hardbody? Would be cool to see your yota and his D21 head to head! Minis can be impressive in autocross!


Not sure if I've posted here for a while. I'm still in the mini game. Got a 86.5 Nissan Hardbody single cab, short box 4wd. It's now on 31s, has long tubes, mild cams and a JDM VG33 V6. Only makes an extra 40hp and 40ftlbs over factory! Currently looking for a donor Frontier with a supercharger to MPFI swap it and supercharge. I'm rocking a 6 puck ceramic clutch and a stupid heavy flywheel. Didn't weigh it but it's like picking up a sack of dog food. The 29lb out of my Audi felt a lot lighter. The truck doesn't rev quickly but it sure does have low end torque!


I've got a line on what might be my next project. An 84 Datsun 2wd on air. Motor is quite tired so it might get a turbo Kubota V2203 diesel as I have a buddy that'll give me one if I get the truck. Been waiting on the world to go less insane and DMV to start doing something before I get the truck. I'm thinking 250-300ftlbs in a tiny 2wd with a 5 speed would be a riot!
