Took the car out to MSRH this morning and ran a few sessions. It did great, and then took me to lunch and back home. I'm gonna call it a win for today.

Yay! Hopefully this will be the last time you have to drop the transmission until it's time to replace the clutch.

 

Now that it's working do you have any other mods planned for the Lexus?

Good question! The thing is needs the most is a good seat and harness. Not sure what I'm going to do for that, but the current setup sucks on track. It's lovely on the street, though.

Took the car back out to the track on Saturday. It continued to run great and it is fun to drive. It definitely needs a seat and harness. Right now I'm thinking Sparco Evo seat, harness bar, and Schroth ASM harness.

 

I've already ordered a better camera mount, because this one sucks.

Yeah! Also on the list is to redo the exhaust. It's a little too quiet and the actual exhaust work is craaaaap. Probably will go single muffler for weight, too.

Also... the 1UZ has an interesting history and can be made to do fun things...

Was the last mount a coat hanger and duct tape?  :biggrin:

Dropped the car off at Mayco today. They're going to build a nice rollbar for it. I am so excited to be working towards a car with seat, harness, and safety. It's been a while since I've really driven 10/10ths.

Picked the car up from Mayco yesterday. I think it looks great.
