He has an interesting setup for he steering rack too, i'm trying to check the 1stgencelica forum where his main build thread is, but its not working from work.

Yes.....yes that video is very impressive :) (im not meant to check streaming stuff from work :o )

EDit:
Ironically this guy got his diff done at Weir performance too HKS7MGT. How about that
Edit Edit....
oh He already knows hah.... I think 4.7 ratio is also what alot of guys use on the AE86DC club....worth a read of their stuff if you want to find more info......

The chequered flag accross the front fender looks like the "Top secret" chequered flag on their white RA28's...now that i've checked they also have a chequered flag in their logo.

Edit:
Heres the link for the white and blue ra28 they do (MWP's link)

Some GroupB goodness!
The awesome Celica TA64 (aka "Whistling Pig") is in this video now and then.
TA64 = similar to a RA60 sedan but powered by a 4T-GTE producing 300-600HP.

a dude doing a build in the states on 1stgencelica just found a 4TGTE by accident. he was hunting for a 22r when the wrecker offered him the engine as a celica twin cam. to his surprise it was a 4TGTE. i personally don't think he knows what the fuck he has even though we all told him its supper rare engine

Thats one lucky guy.
Hopefully he sells it on to someone that knows what to do with it.
