There are many trucks/suv's (stock mini class) that go through the 1000 and 500 that are very stock except for the rollcage, interior's and basic suspension. You can't just run a stock truck through there due to, 1. the rules/safety requirements and 2. 95% of the time they wouldn't survive.

Mazda RX-7 GSL, it is my very first car and i got it for dirt cheap. I have a turbo from a second gen turbo2 and a front mount intercooler that awaits it, all i need to do is convert it to EFI.

Only current mods are cat removal.

Old picture but it's not like much has changed.



1998 Chevrolet S10 LS, 2WD, 3.73 rear end, 2.2L I4, 5-speed manual, PBR front brakes, TruXport tonneau cover, no front swaybar

I'm a member of a forum called "Dezert Dimes" (dezertdimes.com), it's a bunch of guys that are working to establish the Chevy S10 and GMC Sonoma as a legitimate light truck prerunner platform, right alongside the Ford Ranger and Toyota T100/Tacoma. Even though my truck's essentially bone stock, these guys really had a lot of information to offer me for when I finally put enough money together to start building. In the near future I hope to end up with something like this
