Im back :)

So the car ran fine all day long, so I was happy. But the car seems to have to much oversteer, and its hard to controll on the edge. Soo... Well I think I need an adjustable damper... And I need to upgrade to 165 or 175 wide tyres. I was going with 155, and when I put up the 165, it was soooo much better... Next time... :)

Vids, and pics to come soon :)

btw I have to say, many people came and sad a few nice words about the car-cars. Its truly paying of to be with a lada and not with a bimmer (99% of the driftcars are bmws..). So its the harder way, but lets hope, that its the better way :) Im too lazy and busy to upload the vids, so it may take a few days.

i watched the vid from your AutoX event, not only do the Lada's actually sound pretty cool, and seem to go pretty good, that track was awesome, i do a little AutoX... and i'd have loved trying that track.

Wow Mancs! That lada of yours is pretty cool! Fast car! (looks fast!)
Very nice videos!

What engine is it? How much hp/nM???? And you have a shortend gearbox? Or is it that short in a normal lada?
Sounds like the gearbox is similar to my short gearbox.

Grts!

Hi Josty!

well we didnt run the engine on a dyno, so we can only guess, maybe around 110-120 hp and similar nm? Dont know really.

The transmission is factory, 1-2 is ok, but third... :S Its very long.

Ratios:
1: 3,667
2: 2,100
3: 1,361
4: 1,0

So its not to good, but a good trany is costy.. :(

IT wouls help a lot thats true..

Btw, wouldn't a mirafiori gearbox slot right into a lada? Maybe you could look at those? Also, a 5 speed lada box could be better?

Nah, the 5 speed lada box is the same, just the 5th is 0.7 :( Fiat transmissions are good, but very rare here :S

Do you have any mroe interior pics of the car? I'd be very interested in seeing more of the seats, steering wheel, gauge cluster, etc. This is the best car at Finalgear, hands down.:)

Btw, about the Mirafiori gearbox, it's ratios are:

1: 3.612
2: 2.045
3: 1.357
4: 1.000
5: 0.870

Should be better than the lada units, its also stronger and supposedly almost bolts straight in, I'd look at them, even if they are hard to find, I mean, you surely have salvage yards etc. there?

^ Hm actually it does look better! Hm I do got a few pics of the interrior, will dig it up later ;) I bought new gauge and some carbon parts for the interrior ;) Will post em up later. Btw my tranny problem is solved:

Update, I bought a Fiat 2000ccm engine with a sport transmission :mrgreen: The engine is ripped apart for now, and being rebuilt as we speak. Its going to make around 140-150ish hp. sounds good :) Factory 130 hp engine from a Fiat 130 TC. With stock cams, stock 1.6 L pistons (gives higher compression ratio from factory 8.5:1 to 10.5:1 (if i remember well...)), ported polished head, new bearings sealings etc. And my dellorto carbs of course :) Zola bought a Lancia engine (same as the fiat btw), its rebuilding has not yet started. Its a bit weaker (factory 122hp), and it was an Injection model, but the injection has to go, carb power :) Will make the same amout of power.

The transmission is made from the factory tranny, but with straight cut gears, and very, very good ratios:

1: 2,89
2: 1,89
3: 1,51
4: 1,19
5: 1,0

Same as the factory Lada VFTS tranny. Il shoot some pics of the engine tomorrow! The first gear is quite long, but Im not going to use it to much so... And let us not forget that this engine isnt 1600 ccm but 2000... It has a lot more torque, and in the lower rev range. So Im quite buzzed up how well its going to be :) Fingers crossed!

Just a pic I love:

Possibly a bad joke but...have you also thought abouth changing the body of your car? You know, so it doesn't look like a Lada :)
(I'm sorry, it's just that I've seen way too many Lada's in my life, and I've had enough of them)
