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...
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.
^ 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 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:
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!
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)
