Cool New Project, something a little different, AWD EvoGTR

I've been away from the forum for a couple of years busy with work, needless to say I have been busy beavering in the back ground designing the new project. It wont be every ones cup of tea, well certainly not the Evo purists among you but it will be fun either way.

Evo 8 with VR38 power


Purpose: Road, Circuit, Top Speed and the odd Drag strip run!

More to follow but here is a teaser shot and before you ask, yes its all wheel drive!

Watch here, instagram & FB #armchairtuner for updates.

Car will be 4WD.

I'm not sure on the exact weight comparison between 4G63 and the VR38 but what I do know is that the weight forward of the front axle line is massively reduced compared to the oem evo configuration. Only time will tell when it goes on the corner weight scales.

Yes, there are a few transmission options now for the VR38.
