Anybody racing one of these things? I know of one for sale and on paper it makes sense,150 lb. or so more than my GTI and 132 HP instead of 108. Do you race one or against one?

The only one worth having - for race purposes, is the '90 Prizm GSi (with a "5" as the 8th digit of the VIN). It has the small-port Toyota 4AGE motor, which is a screamer (base for the Atlantic). I've never seen one racing, but they are fairly rare even on the street. I heard there was one in CenDiv that was bloody fast in a straight line.

Being as how I absolutely love the 4AG motors, I've seriously thought about getting one and building it. Getting suspension parts shouldn't be that tough - after all, it's a Corolla. I also think they may be a little short on brakes, but I'm not sure.

I'd say go for it! And let us know. I seriously believe that properly developed, they could be the car to beat in ITB. (And if you do - I have a deal on an ultra-rare LSD for the transaxle. http://Forums.ImprovedTouring.com/it/smile.gif )

best power to weight ratio in it's class. I am building a suzuki swift gti, which has the second best power to weight ratio. I think it would be an interesting choice, but the development of the car would be all on you, and parts may be expensive.
