    Toyota Starlet KP61 Rally car build

    My Toyota Starlet KP61 Rally build.

    Sorry about the bad quality photos

    Tubs and Turretts to suit 15" wheels


    Boot floor cut out and dropped to make room for a larger fuel tank and dry sump tank.
    You can see also the large gearbox tunnel and room made for the diff clearance.
    I decided to put exhaust tunnels down both sides, so that any engine can be put in the car at a later stage.


    Link boxes and Watts linkage
    Front arches raised to suit 15" wheels

    Full custom cages Roll cage fitted.

    Fuel/oil tanks are also covered in, incase of fire.

    Car is currently being Sandblasted and then its straight off to the paint shop.

    If you'd like to see more photos of the build, simply like our facebook page - www.facebook.com/BMV.RallyTeam

    Not sure on engine and gearbox yet, but likely a 1600 16v vauxhall and dog box to get me started

    Hi Iím wanting to do similar to my kp61. What arch kit did you use? Monte Carlo from gartrac? And what size axle did you use to determine offset of wheels etc?
    Iíve checked out the Facebook page for the rally team and them wheels look the nuts.
