Ryan’s SW11.  If you are confused about this seemingly wrong chassis code, then here’s the deal.  This is an AW11 powered by a 3SGTE from an ST205 Celica.  Consider it a sign of this cars purpose and intention.  The stock 4AG, even in supercharged form, is still a motor that is primarily about aesthetics and feel.  The AW11 is not a small car, and the stock 1.6 is hard pressed to keep up with Toyota’s renowned 2.0L… at least when dollars are considered.

With 275’s on all four corners, and a specialized suspension set up, this car hopes to be the fastest fendered solo 2 car in Calgary.  Of course… it will be tested far beyond.  As of 2010, this is a strictly trailer-ed car.  Despite that, it maintains a full interior and many other amenities as mandated by solo rules.  Future plans include new dampers and more weight reduction.  We are approaching the limit of allowable modifications for SSM, and looking for new ways to make the car better.

Ryan still hasn’t returned from his trip to the states, so I haven’t had time to be de-briefed in detail… but via a short conversation he did present something that may be a problem with his current set up.  It is typical for fast auto-x cars to run stupidly large rubber.  An auto-xer can get away with it more so […]

On Saturday, Ryan pulled the SW11 up to Edmonton for an ASA auto-x at Namao air base.  This isn’t a venue I’ve ever been able to drive.  I guess the three hour drive has been a deterrent, but in addition to that a background check is required in order to get security clearance to visit the base.  I feel like […]

SWPull---20psiI told you a few weeks ago that Ryan hit Speedtech's show n' shine and threw his car up on the Dyno there. I also told you what numbers he made: here is the proof. The above pull was the last one... made with 20 pounds of boost. [...] And this was 18pounds if I remember correctly. At the time boost made was crystal clear... but now it's all hazy. [...]

Oh yeah…
