Hi guys! sorry that I haven't posted updates in a while. the new peanut has been distracting me from my build and making it hard to focus lol. Now I'm daily driving the new peanut (F20c swap complete) Here's some pics from Funny Night in San Jose recently:

Even though I run a F20c, this was a "V-tec" meet and I wasn't sure how the Corolla would be received. I was happy to hear how many people liked the car/build. :D :D :D

I'll be refocusing on finishing the first project I started.

I'm combining the starlet steering column with the TE21 column since I'm converting to Rack and Pinion. The Rack is aw11

I finally have the AE86 crossmember modified and reinforced painted and ready to go. The cutout isn't pretty but I needed the clearance for the oil pan. I also moved one of the steering rack mounts approx 1 1/8th inch out for clearance. Everything on this build is pretty tight so every bit counts especially I'm wanting to keep my ride height pretty low.

Since I converted to ae86 rear end/disk brakes, i needed to modify the emergency brake cabling

The finding a front cable with the correct length saved me a lot of work. Hopefully this will help others who are going with ae86 rear end.

Since the s2000 6 speed transmission is so long, I needed to shorten the ebrake handle for clearance: Image
Sorry for the upside down pic. I'll add some finished shots later.

The rear cables are just two ae86 driver side cables (if I recall correctly) i'll check the box and confirm.

Rolap,
so which cable did you end up using for the front cable.
