Been looking at some desert crossing videos and some videos of my fathers old sandrail.

Remembering that lifted AW11, and how high SW20's sit stock.... Build a sandrail/off road SW20.

Thats definitely going on the "list of possible projects once the AW11 project is completed (ETA 2018/2019)

AW11 MR-2 Gymkahana. If you don't want to see it all skip to 1min in, Advan AW11. So light and sounds amazing.




Supposedly 422hp 3SGT AW11. Looks like an RC car when it accelerates, too bad he crashed it lol.

This is the video that tipped me over the edge and made me decide to buy myself an MR2 as a project:
