I guess it could have come across as an attempt to get you guys clicking on the "wrong" links :LOL:
Never trust an Estonian...


But really, cool car - do you have a build thread for it?

Good to see OP making progress fixing this!

World Rally Champion is an Estonian now, so we are making some progress here.

My car is a 4WD prototype rallycar with only engine and body from a Fiesta. Not sure if it is suitable for these forums as a separate build thread? There's heaps of fun custom stuff though as we built it from scratch.

Lately we have been building the engine to really find a bulletproof solution for some long stressful abuse. The 1.6 Ecoboost block is a weak one and we've had to spend lots of $$$ on it...basically found my way to this forum searching how others are dealing with this.

All jokes over here - sarcasm doesn't come across well through text.

If you post up a build thread I'm sure you'll get many eyes on it - if you're using parts of the Fiesta ST drivetrain, you belong here.

Yes, he is that indeed!

I just wish that Mr. Wilson could have held onto 'Oyt' as a driver for his team, as I knew that he would eventually win the whole deal.

I guess it takes countless coin to compete with all of those trillion$$ of Camry/Corolla bucks at the Nippon Giant's disposal for their WRC budget. [:(]

Alright so here goes with most if not all mods. Mountune mrx longblock with lightweight pulleys and oil control system, 2jr intake, catless downpipe and side exit exhaust, fidanza lightweight flywheel and custom spec stage 3+ clutch to fit, 4.3:1 final drive with mfactory lsd using motul gear 300, 3.5 bar map sensor, Peron aux fuel kit with 54 lb injectors, whoosh short shifter and shifter and transmission cable bushings, whoosh v3 intercooler, x-57rs turbocharger. Hopefully this will get me to 400 at the wheels.

That... That's going to be stupid fun.

What sort of wheel / tire package will you go with?

I'm gonna keep the oem rims right now and I'm riding on some okay tires. When those go bad in like 30-40k miles maybe I'll change em

Yeah but all this stuff came at a hefty price tag and I can't let myself do anymore right now. Credit card hurts lol. Plus, right before the engine blew I got a set of brand new tires. 205/40R-17 KUMHO ECSTA PA51 XL.

Just be aware, I'm running 225's R888R's and still want more traction in the front!!

Completely understand the dent in your pocket though - I've got 3 project vehicles...
