The guys at Stick Figure/Volitile Ram Racing continue to amaze. They have the (Mr.) FX32 right on schedule to make it to Sonoma in March. For anyone who isn’t familiar with this project, it boils down to this: Weld the back half of an MR2 to the front half of an FX16 to make a single race car with two seperate drivetrains driving all four wheels. What could go wrong?
At this time, the two chunks of Toyota goodness have been fused into one car that actually looks like a car again. The roll cage is nearly finished, both engines are in, and a theme is being developed.
A million details always seem to remain, and this project is no exception to that rule. Wiring, brakes, fuel delivery, instrument clusters, and cooling systems are still on the list.
It is really quite impressive how well the fitment of the two bodies came together. Except for a few minor visual cues, nobody would guess that the heart of an MR2 beats behind the driver’s seat of an ordinary-looking FX.
