d16z6 swapped mini cooper rt4wd jrsc rallycross car
Greetings from Phoenix, Arizona!
As the title suggests, I am starting to build a rally cross "monster mini" utilizing a d16z6 from a Del Sol Si, a JRSC, and a 4wd drivetrain from a civic wagon (the main reason for me joining the forum), and riding on modified polaris rzr suspension.
I have already built a d16z6 JRSC mini cooper, but the car had sentimental value to me so I restored it back to original. I then bought a beater mini shell (one that i dont mind hacking up). I have since rebuilt the d16z6 and the JRSC blower and have all of the conversion parts boxed up awaiting their new home.
I need to determine what I will need to carry out the 4wd conversion. Ive found that miata rear trailing arms can be fitted with some slight modification, i will have custom axles made and I will have to modify the tunnel and rear trunk floor to fit the diff and driveshaft.
I look forward to hearing some feedback and Ill try my best to keep you all updated on the progress 😊
