Project Cars Update - The Last Wordon

The Project Car Fleet

The Nissan is back and slowly recovering from its time with VRT. We've replaced a lot of the parts that we discovered to be stolen, the Jim Wolf twin-turbo engine has been installed by M-Workz and the car is up and running. Corvette Z06 beware, we're coming.

Project WRX V.08
As you have just read, Project WRX V.08 has beaten the new STI's handling performance numbers, and there are still so many more tweaks to go. How many other cars can we beat with the new WRX?

Project Evo IX
Our BSP autocross project has just received its new suspension and is itching to turn up the boost. How much power can we make within the rules?

Project NSX
Can you say extreme makeover? Our version of the now-affordable NSX is currently undergoing a full aerodynamic change. You should see the pile of OEM Honda boxes that Engineering Editor Chen has amassed.

Project Focus
Work continues on the silver Ford and we have the Koni Yellows sitting in Editor Leh's office to prove it. Plus, the unstoppable hauler is still the only car in our fleet that can hold eight tires on the way to the track.

Project Backmarker Civic
Senior Editor Hope and his EF-chassis Civic have made a wrong turn into car-show land. He's reassembled his multi-piece wheels twice and is now digging through containers of junk trying to find the perfect JDM bodywork to complement them.

Project BMW 325i
Our cheap rear-driver is a veritable blank slate for upgrades. We all think it'd be great to strip the car down and see how much weight we can take out by removing useless 'luxury' features. Someone just has to convince former SCC staffer James Tate-it is his car, after all.

Project Corolla
The red brick is still going strong and we're getting closer to carrying out the definitive AE86 engine swap. The flat red paint stays, though.
