I think the muffler is the best part.

Looks like a ton of fun to play with.

I like it.Is there anything that you can move to the rear by the hatch to help with it nosing in when you jump it?

I'm glad that you like it. :)

monstaru: I'm from Finland. That car is just my daily driver. Opel Omega, German cop car replica ;)

uberoo: Cooling system is maby the only thing that can be moved back for now. I'm going to install a Suzuki Sj410 t-case with 3" lift and try to move front and back subframe forward 4-8 inches and engine couple of inches back. That should move the center of gravity. Also rollcage and bigger gas tank (25L -> 75L) will help.

Scott in Bellingham: At earliel pictures its a stock subaru radiator. Latest radiator is from Vw Golf mk2 1,3C with radiator cap fitting from Yamaha Exciter 2 (snowmobile) :)

Has anyone done t-case install with 3" lift? Project pics would help. I'm wondering about front diff and engine placement...

t case lifts are normally done with 6-10" lifts because otherwise ground clearance would be sucky.unless you cut out the floor.there still wouldn't be alot of clearance under the front diff though.

Time to update front suspension. I'm trying to fit Lecacy hubs and shocks (2wd BACK shocks).

Here is Ej18 2wd front(lower in picture) and back shocks.
Posted Image

Back shocks seem to have 2" more travel than front at 8,8" of travel :)

Planning to run on 12" wide 27" ATV tires with redrilled rims. Only 10" wide 25"'s in picture.

Made some 5*100 -> 6*139,7 adapters :)

Lots of clearance :)

Btw. Does the 2wd inner joints fit ea tranny? or do i have to fabricate custom shafts....

that's a great!

I was wondering what the fairlead was doing by the wheel until i watched the video.

Is the camber on the left wheel off, or is that an optical illusion

Thank you Tommy.
I will visit this link regularly. My previos 3 Leones came from Germany, but it becomes harder and harder to find Leone in Germany.

I recommend hood pins so you hood doesn't fly up and smash whats left of your windshield.:brow:

with no window you could just wear ski goggles though...

Awesome video through!

Hood didn't leave a mark on the windshield. Fortunately hood is so flimsy with that hole in the middle ;) There is rubber hood straps trying to keep hood closed. Next time i might remember to hook them properly :)

...btw the windshield is a nice accessory driving around at -25 degrees Celsius (-13 degrees Fahrenheit) ;)
