PS13 – Attack Mode

You probably already figured this out by now but I am in no rush with this project, I have been waiting for a bit of headspace to get a clear direction on where I am going with the car, I was motivated by the fact that I had to shift it when the Hilux returned, I welded up all the engine bay and got it all rolling again.


In my next post I will detail why I haven’t had the time to properly invest into the project but more on that soon.


The motor has to come back 100mm until its in its final resting place but I also want to lower it 50mm, for this I need to make a custom sump and pick up so in a couple of months (you will understand after I tell you whats happening this weekend) I will get stuck in to it and get it all done.


Theres a heap of engine work I also want to complete but more on that later.

  1. This thing is soo cool best s chassis in the world! it’s where my love of all things ETS started sstoked to see it being reborn! !

  2. Looking forward to more of the story to unfold about this car, keep up the good work mate!

  3. Nigel,
    I am interested in tubbing my S13. I have not done it before, and I dont have the money for heaps of material to take a shot at making them. Is there any site on the internet with a basic template that I could copy onto my sheets of steel. Similar to the ones you cut out of this when it was turbocharged. Thanks.

    • I use CAD for this sort of thing – Cardboard Aided Design, basically mock them up in Cardboard first, check clearances, etc, then use the card as a template to cut your material.
