    Theres a dude on yt who did the g35 swap. Cant remember his channel. Made a sick drift missle, rear cage frame etc, then totalled it on track. So it goes. You got this. Make a thread if you go for it! Would love to do the same someday on a 2wd.

    This is going to be cool. I'd love to see the progress if you don't mind sharing.

    I've been looking to swap new seats into my truck. I think Scion TC seats would be good.

    Personally, I've been looking for something like BMW M3 Coupe seats.
    Those seats have a computer in the seat that has to match with a computer in the car. However, I think I can wire power directly to the seat switches and bypass the computer and disconnect the airbags.
    The big downside is weight and when I do find them for less money they sell very quickly.

    Very cool! Definitely make a build page when you get started. Needs slammed on its nuts and wrapped in a cool color!

    After mountains of reading and videos ....I have come up with the idea of using a 5th gen Camaro rear cradle and diff ...for the simple reason that the shocks are all self contained in this unit ..and I would not have to build shock towers added to the frame ...also it will give the back a few more inches of width ...which im not completely opposed to ....thoughts ????
