Hey Guys,
What do you think is the best platform to build a super light, fwd car that will take in a 4g63?

I'm thinking a COLT or somelike similar.

Thoughts?

Alternatively, i might go Honda Civic or Suzuki Switft...

But would like to stay Mitsu..

Concept:
4g63 turbo.
fwd.
drag spec.

Mirage.

I bought one cheap and converted it to a Mivec V6, from an Fto...it screamed. Can only imagine it with an evo 4 5 or 6 setup in it!

Mirages are OK but the new 4g63 doesn't do it for me.. I'd like to build the older 4G in this case.

Excels and elantras are an idea! Other thoughts?

They are pretty small though so it might be a struggle fitting the engine and box between the chassis rails haha

Look at what Rob B has done in Qld. 

 

A mate of his even took his old cc coupe chassis and put in a n/a Sonata block and now runs flat 12s.
