Wolverine,

I know that, like me, your also a "closet" hot-rodder at heart.  I read your "on the ball" inputs on MSD and NOS.  

Yes, I'd like to see 18s and Potenzas on your Sammy.  With those mods alone, I can see you breaking into the 12s in the quarter.  Let's not forget the additional 30hp boost in ego from those undercar "neon" lights.  

It seems that Lone Wolf hasn't been going "online" for a few days and this thread has gotten lengthy.  I wonder what he'll have to say regarding all the brilliant ideas on this thread. ;D

Lonewolf is indisposed, he's been holed up in his garage for days figuring out where to position his "type-R" decals on the Feroza.

Lone Wolf has decided to install the Type R stickers on the fender portion just above the Turbo Intercooler - 16 Valve logo and below the Limited Edition, Super Saloon, Deluxe, Power Steering insignia.  This should easily net him about 15 hp easily.  Especially since the stickers are red and embossed.  Konti nalang lilipad na.  Just wait til he puts on his 5 Zigen/HKS tandem logo.  He should be doing 12 second quarters in no time.

JohnQ,
Actually, I started playing in the dirt and then got bit by the "fast quarter" bug.  I went back to offroading though.  Unfortunately, not soon enough.  I could have set up a couple of rigs at least on what I spent modifying my car.  By the way, this bemedalled and betrophied car sits idly in the garage hardly getting any use.  Its hard to justify using it when I have to slow down in order to go over a pebble.  go figure!
Everything we do on earth leaves a track....May they be one's we'd

Wolverine,

I know this is off-topic but what kind of car is it?

Everyone else:

This thread is getting crazy and whacked.    We have the "fast and the furious" street-racers on one side and off-roaders on the other.

JohnQ:

For the sake of answering your question, I might risk getting scolded in this room for discussing matters not pertinent to offroad vehicles but  I hope the guys will allow me to do this once.

The vehicle is a Lexus SC300 with the Toyomoto Turbo unit (Greddy TD06-20G) .  It basically mimics the Supra's engine except with a single turbo.  Horsepower is just a little higher and it does very decent low 13's or high 12's in slicks.  I dont get to use the car much these days but maybe I'll do that today.  Enough said.  Baka i-boot ako sa talkboard na ito.

Cool car.  Smaller brother of the SC400.  Don't worry, you'll be forgiven by the off-roading folks.  Your car ain't posing to be quick-- it really is.

Anyway, just to relate it to off-roading, I have to ask:  When are you going to lift it?  haha... :)

Other experiences with our friends and their ferozas aside from offroading is crossing it to the flooded areas like in open-canal area near mandaluyong city hall, araneta avenue and at lawton manila.  My friends feroza maybe at 90 hp or little up that, maybe factors are condition of the engine, set-up like sparkplugs, mufflers, etc. One of the cars that he beat is the daihatsu charade.  By the way, I don't know if you already saw the red new model feroza at the dragracingpinoy.com website during the denso iridium event last Nov 24,2001. And the black feroza of Outkast motorworks during the last sport truck show held at SM Megamall.

My,my all this talk over feroza's is so heart warming! Bwahahahahaha...... the lone wolf is currently de-fanged and de-clawed in preparation for its 2nd coming I have a few tricks up my sleeve  :P and of course due to trhis massive fund infusion i had to do to its brother the "Big Bad Wolf " I hope to have the "wolf with Sharper fangs and claws by summer. and for the record it was actually a old landcruiser 40 of the javier brothers grandfatyher the late gen. marking and a landrover series I dont know what that 1st travelled around those parts of tanay. The wolf just popularized the area and yes the Beaver that made that suicidal climb up to tatawiran is true, unfortunately it was undocumented.

Haven't seen the red Feroza dragster, no thank you, but I will pass the opportunity of viewing it on the website, I do not want to feel depressed.

I did see the Outkast Feroza and actually talked to Peter Reyes (the shops GM) about it. The Feroza's exterior, engine presentation and stance is impressive.

But the knowledgable offroad enthusiast will not be impressed by the 4" body lift, the oversized 33" tires, the over extended spring shackles, the overtorqued torsion bars. All these do not enhance the vehicle's offroad performance, in fact it has been handicapped by it, castrated even.

On the last day of the Sport Truck show, I gave Peter my businesscard and offered to help redo the Feroza. I have not heard from him since.

Freeman,

I totally agree with you on the aspect of modification and execution.  There are a bunch of ways that a result can be achieved (e.g. taller stance for larger tires) The trick though is to make sure that the principles used in executing the mod is sound and consistent with your purpose. It has been my experience from my limited exposure to this sport that the most effective modifications are the simplest ones that do not alter the vehicle so drastically that its character is severely changed and compromised.  My opinion on this matter is that Monster Trucks arent always the most proficient or effective setups for our trails.  If your setting up the vehicle for a magazine pictorial, thats a different story.  I've seen too many monster truck wannabees lying on their side or stuck in the mud being passed by these stock looking but competent vehicles.  Just an observation.....

4-inch body lift,  over torqued torsions, and over extended shackles?  It's sad to see backyard engineering in a show truck.  Chrome and paint cannot always hide "underengineering."

For practical, gearing, power, drivability and durability purposes, a street/trail Feroza should not run tires over 31-inches unless the drivetrain and engine have been properly modified.

   I missed the Feroza thread....was out for a couple of days... quite busy.

   Habol ako... whoever the owner is he just wasted the
capability of feroza. I rode with a friend who owns one........ NaiDAAN nya sa ESPANA UNG FEROZA while at that time only BUSES braved those street during floods.

  NAGPALAKPAKAN UNG MGA TAO NA NAKAKITA SA TABI NG KALSADA PATI UNG NASA BUS..... samantalang kami
nagdarasal na sana wag mamatay ang makina......may tubig na sa loob ng feroza but it was able to survive.

  I can call it  " Winning moments " !!

                 The choice is OURS ! "

The Feroza is truly an underrated 4 wheeler in this part of the world.

I am not surprised with the Espana flood anecdote. I've seen a practically box stock Feroza ford thru raging rivers.

Anyway, regarding purchasing Ferozas in the used car market. Well, the person to answer that is Wolf Den.

My meager input here is the ideal choice would be the first batch of units sold locally. These Daihatsu's were completely built up in Japan and surely had LSD's on the rear.

I have a Daihatsu Feroza ang tawag ko sa kanya Die Parusa. napaka talbog, mahal piyesa,

If you want good performance out of this vehicle i suggest gettig fluid type shocks. The gas shocks tend to make the ride stiff talaga. Don't use young ironman LoadPlus, rancho,trailmaster,monroe shocks pati bilstein. sus maryosep tatanda ka kapag nagamit mo ang mga shoks na iyon pati yung load plus ang tigas nang likod.

Regarding snorkel. A snorkel just doesn't guarantee that your air cleaner element will be 100% sealed. if you plan wading in the water, bumper hight or just slitely above bumper height is a comfortable limit. kaya na yun ng feroza nga lang kapag may truck na dumaan at umalon at inabot ka ng mas mataas na alon don't start the engine, have it towed or winched.

No need for a snorkel. Matabi mo yan sa Megamall baka isang araw wala na yung dulo ng snorkel mo pati buong assembly.
