Work starts on the Corolla

Update by Tim Suddard to the Toyota Corolla GT-S project car
Aug 20, 2001

Work has finally started on the Toyota Corolla. We’ve installed a set of Revolution wheels that are wrapped in Bridgestone’s new Potenza S-03 rubber. This is a very sticky tire for the street and even performed well in autocross conditions at a CFR event with Gabe Barrett behind the wheel.

The timing belt and water pump were recently replaced, as their time was up. Toyota’s 4AGE motor is very reliable, but after 140,000-plus miles, some work was needed. Later this week, we will be taking it to an upholstery shop to get some of the small tears in the seats fixed.
