Again, Thanks to Jim at VMS Motorsports; I finally have the car on the ground and rolling!!! Still lots to do. Working on going through the engine and getting that mounted is the next part of the project. Those of you that have been on the site for awhile know it has been a struggle for me to get this far. I am super excited!!!!

Jase,

I have parts coming from Jim as well. Hope to have my car on the ground Monday. I know Jim will come through. Always has!
I'm in Montana; Takes 3 days to get here. Not sure where you are located. I promise that he will treat you right.

Appreciate the info. I left Jim a message from his site and he called me right up and got me taken care of. IM sure most of the dealers on here are good to deal with but I can tell you that Jim was great. Parts going out today.

Just FYI for anyone else on this quest who finds this thread - The right side Toyota caliper is pretty much impossible to find. After hours on the web and on the phone I found a few left side calipers but I came up with ZERO on the right side.

The Wilwood brake kit costs about $370.00 and includes everything you need to convert. You can buy the stock Toyota calipers at most auto parts stores.
You might want to contact Jim @ VMS Motorsports or Gerad @ Go Motorsports.

Welcome to the LegendRacer family.

Hello all, I'm new to legends cars and I have a car that is setup for the Toyota calipers but I don't have any. I know there has been a conversion to Wilwood but I have no idea where to start. Is there a direct bolt on replacement that will fit the old spindles or do I have to replace everything?

Interior tins all painted flat black. Kind of miss the blue that they were painted. Looks pretty good though!

I have not seen any video of this. With that said; There are always going to be people who will do whatever to gain a 10th or 2. If cheating was called and the proper paperwork was filed for a protest; Then the tires should have been tested.

SO I have it on good authority, that there is video circulating of the #82 Car driven by Caleb Heady in the Pro Division at Thursday Thunder at Atlanta Motor Speedway sanding and treating the new Hoosier tires before races (which isn't allowed). INEX was made aware and refused to investigate because 82 is the national points leader. How is this fair to other teams who invest time and money for a race that is supposed to be on an even playing field? I will also add the previous track record was 15.6, and the 82 was running consistent 15.5s. I don't know how this sport is expected to grow with the dirty "good ole boys" protecting their own.

Kind of a bitter sweet day... Stripped off the old sponsor decals from Jim's old hood and the decals from the interior and body of Craig's old car. Was like stripping away history.  :'( :'( :'( Hated to do it; But have to get started on the body so that I can start getting it ready for paint. I was able to salvage a couple of decals and stuck them on my toolbox for motivation. Rear end parts should be here on Monday.

Parts ordered for the rear end and wheels/ tires on the front. Should be rolling very soon!
I think I will get the interior cleaned up and painted; Also get my seat mounted while I am waiting on parts.
