Rhett del Rosario’s Cressida GX81 Project Drift Car by Toycool Garage (Part 2) 1


This is part 2 of Rhett del Rosario’s project car drift car. A Toyota Cressida GX81 aka Chaser/MKII/Cresta.

In part 1, we showed you the modifications being done on the drivetrain, which should help the car drift; as of course, this ride is being built to compete in the top drifting competitions in the country.

Here in part 2, we’ll show you further developments on the engine, and exterior styling departments.

Currently being fitted is a Wonder Body Kit… with a twist. It’s actually a kit made for the Nissan Cefiro, which Rhett has modified to suit the Cressida! And boy has he done an awesome job. It looks as if it was made for the Cressida!

Here are some shots of the body kit mocked up onto the car, just to show you how it would look like once fully installed. The stock bumper is still seen under the air dam. Once that’s removed, it will make way to fit the intercooler for the engine.

Beautiful lines for the Cressida. Rhett plans to keep the car’s stock paint, with the body kit being white so it would stand out during the sideways action it would be going through on the drifting competitions.

As for propulsion, providing more than enough power to send the car sideways is a 1JZGTE engine. It’s an A/T which Rhett will soon be converting to manual transmission. It also has a mid-sump which Rhett will also modify so to clear the engine crossmember, or replace with a front-sump setup.

So far, everything is looking good! Can’t wait to see this car in action on the 4th leg of the 2010 Lateral Drift Championships which will be held at Eastwood Libis.

Check back with us soon for more updates about the ongoing project. See you soon!
