Due to a permanent case of temporary insanity, we decided to build a sibling for the twin engine MRolla by cramming the rear end of a Toyota MR2 (AW11) under the hatch of a Corolla FX16 (AE82). Cutting commenced January 2013 and it's first race was March 2013.

Weight: 2831 Pounds. 52% front, 48% rear.
Front engine: USDM small port 4AGE, 5 speed manual.
Rear engine: USDM small port 4AGE, automatic.

*After the 2015 Miller race, Scott Ith, a regular local teammate and collaborator, purchased the FX32.
