Motor, controller, instruments ordered!

Yeah, I don't want to get into a lot of fabricating if I don't have to. And I have no idea what kind of increase this is going to show. My best guess is the car is going to drive like it's always going downhill. Which shows me around 100 mpg. As the speed gets higher, the rpms in the motor get higher too and it cancels each other out. But I'll have proper gearing at least!

Robert: I've heard the opposite, people weld their center diff and get a RWD drift car. The EA (80's) Subies might be possible to do something like this, since they have a real transfer case and selectable FWD/4WD/LO
