Why the hitch? And I'm guessing the MB Quart wheels are just the daily wheels, right?

daaam that's a nice machine mate, and I love those seats paired with with 5 point seat belt harnesses, I was thinking about doing it in my car, for safety reasons, I'm just not sure how they cope with how airbag works, so I guess I need to do some more reading on the subject.

you gonna lose the hitch then?
weight beyond the wheels is no bueno.

I think there is a guy that posts on FJ with an EP Focus. he races with the Idaho region, his SM is Terrible1 or something like that. i'd get with him for some info on your build.
