Re: Racecar: ITA AE86 with provenance(history)

A very stiff front sway bar and good enough rear compression stroke (comparatively soft springing too) will produce that effect

Re: Restoring AE86 w/ 4AGE 16v + HKS ITB + Haltech E6X

If the car's been corner balanced, I'd consider a difference in height from one side to the other normal, as they have been adjusted to a different height.

Did you end up getting the RCAs?

Re: Restoring AE86 w/ 4AGE 16v + HKS ITB + Haltech E6X

I'm with Deuce on this one. No manufacturer has done it like that, and for a reason. The belt would literally choke you on certain decelerations, especially if you're short as you claim, the way it's put on the pic above. I'm not even talking about a crash situation. The belt has to hold you from th...

Re: Restoring AE86 w/ 4AGE 16v + HKS ITB + Haltech E6X

Yes. This is also made for not releasing the belts when the car has rolled over a side, or on its roof. And hence why you will never be able to release ir during hard cornering or braking, or any high Gs.

Check out the door mechanism that releases the belt. When putting it back together, it has to be on a certain position so that when you close the door, the belt is able to be moved freely. :)

Re: Restoring AE86 w/ 4AGE 16v + HKS ITB + Haltech E6X

I wouldn't recommend bucket seats and harness unless you fit those with a rollcage.

It's not like you have much time to react, but in case of a roll-over, the stock seatbelt and seat allow you to duck slightly and maybe prevent your head from being crushed by the roof.

Restoring AE86 w/ 4AGE 16v + HKS ITB + Haltech E6X

Jondee, you probably already assumed this, but ride height should be measured with a driver of a similar weight (or equivalent ballast) sitting on the car, shouldn't it?

Lol. There's always something to do. Either to replace or change what you think that could be upgraded. But yeah, there are "sweet plateaus" of wrenching, in which you just turn the key and drive. If you do your work well it should be more often than not :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

They're either Koito (oroginal!!) or some (probably cheap and not very good) replacement. And usually they're closed, or however you call the kind that don't allow you to get a different bulb. If they are a non-original lens, and they allow for a bulb replacement, try the philips xtremevision bulbs ...

That's the lens. Different from federal to euro beams. But I much rather like the euro beam, and they're less aggressive towards other drivers coming face on.

Dang! Or since you got the caliper unplugged, take it out, have someone at a shop take it for you (maybe easier than sourcing a butane torch and extractor?) and after that while at it, rebuild the calipers with the toyota gasket and seals repair kit ;)

Yes. That's where all the fun of driving a stick comes from :)

The brake squeal is normal with sporty pads at low speeds and medium pressure. Otherwise you might be missing some of the antisqueal hardware (metal pins in the pads/caliper)

Congrats on your resolution and progress.

The indicators and hazards do use a separate fuse, at least in the AW11, so I think it'll be the same thing here. Otherwise I can't be of much help with your other issues.
