Re: Garage Star vs T3 Baby Daddy brake kits

I was dead set on doing a brake upgrade. My car will be about 75% street use on stock motor and decently sticky tires. I was talked out of doing upgraded calipers etc. The majority of the advice given was just to upgrade the pads and the brake lines. I decided to go with a street/sports pad and som...

Re: Celica Supra Wheels - Aftermarket Lug Nuts

If I was running longer wheel studs I'd go with open ended lug nuts. ... but the real concern should be the lug seat in the wheel. Most aftermarket wheels/lugnuts are angled so its okay, but the oem wheels aren't always the case. Not sure about the celica supra wheels, but most, if not all, oem Toyo...

Re: Shock Dyno Data Anyone?

I would bet that the Hitachi Automotive Systems corporate office already has hundreds of benchmarking studies on file, for all major shock suppliers. See if they are willing to share the info. That would narrow the field for any additional testing. davew7 I'm sure they do, but unfortunately I'm jus...

So, I'm sitting here bullsh*tting at work and just thought of something that would be kind of cool, if anyone here is a nerd like I am.

Re: Newb question on how to guide for ITBs on JDM 4AG Bluetop w/ MAP

... definitely keep us posted on progress! I know I'll be paying attention.

So, I took my AE86 to my first track day ever and absolutely destroyed my pads after the first 20 minute session. I ended up snapping a bleeder valve on one caliper too towards the end of the day.
