Re: AP RACING 4 piston forged calipers

Were these going to be run on an ae86? Is there a bracket for them or blueprints for a bracket to be made to mount them onto an ae86?

Re: CA 30-Year Rolling Smog Exemption Petition

I see these "online petitions" pop up once in a while. I always wonder if signing them even means anything. I still did though, I really want the 30 year exemption back. Same here. I sign to hope for the best, but they have never seemingly done anything in the past to change the laws. The...

Re: New ROTA Wheels - "DORI DORI"

I wish I had cheaper wheels on before I backed into a new curb around the corner in my neighborhood and dinged the lip on my Panasport rear wheel... But in reality, even if I did have Rota's or some other wheel, it would still bug me that there was an imperfection that I can see. I like the look of ...

Re: Picked up an SR-5 coupe

Oh, and if you ever decide to swap out the head unit, please contact me as I am looking for an OEM radio with pigtails.
I would buy yours at your asking price (as long as it is within reason) and could send you the Kenwood CD/MP3 player with trim to sweeten the deal.

What a fine example of a well maintained, original UN-molested car! Today, you would not expect to be able to run across a car like this, in this condition after all these years. Even if one did come across a single owner car, so much time has passed, most cars would be pretty beaten up by time itse...

The mid-rise lift like the one pictured arent that much cheaper (if at all) than a 2 post lift. The difference is where you can install them. A 2 post life requires a deeper concrete pad than most home garages have to be safely installed and used. A midrise lift sits on the floor not requiring to be...

Re: Best AE86 Dash Mat and where to get it?

I believe they were made to be adhered directly over an existing dash. But if the dash is too damaged, or lifting in places, you would have to remove the layer, sand it down, then adhere the pad to the top of the dash. All depends on the existing condition.

Dash pads hold up well but if its a daily that gets beat up by the sun, I would recommend a windshield cover or something like this as it will certainly warp over time. I have had my car parked outside in very hot weather many times, but its not a daily occurrence. No signs of warping. I do plan on ...

I could never fathom using a replica seat for something so important in safety. I highly doubt any safety testing is performed on reps, and injury or death is not work skimping out on even if you do not run at the track.

I think ae86Nights will be the only venue where the ae86 is dominant. I would get used to going to events in which the FR-S dominates the ae86 as more and more people of all ages seem to be buying them and modding them for track and shows.
