Supras are fun...the only thing I hated when I had one was that the downpipe would scrape pulling into the garage. Wanted to do a big single, but I had other projects going on at the time...but they definitely do scream with a big turbo! Get one!!!I like rwd Japanese sports cars, like 240sx's, Supras, 300zx's, Datsun Z series, etc but I really don't like any of the FWD stuff like Hondas (S2000 and NSX are rwd so I like those). Actually, I was big into the Japanese sports car scene several years ago, though I never seemed to be able to finish a car project. For awhile there, I was trying to build an Rb26 Datsun 240z. Heck, I still have a damaged Rb26 laying around in the garage to prove it. lol The thing I want most right now is a big single turbo Supra, preferrably with like a Garrett GT4088R or a Precision Turbo T71GTQ so I could make a comfortable 650-700whp. After riding in a couple big single turbo Supras several years ago, nothing will ever be the same, and I have now become addicted to the big single turbo boost!
Wayne, that's a nice looking S14. Green isn't really my color, though the car looks great and well put together. With all of the drift craze, it's rare to see S13's or S14's anymore that haven't had all their bumpers knocked off at some point and every corner of the car dinged up from slamming into K-rails. lol
LoL...had a guy in a Dodge Ram try to smoke me out on I45 once...called the police on him...I felt my life was in danger.I like to pull up next to them. My tail pipe is about drivers window high. It only takes about 2 seconds to start the black smoke stream and about 1.2 seconds to fill them up.
I have known Al for a long time...he started a car team when we started 16NiSS. We had the same circle of friends back then! I keep trying to get away from S14's and I keep getting sucked back in...lol.Had SR powered 240s. Got rid of them both, now I have an E36 M3.
16Niss ... I'm assuming you know Al with the S14.
I was playing with my 95 Miata (recently sold it). I didn't go after the engine, but put some fun stuff from Flyin' Miatas in there: 8.5lb flywheel and ACT clutch, stainless brake hoses, AGX shocks. Did a nice negative camber/no toe alignment on it and put some Azenis RT615 tires on. It stuck so well it was actually frightening to look for the limits of grip on curves.nice...what kind of car?
The downside to slotted rotors is that they cheese-grate the pads pretty badly. This also tosses a bunch of pad material all over your wheels.I can't say enough about slotted rotors for Miata owners in the rain. My car's brakes would load up with water on the freeway and not want to stop right away until I put those on.
