    RockNRolla

    As some may know I recently sold my SX anyway I couldn't bare to drive a standard shity car so i went out and bought an AE86 . Now ive drove quite a few as ive been searching for the one that was right for me since i posted this thread
    http://www.sxoc.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=468071
    I found this one on DW a while back made an offer and it was to my surprise accepted






    spec list is something like this

    - 1986 Ae86 Levin coupe
    - 107,000km (around 65,000 miles)
    - 6 months tax
    - 7 months mot
    - 1.6 16v 4age lump
    - HKS cams
    - Mikuni 48mm carbs
    - TRD fuel pump and FPR
    - Full exhaust system
    - Jasma manifold
    - HKS oil cooler
    - HKS oil filter relocation kit
    - TRD 2-way diff
    - TRD clutch
    - TRD Short shift kit
    - TRD front coilovers
    - KYB rear shocks and TRD springs
    - Cusco adjustable arms
    - Cusco upper and lower braces
    - Nearly all the other suspension bits uprated aswell!
    - Full rollcage (dash dodger)
    - K Sport bucket seat
    - OMP wheel with snap-off boss
    - Stripped out rear
    - TRD oil and water temp gauges
    - Fly off handbrake button
    - Brembo pads and disks
    - 15x8 rota RB's with new 195/50 Toyo T1R's
    - J-blood front bumper , Free run sides and rear

    As Si said in the above thread don't discount the 4AGE engine wich i sort of already had but ive now fallen in love with it lol . The sound and the way this car delivers power all the way up to 9k is awesome and never fails to put a smile on my face.
    So plans for the future are to get it all serviced up to make sure its running as good as it can be, new wheels are on the cards as im not really a fan of the rotas and some coilovers, wich type I don't know but its out of DW CS2's , Blitz or AVO .

    Oh, Jev's old car - ex Touge Hero's one. Used to have fighting transformers on the side.

    Nice one

    Si: It sounds awesome on full chat! Even growling round town too...

    EDIT: used to look like this:

    Its actually a really nice engine but the ones ive tryed before this one just seemed a little restricted in comparison , this one just growls and howls all the way such a mad ass little motor ! Ill post a little vid in a bit when i have someone to hold the camera

    Wheels wise i was going to go with some minilites or similer for the time being but id really like to get some nice Miesters or Equip 03's on there once my overtime cash drops in the bank

    They had been growing on me for a while so i just bit the bullet and got one haha so happy i did now great little car

    Teggers yeah thats the one

    Know what you mean - I'd love something like this as a daily beater. Shame (for us) that they're a cult car now and the value is so high. I still keep my eye out for a cheap one though...

    This one wasn't to pricey really got a decent deal on it in the end they are getting cheaper but the cheaper ones are usually rust riddled and need a lot of work doing

    Its only cool to people who like JDM cars every one else thinks like my girlfriend in that its just a 25 year old noisy shit heap

    yeah they are great fun little cars , the sx was a lot faster than this but the 86 handles so nice I havn't really missed the speed to be honest. I also love the retroness of it all haha even down to the little details in the interior like the aircon switch's haha .

    Thats the thing though. Its not as fast but it feels like your constantly at the limit. I've been in my mates and it felt like we were flying down the nice back road. A few months later I was trailing him in my sx and felt it was taking no effort. They are just so much fun. Oh and they sound the tits too. Wish my sr sounded that nice lol
    Does yours have the warning ringer and light on the dash saying "speed"?

    It's like the go kart effect because its so much smaller than the sx and the engine is so rev happy it feels and sounds like I'm doing 150 mph down a back road when I'm really only doing 60 haha keeps me smiling
    I've not seen the light or heard the buzzer but then my car has had a lot of stuff stripped out of it

    Thanks and yes it is a lot of fun

    Fitment wise I don't want to go silly wide on the wheels as that would ruin part of what makes these cars so great so from my measurements 15x8 et 0 on the front and 15x8.5 et -10 on the rear would be perfect although I might have to adjust that a bit but if I get wheels some where around those sizes i will be happy
