  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: So... which coilovers to get? (for a JZA80)

    Considerations: - I'd like to decrease weight if the cost/weight ratio is reasonable - Only high-quality parts desired - What are the pros and cons of pillowball mounts? - Which spring rates to purchase? I helped a friend install his HKS coilovers a couple weeks ago and they were the same...

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Blog/Picture Archives

    I recently noticed that Andi's Supra websites - and (chronicling his '02 and '03 One Lap of America efforts) - are now down unfortunately. I thought it would be cool to copy the contents of his OLA efforts into this thread before they are gone forever (I used the...

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Road racing the JZA80

  1. Answer is always Miata but what else?

    I want to get back into doing HPDEs again (used my stock G35 before) and was looking for cheap track car options (<$10k). I know the answer is always Miata, but are there others?

  4. High speed, high power, without LSD - consequences?

    This is more of a general question, but I'm experiencing an unsettling slow motion wiggle of the rear end (very slight) at top speed 140mph+. This vehicle doesn't have an LSD, but everything else suspension-wise is new (and alignment, etc). I haven't felt a non-LSD RWD vehicle in top speed...
