I wanted to ask you guys if there are any parts you wish someone made for this car that arent out there or havent been made yet. Or somthing you'd like the supra to have that it doesnt come with. I am in an engineering class and I need to design somthing that hasn't been made yet. I thought I'd base it on the supra.

All ideas are welcome, thanks.

But seriously like them said.... a good set of piston return springs that wont sag would be so nice.

an X-brace that ties up the tunnel on the underside of the car. that would really stiffen up the chassis.

all kidding aside, the latches would be a pretty good engineering project. You'd have to calculate out the stress of the lever, a latch mechanism, the force applied to hold the top on, the force needed to open the latch ect. people don't realize how much goes into something like that when designed well, especially if you want to make it nice a light and quick and easy to use.

If you want something more simple, a AFPR that sits in the stock rail would be kinda cool. I just designed a replacement alternator bracket for FF manifolds, that was kind of easy. There’s the talked of smaller oil pump drive cog. don’t think anyone actually drew that one up. That should be enough ideas to get your gears turning.

Solid tranny mount.

Replacement under engine shield. Something made with a tougher material than the moistened tar paper that Toyota decided to use for the original.

New rear subframe anyone? I know the big power boys are cracking these worse than CPR on a 90 year old.
