I was absolutely blown away by the way this car rides. I WILL be dumping my poly bushings in favor of SADFab's bronze insert/delrin setup. Absolutely phenomenal.

My favorite thing to do is hit the reflectors in the road. And just not even feel them. Only hear that they are there.

Kudos emilio700 great suspension.

It was just a shitty car. It leaked, burned oil, was slow, P/S died. Suspension was ****. I think I wanted it cuz i missed the miata. Now that the miata is driving again I don't miss it at all. Miata is significantly faster.

Somewhere in the mid 1980's Toyota just lost the spark.

I had a 1981 Celica ST. R44 carbureted engine, 5 speed. Full gauges, not much else. Vinyl seats, no A/C. But I could drive that car at 90% all the time, and it just took it. Never did more than basic maintenance on it, and the only thing that ever went in 85k was a slave cylinder. Built like a truck (same drivetrain as the Tacoma), and 100% predictable handling. I loved that little tank, and swore if I could ever get another, I would in a heartbeat. Then they went fail wheel drive and killed it.

Fast forward to a few years back when the FR-S comes out. That's the one, I thought. Then I drove one, and was hugely disappointed. The thing is a boy racer appliance car. Nothing special about it. Like a Corolla or Camry in different sheet metal. No character. Boring in every way. Oh well, I guess it sells cars to the masses.

I drove the jetta to pick up a motorcycle for a friend. Cruise control at 80 and just relax. Indicated less than a quarter tank for the 220 mile trip.

I don't think there's anything wrong with SW20s in general, it's just that they're 25 year old cars at this point and a lot of them are beat to ****.

It was a cool car. And i'm sure nice ones would be a different story. This wasn't that.

And now I have it back.

Anyone want a 193k mile SW20 eloquently described above by Aidan?

Extended lower ball joints get the full clubroadster approval.

-4.7* of camber and it wasn't even maxed out.



I got a pretty nasty misfire today, when in boost. Pulled the plugs and some dumbass had gapped them to .040. Regapped to about .020 and as of now the misfire is gone. Need to rev it out all the way to be sure.

Correction: some dumbass didn't gap them, and they were at .040.

All plugs gapped to .020". Car pulls great. Suspension is great. Clutch is great. I love this car.
