Re: CloudStrife's AE88

I don't think I mentioned it, but I have a DC2 GSR. It's really hard to convince myself how great the AE86 is, when it's better handling, better engine, better comfort, and 10x easier to find parts for. Plus, I'm supposed to move to WA here very shortly.. Those things might be true with the GSR ......

Re: "Kentucky AE86: A Levin Story"

No major update really. I noticed after replacing the waterpump it was leaking just a little bit where the o-ring meets the head. Nothing anything major, but enough to be annoying. I had a hard time getting the waterpump mounted so I wouldn't be surprised if I messed up that o-ring a bit. Rather tha...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Dude those calipers look sick. Any thought on wheel choice later on down the road? Or are you going to stick with the Konig Rewinds?

I feel like you'd gotta get some wheels that are a little more open to show that stuff off. TE37s would look good ;)

By the way, did you find out if there was a common ground between the three readouts? Thats another reason why I decided to take the cluster apart. Out of that list you posted there's only 4 ground wires; 16, 26, 19, and 3. Everything else works fine so I was hoping I could at least trace which one...
