Re: Is there any saving this Trueno :(

Full coverage is fine for stock and lightly tinkered with assuming you bought the car at the right price, but agreed value on anything beyond what is covered otherwise. I think I'm at something like $34/month for full coverage with no deductible and free glass. Is "Agreed Value" Where you...

Re: Techo toy tuning short throw

Thanks for all the reply's. So the Short throw can cause issues with syncro's, and you have to shift slower than you would with a factory shifter? I am assuming the issue with the syncro's is caused by grinding gears? Yes, when you try to shift faster (even if you hit it perfectly) our old style sy...

Re: Techo toy tuning short throw

This is a highly debatable subject but myself, and many Japanese AE86 drivers I know are strongly against short throw shifters and the T50 mission. The STS(short throw shifter) increases the amount of leverage and quickens the shift(internally) just as much as it does externally, to the point that t...

Re: NEW: Rota Kyusha 15x9

FROM THE VIDEO: Those are XXR's which are JUNK. Rota's are a much better quality wheel. ROTA used to be an OEM manufacturer for Subaru and a few other car companies. Also, you could look at that two ways. If the wheel didnt take the damage, the force would have transfered into the suspension arms, a...

Re: Shipping Cars into the States

If its older than 25 years its pretty simple. Im military so its easier for me, but you would probably have to pay taxes on it.

When it comes time to register it, it all depends on the state you live in. Some easy (south carolina), some extremely difficult (California).

Re: WTB: Stock shifter asembly

Sorry i just registered here so i cant PM yet. I did some research and i guess the JDM shifter is angled to the right so I need a JDM one. The TRD is heavy leaning to the right so if your LHD, you wouldnt want it.
