Theyre begging for a red vinyl over them to give it a jeweled look.


Also, The car should be dropped no lower than the lower control arm level and the rear driveshaft level. (ideally the rear lower arms are level at that point too)

Anything past that leads to suspension geometry changes through out the then limited range of travel, with out massive reengineering that is...something most "dump it" dip shits will never do.

The height drastically changed once I upgraded the suspension to a full custom set up. Still gotta tune it in.

I used the mid grade exhaust in game and it kept the OEM Exhaust Graphic.
I feel like a goddamned idiot. Didn't realize they were game pics.

And I'm not MaD tYtE JDM anymore... but does Modellista in Japan translate to PepBoys over here, because have to say I've seen most of those mods in the crown-shaped air cleaner aisle of the automotive ghetto.

I don't know who/what Modellista is, but they can certainly fuck right off.

I've never bothered plotting the roll centers on this car. Seems like a lot of crap to go through to justify my own curiosity about a non-competition car. The next time the thing's back on the ground, I'll check for level. The kid I bought it from never said he autocrossed it, but the modifications don't make much sense unless he did.

I'll agree that the chrome body side molding is the most ridiculous and retarded accessory possible for the new 86. As to what Modellista is, let me quote passages from my 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon coverage for Kaizen Factor (see Toyota at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon, Part 1 | Kaizen Factor and Toyota at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon, Part 2 | Kaizen Factor ):

Quote:
Founded in 1997, Modellista is an in-house Toyota arm whose primary (but by no means sole) focus is on body kits and custom grilles and cosmetics available as aftermarket accessories and the occasional Japanese Domestic Market limited-edition model. Yet, their name has also been applied to such delectable JDM forbidden fruit as the Toyota Mark X +M Super Charger, powered, as the name implies, by a supercharged 350+ hp version of the 3.5-liter 2GR-FSE V6.

(The 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon saw) the launch of Toyota’s new G Sports (or, more succinctly) G’s line. Wikipedia informs us that “G Sports is a range of enhancements to some cars manufactured by Toyota. The enhancements include body kits, interiors, wheels, suspension and drive-line components”. Toyota’s official press release goes into more detail, but leaves unanswered the question of how G Sports and the older Modellista and TRD (Toyota Racing Development) groups compliment or overlap with each other. A number of pundits...grappled with that question and reach a consensus of sorts that Modellista would focus more on cosmetics and body kits, TRD on all-out performance mods and G’s would focus more on suspension and interior upgrades. Yet, as it currently stands, there is much overlap between them, especially between Modellista and G’s. Call their differentiation or “nicheification”, then, a work in progress.

I've been lurking around and I am pretty sold on this car. Motoiq did an in depth look at the suspension and diff etc etc. I don't see anything I don't like. I'll wait and see final specs of course but I haven't had a hardon for a car since I saw my first orange altezza. I might have to sell my touch though cuz the wife don't want 5 cars

The Genesis and Z have the same problem when trying to be sports cars - they're both rolling on Sedan chassis.

Of course, I think the Mustang is its own chassis. No excuse there other than they want to be able to stuff 5.0+ liter engines under the hood with room for a supercharger.
