    2021 GT86 and BRZ

    I'd disagree with flappy paddles ruining the fun. Its only the uk that's obsessed with a manual box,most that waffle on about them have never owned a fast car with a decent d/c box,its a comment you always read on a gt86 or mx5 forum. Its not just about 0 to 60 times but the whole experience, a good dual clutch box enhances the drive. Will the supra ever get a manual option? Unlikely I'd say

    Pictures really don't do it justice, looked absolutely stunning at Fuel yesterday - wow! 😀

    The stuff of dreams that. Fantastic work mate. Those deep wheels with the colour scheme 👌 Love to see this in person.

    No worries, I heard from Rob that you couldn't make it Yeah i met him at JAE last year (when you saw me in that convoy lol!) his car is super clean inside and out and rightfully won "best toyota" that year. Was good to get the two of them together.

    Looks great Sam. Sorry I couldn’t make it to see it in person. Saw some nice pics of your car with the old 86

    New member - planning mods and trying TSS

    Finally got round to putting the Alcantara steering wheel trim from East Detailing on myself. I’m very happy with the end result. Not as professional as having someone proper do it, there’s a bit round the back that didn’t quite sit right but it’s not noticeable. Took me a couple of hours to do after watching their tutorial video. I decided to take the front of the steering wheel off to get a better result rather than use the tool they use in the videos to stuff the material into the gaps without taking it off. Much much better that way. There are lots of videos of how to remove the steering wheel but I only had to remove the airbag and plastic bits on the front, not the whole steering wheel. Anyway, here’s the end result. Let me know what you think! Just rear lights and wheels left to receive now, and then BBK and suspension will go on and will then make that trip to TD for the tune.

    👌👌👌 Hey @Lauren as you helped me find out my 86 is seriously basic, I've decided to name it the Mk 1. Sounds collectable that way and helps deflect from the many potential faults and non-fitting mods I may encounter. 😎

    A couple of people have asked me about fitment. Going from 225/45 on 17" to 235/40 on 18", both ET35, has increased overall diameter from 634mm to 645mm. The tyre fills the wheel well by 5mm more. Testing it against GPS yesterday shows that my speedo is now almost spot-on, over-reading by 1mph at 70. Gearing is very slightly longer, but it felt just the same as before. Poke is 5mm more and so is inner distance to suspension, so it's safe. Although the fronts look to be barely clearing the arches, there is no scrub on full lock. Scrub radius remains the same, so the alignment that Abbey Motorsport did for me remains good.

    Well it was great to be back at Fuel, and to see Sam's car in the flesh, and the Trueno too. Glad they were parked together!I am sure Sam will have plenty of photos of the event. Shame the sun was not out cos that wrap will pop in the sunshine!! Well done Sam!
  21. Thanks a lot for looking Greg. Yeah I've seen the website. Probably cheaper to just get after market set than to ship it from Australia. Thanks anyway.
  22. Hi again, I was a bit too optimistic about that clips. I have a oem set of indicators, that came off my BRZ, but the previous owner had them fitted with silicone glue so the A Clip is missing. So apologies - but I won't be able to help you. But I found that : https://led86.com.au/product/replacement-side-indicator-clips Don't know if its too much or not, but they sell them abroad.
  23. Thanks a lot Greg. Awaiting your reply.
  24. Hi, I may have one or two. I will check it tonight, will let you know. Greg.
