    This is my curse to bear. There is no stop.

    15psi + 280hp + 2200lbs = GOOD!

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    Its a nagisa auto bar. It looks pretty, but it is quite thin stainless (its a sheet, not solid like it looks) so I'm not sure how strong it will actually be? I'd recommend a traditional 3 point bar for rigidity.
    Got my tires mounted today...215/40-17 direzzas on the 17x9 fno1rcs. Just fits on the rear...can't wait to see the front.

    Summer is for driving cars and playing with girls. Winter is for building.

    I'll check the alt setup if I ever go to the garage.

    I think I've got it sorted...I just wanted to rib you a bit.

    I never have time to drive anymore, much less build. It sucks.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Its coming along slowly. Just too busy with a wedding filled summer...have one every second weekend...plus work is busier than all get-out. I have all the pieces ready, I just have to find time to finish the puzzle.

    Well, thanks to the help of many nice, smart people, I got it wired and fired. I'm frantically putting fluids in it so I may be able to take it out for a drive...but it lives!

    Thanks to everyone who helped. I've just finished putting in tranny fluid, then brakes/clutch are next. All I need is coolant to drive it around the block after that.

    Cool. Always room for more ae86ers around here.

    Brakes in, clutch in, sunroof in. Still lots of work to do. Try for drive around block this weekend maybe?

    Finally got her around the block. Clutch is useless. Brakes are mushy at best. Steering is average. Power is craaaazy. Looks like its going to plan. That should round out the year I think. Now just to get it ready for spring.

    Devin, is your car easy to drive and yet power-crazed?

    Lag and crazy grip make it a handful to drift. It's really hard to lift, brake and correct when I needed to. Drift engine needs low rpm torque, turbo engine does not do that, so I sold it.
    For grip and all out drift it was a blast.
