    The car is goddamn awesome.

    Clutch is working great. Second gear launches all day no slip. Big beefcake burnouts.

    Brakes work fine. Its a lot different feel without power assist, just something to get used to.

    Steering kind of sucks. The turning radius with manual box knuckles and a power rack is disgusting huge.

    LSD is working. Works great on burnout launches. Not so great on roll on burnouts on dry pavement. Picks a tire and murders it. At least that's what it's feeling like.

    Ride quality is pretty good. Everytihgn seems well controlled. I never told anyone because it was kind of embarassing, but i am running cut AE86 front in the rear with camaro KYB gas-a-justs. I like the rate. Getting some rubbing on the RR on dips in the road, but that can be adjusted out with the panhard. I'm about 5mm further out on that side. Thanks to Dug for lending me his fender roller though, I am not killing the sidewalls completely.

    It won't idle warm. This is the only real problem. It will just if you let the throttle out veeeeery slowly. Cold or warm. The ISCV was working when I first fired this engine up. Nothing has changed that should have affected it.... Maybe running open Maf flows more air than it expects and it does not compensate? Doubt it. Maybe ISCV needs a rebuild. I definately need to go through and check all my grounds thoroughly.

    Sorry I'll post a vid soon. I forgot my phone today when i went out ****ing around. I could post a boring one that i have already i guess.

    Crack the throttle plate a bit. Screw is way underneeth and balls to get to though. Block the whole iacv with a plate and crack it a bit more if you want. Idle is hardly affected.
    If you've got an old version of the iacv you can take it appart and clean it. Can be bench tested as well, should hear it clicking. 90% of them are dead though.

    1uz is awesome. I know.

    Behold ye, my sweet turning radius. Bad lighting for the burnout vid. Can't see the rubber.

    Needs chassis reinforcement. Torques a lot under accel.

    My mom says it drives a lot smoother than she expected. My mom knows these things. Happy Mothers Day!

    Plan on drifting this box as soon as possible. going to Montreal for the F1 race so it looks like i'll miss the June 5th Practice at western. That puts me SOL until July 19th.

    Gives me some time to add angle.

    Here is a picture of my celica when i took it out of storage. This car is highly neglected.

    This post is stupid and just because i am bored in camp.
