Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Wasn't given much choice. :(  Got hit on the driver's door by a person who failed to yield.  I replaced it with the white RS, but I'm missing my gray RS now, even though the white looks damn good.  At the time, I could have had an exact match to the old car.  But it just felt wrong because of the accident.  A reminder I didn't want. But now I miss the gray.

 

28k in damage, car valued at 32k at time of accident.  Equals no more Focus RS. I walked away with nothing more than a contact burn on my knee as it hit the dash and slid.

 

Thankfully due to a good down payment I walked away with 12k in cash.  So I was able to make good on any new car I wanted.  I considered plopping 12k down on a used Fiesta ST and having no car payment.  Probably the smart decision.  But the AWD system in the RS, sheer performance, and the accessibility of that performance is like a drug.

 

Every time you see someone say the RS is like a Mini-GTR, its absolutely true.  It is insane just hard you can throw the car into any corner, or how ham-fisted you can be with it.

 

The TransAm on the other is a bit vague yet incredibly fun because its so raw.  Its old school and analogue in everything it does.  No nannies of any kind. Its chunky and lazy down low, but when it comes on cam its just so in your face loud. 

 

you could've gone GTI or even golf R, but i guess you wanted to stay within the family?

So is the Supra like a more expensive 86/BRZ in terms of the approach Toyota took with it?

I know @bcredeur97 already scolded me for the floor mats :D salt does that to you up here. 

 

Install wasnt terribly bad,worst far was figuring out how to remove the glove box (something I wish I had thought of when installing the dash cam because it makes getting at the fuse box easier) and then figuring out where good places to run rigid LED tubes through (they looked more like old style cathode tubes but had rigid PCB led systems in them, so i needed a fairly wide chamber for a pass through.) All the wires are nicely tucked under panels save for where they absolutely need to be like coming out from the control module. 

 

Also got around to finally installing the other dashcam in my sisters car (no pics sorry). At first she wasnt super looking forward to it, but as time had gone on she's seen the value it could have in a crash for proving fault, so she was very happy when it was finally installed.

Car looks super cool. Especially the stuff Toyota left with the aftermarket in mind. But that engine is going to cause nothing but issues for Toyota techs when there are issues.

Yep. Hopefully it’s as reliable as Toyota wants us to believe

TRD is technically a "Tuning company"

 

You think they're going to use those extra provisions to make a special TRD version with all the bracing and coolers and vents functional?

My biggest worries with the car are, that you're expecting Toyota techs who typically work on very simple cars, on something that complicated

And just the name Supra honestly. If they would have gone with the FT1 concept stylistically, it would have been great. But it looks like the front end they went with is just missing something, and doesn't look like a "Supra"

 

If they would have gone with the Celica name, and brought that back, most people complaining about the BMW bits wouldn't have a reason to complain. 

 

If they would have gone that route they could have still made that possible TRD version, and made the Supra a trim again, like it was originally.

But I don't see an issue with them partnering with BMW, BMW IMO just makes better parts than Toyota does in the places they used BMW parts (AKA the powertrain, and just about the entire interior)

i actually like modern toyota interiors tho. i think they could design a nice interior for the supra. though i got nothing to complain about with the bmw interior, other than maybe the idrive stuff.

is TRD dead now that Gazoo Racing is a thing? Btw the Supra has a GR badge


Celica was a much cheaper much lower end car... 

Here's the thing... 90's early 00's... I think they are over. We want the manufacturers to make a car from that era. That's what we really want. But... they just can't. You have to realize... they literally cannot. Not with all the crap we have today. 

With that mindset it does make it easier to be a little less critical of the new supra. It seems like they did what they /could/ do. It is expensive tho... that's my only problem with it

I’m actually 100% with @RevoltTrain here. All the cool tuning provisions are epic. If they had called the car something else, and then made a trim called ‘supra’ i thibk people would have recieved it better. Car is cool as hell though.

Oh I know it's front-wheel drive. That's about half of why I want it.

Also, have heard that the Grand Prix GXP does go through transmissions. My selection of cars is always bouncing around and while I'd like to own one, I'm leaning towards a 90s compact wagon, hatchback or SUV.
