What do you guys think? Its not going to be a full on competition car just something I can have a bit of fun with and enjoy!

It needs a clean but I had just pulled it out of the workshop for some pictures.

Looks like you're on the right track.








Yes, that was intentional. laugh.gif Might consider a carbon and Lexan rear lift at some point if you want to drop more weight.

Well I successfully completed a track day at the local race circuit with no issues at all, It kept going and going all day.

It did however show up some points that need sorting, although the tyres are actually pretty dam good in the dry the handling wasn't great, just being lowered on eibach springs isn't going to cut it.

So I'll be looking in to some different suspension and anti roll bars etc.

Could anyone recommend a setup they have on there car? The problem I find with these Celicas parts are so dam expensive! A full set of coilovers are like 700+ whilst I don't mind spending the money to get results it's not a full on race car so don't want to be sinking loads and loads of money into it.

Any suggestions on suspension setups??

Off the top of my head he's probably done more with suspension and the like than anyone else, should be a good read for you.
