I mean that's not unprecedented. Remember Casey Stoner on the 800cc Duc? Dominant, and mostly on straight line speed.

Is that photo before or after the springs? Also I'm in love with that color.

I'd skip the intake, FWIW. Not much to be had over just doing a tube and a drop in for far less cash.

I doubt they'd lower the recommended octane, but that doesn't mean the car won't run sorta okay on lower grade fuel. The ECU is smart enough to pull enough timing to make it work.

Honestly the best thing you can do to attract a girl is to already have one. Then they practically fall out of trees around you.

While I'm saving up for the dozen or so mods I have planned, I'm tinkering with making the car a smidge quieter/more refined. Along those lines, I'm doing some mild sound suppression. Two questions:...

Yeah the ride height here is not the problem, the differing tire diameter is. This platform likes a square setup. Also how much of a stretch is a 215 tire on a 9.5in rim?

That's an interesting idea, but I sorta hope they don't. The Subaru motor was actually one of the selling points in the 86 for me. Toyota's powerplants are (largely) so soulless.
