Sorry I havenít been keeping up, is it going into the 86? Thatís pretty rad either way, really underrated engine unless you pay attention to what Lotus does with it lol.

Unrelated to the 86. They are great powerplants. Modular design is wonderful and I am a die-hard fan of hydraulic lash adjustment.

It's my daughter's ES350. Hubby drove it for ten miles without an accessory belt.

More than you can imagine! Well, maybe not, given that you're on this forum.

Drove the same route last summer in my now-sold bmw e82. Had far more fun yesterday.

did quite a bit, got fresh tires, got a very good deal on bilsteins for the car, figured since i'm in the suspension might as well refresh most of the bushings, got a custom tune and re-installed my splitter, been a busy few days haha, finally got a beater for the winter so I don't have to feel bad about putting all the aero back on. Im tired of losing parts to the 401

Changed my rear brake pads. I had a set laying around since the last time I was going to replace them. But my lug studs stripped and after dealing with that I wasn't in the mood to do anything else.
But once you have the wheels off, it's the easiest job I've ever done. Just need to remove one bolt, swing the caliper out of the way, and replace the pads.
Nothing to it. And the brakes even still work!
