Haha not with my dad, he was flooring it almost everywhere we went the first few nights we had my 86. It was pretty new to him, only other "fast" car he had was a 240z. he commented how most cars he had driven, the revs would slow down around 5000 rpms. Mine however is the opposite; the engine accelerates faster passed 4400 rpms when the tvis opens up (new experience for him) plus it was handling pretty good even on the shit tires it had which we were enjoying for awhile. oh well, too many stories...

basicly my dad likes to go fast. hates most cars unless they have a clutch (vans/suvs exluded of course)

man... took me a while to find the hood release since it wasn't in the place where the diagrams say (for future reference its on the driver's side about foot level on the wall on the left...) and I realized after I opened the fuse case that the fuse i needed for the window winder was a thirty amp and not a 7.5 like the previous owner said, so i gotta go shopping... and I was figuring out the controls and raised the headlights... the dumb headlight switch popped out of place so I had to remove the panel it was in and replace it in its slot, then i tried to lower the headlights and they didn't lower... so I don't know if I got the right switch or not, or what it is. Gonna have to call the previous owner. At this point I noticed that the shroud and two screws were missing from the right headlight... just a little more work. Not to mention that my shift boot is f00k'd. its a nonstandard version that is integrated into the knob, and its coming un-stitched there and the base where it snaps into the center console is out of shape. of course after I fix all that i gotta put in a CD player and some better speakers. Which means I have to learn how to do the wiring because I don't wanna take it to a shop. Oh well, I don't grudge the work. Just glad to have a car to work on! But I'm taking it out tonight at midnight (no insurance yet, don't call the fuzz) to work on my shifting in and out of 1st gear. Good times, good times.

haha good luck on fixing up the car man. I highly suggest you do learn proper shifting before you attempt anything at all.

Keep practicing until you can slow-shift smoothly (slow work on the clutch)

Then step up from there and fast-shift smoothly (fast clutch work)

Little addition to that: Anytime you launch, ride your clutch a bit, so you dont spin as much.

Yeah... I can shift fine 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5-4, 4-3, its just N-1, 1-2, and 3-2 that get me.
thanks for the tips, guys. Really my problem is that i don't have down the ratio of gas to clutch to use going into first and second.
I'm not even considering pushing it until I have a solid feel for it.
This isn't my particular car, but its same make, year, model, color.

I'm still researching it, so I'm not entirely sure which engine I have, the 2.5L 8v SOHC or the 2.7L 16v SOHC. Doesn't really matter, they make the same numbers. (~160 bhp, ~160 lb/ft)

IF they make the same power the only difference then would be the weight.

As for the supra, VERY nice. If you can though care to follow an old IDW custom? Take a picture of your car with bread, and milk on the car.. and if you can a sign

THis is my car for example

Its ok ive done this before where people doubt that I have the car and need proof by me putting something in the picture that they ask for. Well I just went to the fridge to get the milk and to my embarrasment I am out of milk as well as bread!!!! So I hope this will do, Its a small bottle of stawberry milk, a jar of mayonaise and a bottle of mustard. blink.gif And yes those are Cobra rims on there, they came with the car and I thought they looked good so I didnt take them off

Where do you live, if you dont mind me asking. Your yard is beautiful. Maybe I'm just jealous, growing up in Phoenix, where we have cactuses and palm-trees, and thats all. Lots of greenery up in your stuff =)

I agree, beautiful grass, lol. The rear end of your Supra looks so mean. I love it. The Cobra steel looks like they were made for the Supra. Great choice by the previous owner.

haha dont worry about the doubt thing, its more of a IDW custom (due to some idiot who claimed he had a skyline) then anything. check out the gallery op top and youll know what i mean wink2.gif but thanks for the pictue either way laugh.gif kinda funny.

but that its a nice set of wheels you have there. and mods worth noting?

besides the rims its totally stock, I havent done anything to it yet because I dont have much money left after buying it. I plan to take off the wood inserts around the guages, radio and AC controls, put boost guages on the A-pillar and im going with either red leather inserts or red stitching on the tubes in the seats. my dad works with leather so he can get me a deal on the seats.

Some very nice cars you guys have!

As for me, I have a 2001 Cavalier. Ultra Silver Metallic, 2200/5 speed, base model, but it does have side mouldings, rear spoiler, cd player, trunk release, gauge package, rear window defogger. smile.gif

If I can get get some cash flow, sometime soon, I'll be trying to get a 240SX. Hopefully, an S14. Definitely gonna be a 5 speed. I'll probably never own another auto., as my last two cars were autos and I got sick of it quick.

I'm not wanting a 240SX because of the "fad," either. I just want one because I really like them, and I want a RWD car. Initial D didn't get me wanting one, either. I have been wanting one for a while now. My friend's uncle got a '91 S13 a few weeks ago. Sadly, it's an auto., but it's still a fun car to ride in, so I can only imagine what it'd be like to drive one with a 5 speed. I've just heard so much about them being extremely well-balanced, and the steering is barely power assisted at all. That's one problem I have with my Cavalier. It's got wayyy too much power assist on the steering.

Anyway, here's a pic.

first car was a 1988 baby blue jetta coupe. got it when i turned 16, and loved the shit out of it.

in feb of 2001, my parents bought me an eclipse, 1998 GS-T. i was so f**king psyched and i loved it. the only thing was it was automatic. after about two years went by i was just so fed up with that, so i saved up my own money and bought myself and old 5-speed model talon TSi awd. i seriously loved the SHIT out of that car. i had it for just under a year and drove it every day. i didnt have much on it for mods, just an intake, exhaust, boost controller @ 13psi and boost gauge. damn that thing was so quick and SUCH a pleasure to drive. about a month ago though, the engine finally blew and it was no longer drivable. sad sad day indeed. its still sitting in my garage waiting for me to decide what to do with it. i stripped most of the parts out of it that i could sell, and i'll prolly just dump it at a junkyard. anyway, now i am left with the eclipse. its a nice car, and im happy i didnt have to struggle to pay for it, but i simply cant stand it being automatic. im already saving money, and by the time im out of college in a couple years, i should be able to at least lease a ~30k car, or buy a used sports car. if i were to buy one now, i'd have a hard time deciding between an rx8, s2000, 350z, evo8 or sti. but since i dont have anywhere near the money for any of those, i dont have to worry about it for some time. anyway, heres some pics:
