electric's double grey JDM Trueno (56k warning)
Hi guys I started a thread about my car that I purchased in general but I figured I would continue on with it here. Here is a link to my original thread: http://www.aeu86.org/viewtopic/just-got-...lly/t/5529

Well the car is complied and rego'd now. It seems weird that it is all finally done but there you go. Once I actually got the car it hardly took any time at all. As promised... Pics!

I discovered when taking the rear seat out that there was a massive brace through the chassis itself. This runs directly under where the rear seat sits on the floor of the car. I have found out since then (I had no idea myself) that it enables the rear to run equal length trailing arms? I think I have that right. Have a look and tell me what you think...

first shot of the trailing arms from underneath, if you look you can see that it goes through where the rear seat would be, straight through the chassis and into a custom bracket.

A zoomed in view, gives you a better idea of what I'm talking about.

Here is under the rear seat. Gives you an idea of what I mean when I say its in a custom brace.

Rear shock set up, tokhico(sp?) shocks

Front brake set up, braided lines and Mazda marked calipers (I'm assuming the RX7 brake conversion)

Front coil over assembly, unknown shocks and springs, do they look like anything to anybody?

Quick pic i took when i first got it, more new ones to come.

My first impressions of the car are great, it handles like a dream. It's such a cliche but it really does handle like a go-kart, the new tyres can't hurt that either, stability through corners is incredible. The main surprise is that the car is quicker than I had anticipated. I dont know what it is but the car pulls pretty well from about 3k right through the rev range, second gear pull is amazing. Because this is the only hachi I have driven properly I have no basis for comparison and I am unsure whether this is just a result of the light weight of the thing or some modification I am not aware of?

What do you guys think? does this sound about right, as in what a regular hachi should go like? any thoughts or opinions would be great.

Looks like tokico HTS on the rear there mate. With luck you got them on the front aswell. Adjustable from the top with a 3mm 6 sided wrench thingy whatever the english name isSmile

Looks like a great car!

You got yourself a very nice car there.. all the nice goodies where you would want to have them. Chances are the engine isnt exactly stock anymore either, judging by the rest of the modifications, this car was nicely put together.

FABRICA MI DIEM, PVNC!

Congrats mate, on such a rare find. You are one lucky git! This car must have gotten some serious love from it's precious owner. Be sure to keep her in one piece because a standard ae86 will feel like a boat after this one Big Grin

Yummie!
(do I need to say more? Tongue )

But doesn't the brace sit very uncomfortable for passengers? ( in other words: why keep the passenger seat in? >Smile )
