Please do not reply or quote. Wink

-- Need to know --
Q. What does Trueno (and Levin) mean?
A. Trueno and Levin cars are like brother and sister. The same goes for their meaning: Levin means lightning (old English) and Trueno means thunder (Spanish). Why Toyota chose the names in different languages is unknown.

Q. Tureno or Trueno?
A. Trueno! Tureno is some silly made up name by the makers of Initial D because Toyota was hesitating about giving permission to use the name Trueno in the Initial D series, so they didn't have permission yet when the series got aired. After a few episodes the name changed to Trueno and on the official DVD sets the footage of Tureno was replaced with Trueno. Please don't use the term Tureno: people might laugh and make fun about your posts.

Q. What is the difference between the Levin and the Trueno?
A. The difference lies in the body of the car: the Trueno features popup-lights and the levin features normal fixed lights. This results in a different front section and bumpers. There are more smaller differences like for example the rear lights, but they are not that easy to spot as the front section. All parts are exchangable since the chassis is the same, however the popup-lights require additional electrical devices and wiring.

Q. I heard something about Zenki and Kouki? What models and types exist then?
A. See also this topic:
or this FAQ:

I read a lot about panda, what is it?
A. During the eighties two-tone coloring of cars was a major hype. Toyota offered the AE86 also in two-tone colors. Due to the drawing of the paint in combination with the popular white-black two tone people started naming it panda since it kind of looked like a panda. Available combinations are: white/black, silver/black, red/black, beige/brown, light blue/blue, light blue/dark blue, light green/green, silver/grey, silver/medium grey.
See also the colorcode table.

Q. Can you help me find an AE86?
A. We can help you find one. Register on the forum and post your wishes there.

Q. I want a panda Trueno. Have one for sale?
A. No, we don't have a panda Trueno for sale and they are really hard to get by. The Trueno was sold in Japan, US and some parts of Asia so the numbers of them are really low in the EU. Ofcourse some have been imported in the past from Japan or the US, but you can probably count them on two hands. Importing is an option, but do take in account you're probably going to pay a lot for shipping and import taxes. Importing a Trueno from Japan costs about 5000/6000 euros, and add another 1000/2000 for a white panda. Tongue

Q. What AE86 would suit me best?
A. We are not mindreaders, and besides that: there are far too many different options to go for. It would help if you asked yourself some questions first: what purpose will the car serve? Do you want a tuned car or bone stock? Do you want a project car or one which looks like it just rolled out of the factory?

Q. Can sell me an AE86 or parts?
A. No, unfortunately we are not selling them ourselves and we do not have milions of cars in stock. On the forum, when registered, you can find cars and parts for sale in the Sale-section

Q. Do you have a repair manual for the car?
A. We have two repair manuals (Body and 4AGE) for download on the site:

Q. When I signed up I read something about a map. What about it?
A. That's true. We have a map and it is still in beta phase. A new map is written but not 100% working, so you'll have to stick with the old one:
