    Someone is causing a ruckus

    Well I always like finding supra videos, but this is one of those situations where it wasn't positive. The twitter video clearly shows a white mkIII supra acting foolishly. This is definitely not contributing positively to the tuner car image...

    TEIND EDFC Install

    Hi All, Does anyone have experience with and pictures of the final install of the TEIN EDFC? I currently have HSD MonoPro, which I have to adjust manually. This isn't bad, but the idea of changing it on the fly from within the cab is appealing. Because I do little tracking, the idea of twin...
