I made a couple suspension changes and decided to go test it out since today was pretty nice. That's a rarity around here these days...

I also wanted to show off the types of back roads that are at my disposal. ;)

I apologize in advance for the color and contrast of this video. I'm trying out a new video editor.

It's a tad lengthy and boring since I couldn't really push it due to rubbing; but, any day in a Supra on open roads is a good day!

Enjoy...

Is it possible to get a plug in microphone for your camera and place it somewhere inside the car? Video is great but the static of the wind, ugh. lol

Yes, Andy. It took me a bit to figure out what that orange glowing orb in the sky was... :)

It's a little bouncy up front. I'll raise it up a bit more and adjust the dampening rate again and see where that gets me. Know that those roads are NOT smooth in any way. They are NON-maintained county roads.

Indigo: That's the nature of the beast with the GoPro. There is no external mic jack. I'd sure like to modify one; but, don't want mine to be the guinea pig. ;)

He stopped being a vendor because he couldn't get online, then closed the shop and sold a lot of the parts. He is going back home to live. I have his number and spoke to him a few months back on what happened.

Yep very small lol so how did she handle in the recent snow storm
Well, I'm pretty sure that as awesome as they are, they're weren't built with snow in mind. :)

She pretty much stays nestled in the garage until the roads are free of gel, salt, and rocks.

How did he mess up people's cars? Unless you are saying he had a shop and worked on a car and messed it up. Then again, we have owners who don't understand a 20+ year old car will have another issues right as you fix one issue.
he screwed over a couple of people 1 of being a close friend and a couple other guys that don't have supras whos cars he was working on. Its on sf the guy is a real jackass thats all i got to say..

now for his coils my buddy has them and they seem fine.

i dont want to hijack thread

Never seen anything like that on SupraForums, just more good reviews than anything though.

Yea over here in western washington we got hammered. There is a big open parking lot where there was a bunch of 240 guys over there doing donuts and snow drifting. It looked like a lot of fun lol but ya with how low you are im sure that it would act more like a snow plow lol

everyone talks shit in the scene, and even more when someone gets out of the scene. Which is why I got out of the scene- let the ignorance flow

BTW- keep an eye out for next months Modified Mag ;)

Thanks for stopping in Ace. I don't have a lot of miles on them yet; but, so far...I'm digging the coilovers. And you were right...I didn't need the pillow ball mounts. I'm glad you talked me out of them. For my application, I don't want the ride to be any stiffer.

Got a link to the Mag you're referring to?

Can any of you guys tell me how I would adjust the dampening on these coilovers? There is a threaded insert on the top of each coil, but I think that I remove that and then the dampening is adjusted by putting a screwdriver into the hole and rotating, listening/feeling for clicks? Also, if I aim to make the ride softer, does that increase the overall travel or just the dampening time? (would I have to increase ride height if I make the ride softer?)
