DMAX roof wing. And i lowered it just a tad..



It took me almost 2 months, but it was well worth it, since I got em for CHEEEEEEEEAP. Hooray for working at a Toyota Stealership!



Heres an update thats actually worth clicking my thread for haha
I finally gathered all my parts for my Manual Rack conversion.

TE72 Manual Rack, Ujoint, and Intermediate Shaft.
I hooked it up with some TechnoToyTuning Outer Tie Rods and Beefy Knuckles. I also bought a BattleVersion rack spacer, but I was antsy to put the rack in, I decided to throw it on later when I have time to pick it up from Alex.

Since the PS Pump, Idler, and AC compressor run on the same belt, everyone deletes the AC at the same time as PS. But **** that I love my AC, so i junkyard hopped around and found an MR2 AC bracket(MR2s never came PS) and it bolts right up to my block, which lets me run an MR2 AC belt, which enables me to keep my AC and delete PS.

Old Rack

Old Pump, Lines, Reservoir, Brackets

Fitting the Manual rack in

Right after setting it in

Megan Coils, DGARAGE RCAs, T3 Knuckles, T3 Tie Rods, SS Brake Lines
All i need are Tension Rods and a Sway bar and my front suspension would be complete.

Angle without centering the rack, or Doing my alignment

1/4 Turn before FULL LOCK. I cant go to full lock at the moment because my tires rub on the Frame Rails.


These are all set with the knuckles on the stock setting, no rack spacers, -1.5 Camber, 2.25 Caster, 0 Toe.

 Re: (ToeKnee805) » Reply  Edit


Ideally you want to connect the outer tie rods to the underside of the knuckle, not on top. If you run them on top of the knuckles you'll notice that the tie rods are actually slightly angled up when the car is at ride height which isn't good (tie rods angled up, control arms angled down could lead to some weird steering characteristics). Also, you want the tapered part of the outer tie rod spacers touching the tie rod end so it can move in a wider range of motion without hitting the spacer. Mounting the nut right up against the tie rod end isn't good either.

I just went through this whole debacle with installing a manual rack, t3 knuckles/outer tie rods and t3 rca's. Initially I had it set up basically how you did because it seemed like it was the only way it could work (tie rod ends wouldn't angle down far enough to mount below the knuckles with the suspension at full droop). I knew it wasn't right because of the angle of the tie rods and the steering felt weird, also the stock setup mounts below the knuckle. I talked to Gabe at t3 and he explained basically what I did above. I had to remove the rca's so I could actually get the t3 rod ends to mount below the knuckles without any binding (suspension at full droop). Luckily I'm not reall dropped so it's not a big deal. Steering feels WAY better.

Thanks for your input, i was wondering what the right way was, and the way you explain it makes complete sense. I did have a feeling my steering felt off, but i just thought that was the nature of the manual rack. Ill try to re do it the right way before i try to slide it.

Lol you know what's so crazy as I was slowly scrolling down reading your build I kept thinking to myself "he should've kept that car the stock blue or something close and that green looked horrible" then I see your inspiration car towards the end and I laughed! Good job on the build man I'm glad you got "inspired"

@Rookie86er.. haha So far I have gotten mixed feedback. What made me change was one day being bored and going on the "PICTURE OF YOUR CAR THREAD" and going through all (80 pages at the time) and everytime I saw a stock blue car i told myself: "F**k man, I need to go back to stock blue" so one day I decided that im cleaning the car up, throwing away the kit and going OEM JDM, and OEM Paint. It was ***** expensive but well worth it. To me the car looks a million times better.

Some have said the color isnt the "right" one, and some have said Green was more "me". But how is a stock color not the "right" one...? Others have told me it needed to be blue and they're so excited to see it blue now.
Everyone agrees though that the paint came out immaculate.


Next up and exhaust and a CF hood. Then maybe some Equip 03's.


@torque: we need to meet up when its running, were so close from eachother.

Haha thanks


So my old exhaust fell off at some railroad tracks

And I deliver with a SUPEROMG Rare 5Zigen Border 3 exhaust straight from Group A Motoring. Thanks again Simon you always come through.



You can see more of the paint of how it fades to gray in the dark.. Also the TRD Wing and DMAX Roof Spoiler.

I was running 185/60/14 Fuzion HRis which are crappy econo tires, but I had them set at like 35 psi. Ill try to bump them up to 60 next track event, alot of people have told me I wasnt carrying speed all the way through the course. I messed with the damping on the rear coilovers, and tried clutch kicking more often but i didnt even think about my PSI. D'oh haha

Considering how smooth that tracked looked I would just go for stiff, there will be no issue keeping the tires on the ground.

hmmm i use to instruct at willow before and i know balcony pretty well like the back of my head ..theres alot of hidden bumps ,you need to know where to place your car esp with a stock motor 86 to get thru ..trust me i know

watchin you , alot of your reaction is delayed ..change the front track or wheels of your car so you dont under a lil or ,pump the rear higher like you said ...youre gettin too lost in your wheel and the way you settle the car seems like your chasin it more than your controllin it ...your timing in initiation is all off ..... just practice more ..you remind of carlos (your idol) when he started out , very twitchy and car acts so stiff and weird and too choppy (i use to give him lots of advice when he started or when he staffed for us) ...but you'll get it ..hope that helps dont give up,dont cut corners and dont upgrade your motor yet ..you'll know what im sayin in the future

goodluck
