Have you done a little DING-DING lately?

Does the car chime after you pass 100 kph? or did you disable it?



So you want to run a F20 or F22 swap? Always remember what HASportAE86 said:
It costs alot.
It's very fast.
Don't do it if you drive at an amatuer level. Honestly. You'll just suck...or crash...or suck and crash.

I have this car nearly over 3 month now but, I have never passed 100 km/h YET!!!
My commute does not use highways that max speed limit is like 60 km/h.
(I think I only went up to 80km/h so far..... )

My old EP71 Starlet had that chime & I really hated!!

Purchased nice reading material. OEM Parts Catalog.
It does not cover everything but, very handy when I order parts from a dealer.

It contains MSRP of each parts that I found OEM Zenki Levin Lip was only 10,000 yen when this catalog was published in 1988...

Someone please! develop a "time machine" for me....

no prob haru.

yes yes, fix that 4x4 status and the shallow wats..lols i think it still looks good.
but you gotta throw some cali style into her.

so the booster seat for kids, are they meant for lap belt systems? im currently trying to figure out how to put a shoulder belt set in my coupe and wagon cause i cant use booster seats. kids are growing faster and running out of room for regular car seats..

All my friends are teasing about my car height.
They even gave me a box of tissue since they thought my nose is bleeding due to the high altitude......

Good news is that one of my friend just offered his old "kg/mm springs" for my car that I should have them installed very soon and this is how it should look after.

My friend`s old Levin with kg/mm springs.

I know, it is not slammed or low enough for most of AE86 owner but, I think it looks way better than my current set up.

Regarding a booster seat, are you referring to the red one that you see in my front passenger seat or my Bridgestone baby seat?
If you are referring to my red one, they are designed to be used with 3 point seat belts ONLY.

Look what I found.
This guy installed 3-point seat belt into his AE86 that was done by IMPULSE.

http://body.e-impulse.co.jp/?p=1557

It looks so OEM that I wish I could do this to my car as well.
No details in the above link, it is just 100% custom work using some other car`s belts.

What kind of CALI STYLE do you suggest?
Can you hook me up with "Carl`s Jr. #86" ?
(wait! I have stuck of In-Out Burger stickers!!)

I am not sure if I am able to go any deeper than current set up since my fronts are equipped with FC3S Calipers.
(I wish I could put 14`s that there are 1,000 times more selections.)

.....& interesting part is I am running Integra / Civic Type-R Rotors in my rear with OEM AE86 calipers w/adapter plates.

I wish I could purchase 15x8 rota or axis wheels.......

Purchased used Lateral Rod from Garage Shapple.
Also, my friend Tom-san gave me special deal on his used Kg/mm lowering springs.
Yes, I am going to apply fresh coat of paint on Lateral Rod.

Hopefully, I can fix my 4x4 status....

Hey Haru, if you wish for your car to go lower, I would take an angle grinder and lop off half a coil or more. I'm not familiar with those springs, but maybe some locals would know what a good amount to cut off is?

Last time I was in Japan, I didn't see any monster american sized speed bumps and all the driveways were super shallow

Do it!


please keep posting these cool things you find in Japan. the 3 point belt conversion is really cool. I had a rear seat belt JAM on me a year ago...and my friend had to pee really bad! I rushed home and cut him out with some shears. What a memory!

Thanks for your comments!
It is just funny that my friend Tom (seller) mentioned exactly same thing what you said! He suggested to cut about 1.5 coils as well.

I totally understand but...I think I am going to install them without cutting them.
Currently, I am running FC3S brake conversion in front and if I lower too much, there is a strong possibility that both front tires might hit my fenders.

I am already running 15mm spacers in fronts to just clear those huge calipers...well may be not huge....but, bigger than stock.

I may sound crazy but, I am actually planning to remove my FC3S brake set up....just because I don't have to use spacers and use 14 inch wheels.

Yes, comparing with U.S. roads, Japanese roads are simply nice, no pot holes, crazy speed bumps....etc.

I miss my old stance that I should be perfectly fine for Japanese roads.....but, not until I replace my brakes....

Your episode about rear seat belt is just WOW!!
He did make it to the toilet......right?

sadly..no. he peed in a bottle. i dont think he missed but i threw away the rear seat anyways

haha, that is why corolla guys run a lot of front camber. I don't know if you want to go through all that hassle to have it look cool, but if you add a lot of camber when you lower it, you shouldn't have any serious rubbing. Flaring the fenders like I did on my car will help too

im thinking of doing something like this^^^^not only for my coupe, but my wagon as well.
gotta hit the yards more often now.

those kg/mm springs are great. now if you had the shocks too, it would be 100 times better. my friend has them on his coupe and loves them. shame he plans to sell his coupe and doesnt want to take parts off.

Oh, no....pee in a bottle...

I used own FC3S with camber plates on front and my brand new tires were gone within a month that I learned it expensive way.

You are right, flaring fenders might be an option!

That seat belt conversion is amazing right?
Japanese regulations are some what "easier" than Cali but, in certain areas such as safety equipment, it is very strict.

This 3 point conversion looks perfect but, just because it is no OEM, it will not consider as seat belt......

My current shocks are KYB Rally that I think I am going to stick with it.
....but, yes, I understand that now is the chance to replace it with newer aftermarket shocks as well....

lookin good!

yes camber wear is an issue...but it can be reduced a lot if the toe is set very carefully. I decided to run cheap/hard tires for the street since I sometimes drive 20K miles a year and don't want to destroy tires too often.

These photos were taken in my parking lot that I did move my car to the spot approx. 100 feet.....and yes, it was kind a scary.
It is still snowing as of now, and I don't think I can drive it anymore without either snow-chain or snow-tires.....

Adding little USDM touch!
I am probably one of a few AE86 owner who has these decals installed in J-land.

Thanks to pholife for great decals!

I feel like I got my old GT-S back again....

...now, when it gets little bit warmer, I am going to install my Silver Zenki Door Decals.
