tried a gt86 and it was meh.


nice chassis, but not nice enough to overcome the lack of motive urge.


btw brz and gt86 have different suspension setups.


the brz is softer up front, firmer at the back; gt86 is the opposite.


or maybe the other  way 'round.


meh !

Toyota's hotrod gt86/tr86 laps manfeild in 1:17ish and costs $85K..

Plenty of club cars that can be built for $10-15K would be quicker..

Gt86 racing is dominated by teenagers transitioning from karting ..

The cars look slow on the track but due to one make regulations they have some close battles..

Early gt86 can be bought for less than $30K but still don't excite me..

Should have come out with turbo engine and 200wkw and then they would fly..

it would be soooo wrong to put a turbo in the 86


lightweight and a high revving motor are the key to a great sportscar.


toyota at least should lose the flat four, they have a history of great n/a revvers - 4a-ge, 3s-ge, 2zz-ge etc.


dream up a new one, lose 100 or so kg, get mates at lotus to help sort the chassis.


job done.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
