I had this wild idea that we should all take similar photos with our cars for TS group photo I can edit together. We just need to decide on a pose

100% behind this!!! Would be awesome.

As an aside, the badges have been processed through Heathrow.

EDIT: After watching your videos, Tom, I think one - complete with tunes - is in order for the TS group. Maybe we should send you clips too!

I may have to wash mine... lol Otherwise, awesome idea!

edit: also, I think everyone up here will have a picture covered in snow - you will seriously impress me if you can blend that in to your California weather!

A pic I snapped of the engine bay. Just gotta tidy up the stereo power wires and clean the rustproofing gunk off my shock towers. Then, of course, spray new 'cleaner' rustproofing, even though the car won't see winter driving.

That would be even better! Clips of each person with their car, maybe saying your name and location, then some driving/racing footage, wrenching footage, washing footage....then I could put it all together and make it my channel trailer

Thanks! It was a very fun, yet sometimes challenging, project. I could not have done it without the help of the other guys on the site, but you already know that since you read the thread.

I saw pictures of your car in your other post. I love everything about it! Please send me your front and rear bumper covers. I MUST have them!

Stellar plan. I'm in! I wonder if spring would be the best time. Getting very winter-like here now!

Badges update: Customs Clearance New York City - Gateway, USA. I should have them very soon!

Agreed. Now just be careful this winter with the extra torque!

Ah, my 2ZR baby will be getting tucked away for winter soon. This is part of the reason I bought the '08. I plan to keep the '06 for a good long time and Maritime winters are just too hard on the car bodies. My '08 of course will look like a rolling oil slick before long. It will be getting another thorough oiling soon.

Megan Axleback Arrived!

Pictures do not do this thing justice. It is one solid piece of hardware. Can't wait to get it bolted up!

Wow! That’s a beautiful piece. I believe I have a set of lowering springs in my shed if you’re interested....

Hey Tom! Almost everyone I talk to tells me I should lower it. Right now, I have the Penguin 13mm spacers on the back and I'm running 195/65R15 tires. What kind are the springs and how much of a drop? Do you think I'd have any rubbing issues? I'm going to look online again for pics to see the difference. If I did go for it, how much do you want for the springs?

There was something else I wanted to ask you about. What engine oil do you run? I know you race yours, but would you recommend synthetic for the 2ZR for normal, 'spirited' driving?

Thanks man!!!

Are you on stock rims? If so then you wont rub. Lowering springs would make the car more fun to drive especially if it's only a summer car and you don't use it to pack a bunch of people in it

I am on stock rims, Trevor. You don't think the 13mm Penguins and wider tire would create an issue? I would definitely have the kids in the back and some luggage for road trips, but I doubt that would exceed 200 lbs, worse case scenario.

Be prepared for rear left to buzz the liner if you hit highway dips at speed while loaded.
