7th February 2007, 07:59 PM
she looks neat as man, what kind of coilovers/brakes are you using?

first pic looks like the cars in your house or you live in a shed or something with the car cause of all the stuff in the background
are you gonna do an engine conversion??

8th February 2007, 09:29 PM
ae fornts never did it for me, but something about them when they are dumped on their ass. Looks like its going to be a sweet project, i just bought this ke from this dude in townsville, mint as, beige/tan colour, 55000 clicks not one spec of rust, for 500. http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/rant.gif

8th February 2007, 09:39 PM
holy crap that looks sooooo nice man, dont pig it up just drift it


8th February 2007, 09:41 PM
that looks like its in really good condition.

do you have to have your camber tops set all the way to positive camber with the sigma LCA's?

i agree with driftke70. i dont like ae fronts unless they are dumped on there ass

8th February 2007, 11:30 PM
yeah ive been told to set it all the way positive otherwise it gets to much friction or something im not too sure, im just using custom coilovers on 86 struts with japo brakes with mu secret pads

and yeah i have taken these pics in my garage haha coz it was like 11pm and couldnt see outside

8th February 2007, 11:31 PM
im also booked in on saturday to get my guards rolled to fit my new ssr reverse meshies in them, should look nice

22nd February 2007, 06:57 AM
im not normally a fan of the ae70 front end but yours is looking great.

what size are the SSR's?

Keep it up dude.


22nd February 2007, 10:21 AM
my god i'm so itching to dump my KE on its ass, 2 more days to go hmmmmm

looks really good mate, look so tuf fon there ass. did you paint the sills or were yours already white? mine are black but are getting painted, it adds to the dumpage effect http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tongue.gif

22nd February 2007, 02:14 PM
yeah it is pretty low at the back now, im lovin it, looks nice feels stiff and tight, the ssr's are 15 x 6.5 +3 offset, and the sills were already white, i used to have a spirit and they were black but i much prefer the white, makes it look alot better,

cant wait to get some tyres on the xr4's

22nd February 2007, 03:37 PM
were you driving up wanganui hill this afternoon when all the school kids were walking down?? i saw a hot white ke70 with ssr meshys on the front and the thing was pretty slammed. i think it was you. it looks the goods!

22nd February 2007, 09:00 PM

22nd February 2007, 09:55 PM
im runnin falcon springs in the back with sierra shocks and custom coilovers in the front, cant wait to put the longchamps on

23rd February 2007, 08:14 PM
getting tyres on my xr4's tomorrow, does anyone know who stretches them on or can any tyre place do that, cant wait to get them on im hoping it will look hot, got a ae86 crossmember today and a jdm bigport short motor

23rd February 2007, 08:35 PM
You wont be able to stretch them anyway if they are 15x6.5, as i believe the smallest 15" tyre is a 195/50.

23rd February 2007, 09:20 PM
they are 15 x 7, does that make any difference

24th February 2007, 10:14 AM
It will most probably sit flush, with no to very minimal stretch.

24th February 2007, 03:00 PM
k thanks guys,

25th February 2007, 06:48 PM
people give me ideas on what i can do to her, im bored and want to do something cool http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/tongue.gif

2nd March 2007, 10:54 AM
new pics with my xr4's, im liking them, i think i might get another pair for the front, i like them better than the reverse mesh

2nd March 2007, 11:56 AM
Looks real hot dude, and yeah i think the xr4's look hotter the meshies aswell.

Yep he is on the money http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/wink.gif

2nd March 2007, 09:18 PM
Does it scrub much on the rear? I've got 15x7 XR4's on the back of mine and it isn't nearly as low yet I scrape with 2 people in the back. Must need Sierra's and whatnot.

3rd March 2007, 09:25 AM
Thats why i pulled my rear seats out, this ain't no transporter lol!

3rd March 2007, 09:33 AM
yeah, i lipped my rear guards and it scraps a little bit, when there is another person in the front passanger seat it scrubs a bit more, im sure if there were people in the back it would be to much scrubidge to drive it anywhere, it loooks good though,

4th March 2007, 02:28 PM
The xr4's look sweet http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forums/emoticons/smile.gif

i can get supply brand new 165/50/15's......stretch time[/b]

4th March 2007, 02:50 PM
