    Default White GT

    I may as well get this forum going, I picked mine up yesterday and have put about 500kms on it so far.



    I've been trying to restrain myself and run it as per the book to make sure I don't have any warranty issues further down the track. There seems to be a nice kick of power at about 4500rpm though, which I can't wait to get properly stuck into. It's been a month since I last drove one properly at the media launch so I've forgotten what the power delivery is like.

    I had an interesting feeling with the tires in a long series of corners earlier, they got louder and louder and the car became quite squirmy as they heated up.

    I'm thinking that I might run into some issues with sharing the love around between these two over the next few weeks.

    It's hilarious how many looks you get in this car, and not the angry kind that I'm used to when driving the AE86.

    I know what you mean! On my 20min test drive of the car I got plenty of looks, including 2 guys in a red magna trying to work out what it is.

    Congrats on the car, going to see a lot more of these threads pop up and it's going to make my wait until dec more painful

    Yeah it has Yoko dB Decibels. I imagine they will be the first thing that gets upgraded - need to save some cash and give the AE86 some love first though.

    That is an SW20 in the background - it is my Mums
