    The 2JZ is an absolute animal.... Really an amazing motor.... Currently making 336rwkw...
    It will tow a car on a trailer (2100kg) at pretty much whatever speed you want, even up hills. It doesnt slow down at hills, it just keeps powering along.


    Anyway, this car will travel alot, and this thread will be more of a scrapbook with pics from it's journeys around Australia.....

    It might bore some people, but it might interest a few, so here she is.....

    I like. How do your coilovers go with towing a car? The rear end squat much?
    Just another Muppet

    No rear squat at all.......

    The coilovers are not bad, but I will be looking at getting some stiffer and more adjustable ones next....
    I believe TEIN Supertreets are a basic street coilover....

    Looks good! I was thinking of getting a celsior to use as a tow car.
    But this should go well and serve more than just a tow car, haha.

    Stalling up with a trailer on the back is a retarded idea.... I would never do that...... It would prob rip the whole back off the chassis.... lol
