I had not considered it to be honest! I just remember my TT auto having stock Bilstein suspension and being peerrrrrfectly comfortable... do the Eibach springs keep the same level of comfort or is it harsher for being lower?

My main concern is the arches catching, they will be getting rolled but rubbing on the boost squat will be a crash waiting to happen 🤣 

 

Below you can see the tyres going 'bluey' on the edge where its catching currently...

Mine have never rubbed on the rears, what size wheel, offset, and tyre do you use?

That's good to know, how's the comfort compared to stock TT setup?

My rear wheels are:

10J ET35 on 285/35/18 tyres

That's strange, mine are 10J ET45 and never had a problem with rubbing.

Your tyres are 10mm to wide on the rear, as the correct width is 275mm, also because of that you are roughly 10mm bigger on the diameter than you would be with a 35 profile on 275mm wide tyres. Maybe that is a contributing factor? Combined with the TRD suspension which could be lower? Also don't get the arches rolled, that's just a bodge in my opinion, instead of solving the problem properly.

Comfort wise on the Eibachs, I haven't really noticed a difference, but the handling is a massive improvement in my opinion, also of others that have driven my car hard :)

As an asaide, how do you find traction now that you are running more power ? do you spin the tyres aot or does the car put the power down well all things considered ?

I believe it is to do with the TRD coilies being set too low.. 

I chose the 285 tyres as they were the maximum recommended size for the rims, it puts the power down quite well considering that torque curve! SRD said it gripped well. Of course if its a tad damp/greasy it will light up in 3rd but thats expected! I know on any smaller tyres it would spin up at motorways speeds!

Traction was great when we gave it shit for 4 days in Germany in September, but it was shorts weather all the time we were there, so nice dry warm roads.

I think it is to do with the TRD's being set too low, maybe raise them and try them?

Yeh that's the next plan, if I get a dry day this weekend I'll look at raising the rear to see if that helps

SMOKEEE!! 

Was a bit scary, luckily I spotted it through the vented bonnet. Turns out the oil feed had a weep and was dropping oil on the turbo blanket and manifold. Very lucky it didn't go up in flames! 

Blanket was ruined, luckily @Dave_Batch was around to cut the end, bodge a temp repair and get me home! 

Got a new line made up from a local hydraulic lines place and fitted the new line with a new Funk Motorsport turbo and wastegate blanket 👌🏽

Gave the Supra an oil and filter change too and the oil was a bit dark and so far she's all gooooood! 

 

Because of all the Brexit crap my suspension still hasn't arrived. But TCB have said it's due any day now! 

Will also be ordering a K Sport front and rear set up so my LS400 kit and TT 2 pot rears will be for sale soon. 

Other than that not too much to report, SRD told me in December my alternator was struggling and the battery has been dying weekly so I fitted a new SRD alternator. But I fear it may be the battery itself, depleted once and now not happy! Will keep an eye on it. 

The most annoying part was the plug block was an inch further away so I had to cut and extend the wires, but apart from that it's been great!

I have been out on a few drives. 

 

Cars killed so far:

Stage 2 335i

Various 911's

C63S, I needed the boost upped to 550 to beat him, they are bloody quick cars even from a roll! 

 

I have videos of it all that I am putting together and will be uploaded soon.  

 

The car has struggled for traction but on Monday when it was 20 degrees I went out and with the tyres warmed up in hooked in 2nd gear at 550hp and it shot off, heart was racing! 

Look forward to turning it up and seeing what dragy box times it does at the full 700!

Siunds like great fun man.

2nd gear traction always been an issue if I fully plant it.

What tyres are you running

Yeh I love it!

 

Tyres are Eagle F1's, 285/35/18

Had a engine warning light come on Sunday ..sad times. I was only a few minutes from home so just eased it back. Turned it off and on and was still there, but weirdly next day it went away? 

 

I plugged it in and sent the file off to Lee/SRD at 6pm last night after work. 

He messaged me back just after 9pm the SAME DAY and told me what the problem was. Proper customer after care. 

 

Turns out my TPS triggered a fault, so I need to check the sensor or wiring when I next get a chance. Hopefully a simple fix!
