Drifter by choice, fan of classics...
I don't agree that the 510 and an SR engine are better suited for each. The 510 is a clean car, classic, even elegant. The SR20 DET is a brute, reliable but very harsh and very powerful engine. It little mods, the engine will have 300 hp and a sound to make the Police arrest you immediately. Also, an SR will keep that clean body 510 in a drift all the time. Actually, that it wouldn't be bad at all :))))

@ThelamusCeasar - I think 1 inch lower on a Supra it is a 2 inch lower on a Soarer since the Supra stock coilovers are 1 inch lower than stock Soarer coilovers. So, to keep a street legal car - I still looking for the exact amount to lower the car.

@ThelamusCeasar Yeah, is that bad? Still looking for a set of good lowering springs to fit. In this part of Europe, no one has ever seen or heard about Soarer.
#KeepFightingMichael.......they put that on the car. Didn't expect that. Yes, keep fighting Michael.

@ThelamusCeasar - here's mine
@ThelamusCeasar - Well, I have +35 the offset on the wheels. Do you still think that I need another 10mm on spacers?

@ThelamusCeasar V160 / V161 Getrag is very expensive. Good luck with that :) How does your Soarer look with 265 in the rear? 265/35R18? I might do that.
Cool car. Just wondering about the cost. Could we see a photo of the....invoice? :)))

Thanks Dino, I've been waiting long time for another Soarer tale!
Two think to add - Soarer's did (very rarely) get a manual gearbox, the R154. Another thing, I guess Nagahama did make another interesting thing - keeping the old diff and not changing with the Supra V160 diff. Soarer auto has 4,08:1 and the 6 speed Getrag only comes with 3,8 :1.
And I don't believe that is still running 225 tires on the rear! I have the same in the front but really I'm days away from 275/35R18 in the back. Now, I have to think things over...

I would like to know why nobody sell the entire pack same model/design? Steering wheel, roll-cage, seat, seat belts, helmet. Everything inside. I really want something apart, a set with all this, bearing same design and color combo. Now, every body has MOMO steering wheel, SPACO seats, CUSCO roll-cage and TAKATA seat belts. Different designs, weights, qualities, price's and colors.

Still wanna see the original 2.6 V6 engine from that Mercedes never leave the car...

No, I hope they keep that engine. The M112 could be turbocharged and in a big way. Japan can do it better than anyone. It's not a 2.7 unit, it a 2.6 liters in E26 variant, found in the CLK. It will be 6 cylinders 2600 cc, just like the RB26.
It will have a lightweight front axle and an already fit engine.
Do you really wanna se a JZ engine in a Mercedes Benz CLK? Really?
Don't get me started with 'merican muscle V8...
It could be also in a group of german car with 2 doors, RWD and powerful 6 cylinder engine. Looks that will disappear soon, the BMW 428i being a joke of a car with too many horses and 4 cylinders......

@STJ88 - Same question here. I spin 245R18 easy with a 1JZ stock. So, in a megawatt engine, the car, even in AWD form, still runs 245/40R18 ???? Are the Mickey Thompson ET Street Radial tires THAT good? Or...what else?

Dino, go for it! Buy the car. If it's asking price is less than 10.000 dollars, you can think about it. A restored one will cost you well over 40.000$ in Europe. If you have the 1300 VC model, I can help you with engine parts almost for free. We did make that engine in Romania for almost 50 years :)))

Why the two Alpine's have the same French number plate? It was famous or what? Or maybe was a easy and cheap buy from ebay like I found for my Soarer with 1JZ 300 and some giberrish signs in Japanese? :)))

I don't understand why the Corvair has a huge bulk in the bonnet. This is a rear engine car! Still, a very cool car, just because of the engine in the back, not because of the ugly hood.
Regarding the F40, what it's all about? The car was totaled, crashed beyond repair. So it was done. That's it. This is really great. Another F40 to live. It's not original? It was wrecked!!!!
