    Help me make a decision! Buying another hachi!

    After an S14, an NA6 and an NB8A, I'm sick of all the bullshit - I want another hachi :) My criteria is as follows: Must be clean. Absolutely must be clean. Not perfect, but not a rust bucket. Owner must be open to a reasonable price. AE86's - as much as I love them - are not worth...

    Turbo or Supercharger?

    I get my full license in about 9 hours and I'm trying to toss up with what direction I want to take. Keeping in mind that my car is a bit of a semi-streetable drift hack, which would be better? 4AGE ST running a T25 turbo on low boost (would most like rebuild 4AGZE

    Decent Radiator?

    I need a radiator and I can't justify $700 on an OEM replacement. I don't have $600 to spend on a Kyong so I need something temporary on the cheap to get the car going (car's booked in for a tune on the 26th Feb) Would this be alright to run for a few months...

    Starter motor; where's the wire?

    I can't seem to find any info on the starter motor :/ I just need to know how to hook it up? One to a 12v constant and one to a 'signal' I'm assuming Does the signal come out of the body loom? Is it black/orange?

    EOI: ADM 86 w/ Silvertop (incomplete "project")

    Just an expression of interest: My aussie AE86 with a silvertop. I'm only selling because I badly need a car that I can rely on; my current "daily" isn't practical for a number of reasons (cv's on it's way out, drivers door doesn't open, no radio, etc). If I had a daily that worked, I'd be...
