i did get alignment.. sadly i still have negative camber because the front of my car sits too low, it just cant be pushed any more positive

i ended up finding a 3" gasket at sidney brake and tire or whatever its called on 5th street, was probably for a diesel truck or something tho. ended up having to chop the thing up. most 3" is 3 bolt instead of 2

Rx7's are great fun too, i used to own one. loved it to bits til the engine exploded as most rotaries will in time.

if you do look at Rx7's only get a rebuild one, err now that i think about it, i know a guy in vancouver selling a pretty sweet ass 85 Rx7 GSL-SE, not nearly as much potential as a supra, but its clean, modded and rebuilt. ofcourse it is old so it will need some restoration, the owner has done most of the drivetrain repair but it does need some diff. work... not really sure what generation of Rx7 you're interested in, but heres one to peak at. i know he needs to get it off his property ASAP to make room for a R32 skyline hes buying..

http://revscene.net/forums/showthrea...hreadid=219143

if you have more cash id go to something newer, and preferably made by toyota, tho

Yeah my car went "boom" I guess. Don't really know what happened...
Just never had the time to check anything out really - fucker died on me when I was trying to move back up island to start work.

But Bob is picking it up today for me We'll know exactly what is wrong sometime in the near future, hopefully it's not too too major - or else the supra is gonna be parked for a while... again.
