i'm not a big mesh fan

when the time comes for wheels i'm going to look for something along the lines of xr4 or 03 equips 14/15 x 8/9. Going to paint them all black and keep the sportcracks as drift spares.

but i'm not really concerned with wheels right now. diff and harness come first...

They give you those plates in Wisconsin if the car is older then a set number, or do you have to request it?

you have to special order them

car must be a classic (20 years or older)
car cannot be driven in January
for street modified or replica vehicles

they have blue ones that say "collectors" also, same rules apply but they are for unmodified or restored classic vehicles.

Its a one time fee, the plates are yours for life, you can put them on any vehicle that applies and there is no registration to renew or anything like that.

Too much work for no real diff Razz Should make the car faster, but highway RPM is going to suck. Did you calculate what RPM 75mph (or whatever you drive on the highway) will be at?

i think i read somewhere that 70mph was around 4600 or 4700? not bad

I wanted a TRD 2 way, and I found one already all assembled in a 3rd member with 4.77s but by the time I had the cash it was gone.

The cars old as hell, and I think that rebuilding it with the new fd and shit will be a nice setup that will last. I'm going to have it open anyway so I might as well do it all. I still want a TRD diff but I cant find one for sale in the states. They used to be everywhere, but now that I have cash they've all disappeared, and I'm not buying one from some shady ebay vendor with 3-4 month shipping times

word.

I just looked it up using T50 gear ratios, the 4.77 rear, and 195/50-15 (assuming you'd run something similarly sized)

5th gear:
4000 = 66 mph
5000 = 82 mph
6000 = 98 mph
7000 = 115 mph
8000 = 131 mph

Not that bad, actually. But staying around 5000 RPM for long periods might get annoying. (and possibly hot)
