SupraSonic - Rally Car
my name's Josh. been lurking here for a while after purchasing myself an 84 MA61 Supra for the bargain price of $400. The car is my rally/khanacross vehicle, and after driving many others, i can honestly say i am absolutely in love with how they handle on the rough stuff.
The racing series i run is very entry level which really makes for cheap fun! The previous owner swapped out the standard 5me and put in a 5mge, w58 and lsd (which surprisingly the LSD still works a treat!). She has had a few other custom (and cheap) tweaks including a 3" suspension lift (odd i know!) to clear the Kuhmo mud tyres i run.

That is an amazing Supra you've got there! I've always wondered about RallyX with the Supra, looks like you've got it set up quite well! Have you thought about finding spare ones at the junkyard? There's also the T3 camber plates but I think that would mean an upgrade to coilovers.1984 Supra, 7MGTE,3",Magnaflow,Sparco 383,Sparco Corsa,AGX,Koni,Addco,TSC bar,LJM,GC Coilovers, Eibach,T3 Camber, T3 RCA, T3 Steering Arms, Dobinsons, SuperPro,Rear Camber Mod,PST,16x8 Circle Racing,Cressida Lip,JK BBK,PG Power Brute LSD,Black interior,Nashman Short Shifter

Thanks for the replies. It already has 3" lifted rear springs and 3" spacers on the front. Cant go any higher or it will affect my camber too greatly. Seems to be a great combo though when combined with the Kuhmo Road Venture Mud Tyres!

If you need more negative camber struts with the front lift, the 82-85 Celica struts have more negative camber built in than the supra struts. Since you have to replace the upper mounts already, it wouldn't be much more work to swap in some Celica strut housings from a junkyard.
With those big tires, how are the brakes? You can swap in the Cressida 87-88 Sedan front brakes (need to grind a little clearance on the caliper for the P-type rims), or go with other brake swaps with used parts from other cars in the "Big Brake Conversion" thread (which will require bigger rims).
I love the look of the car! I was thinking of doing something like that if I could've kept my 84 as a winter car. I can't have too many cars since we live at an apartment. Welcome!!
