Thread: Lana the FR-S

    I love the burnt orange in those cars. I too was looking at one to replace my trusty GT-Four. I got behind the wheel and it felt great, everything where it should have been. I liked the steering wheel diameter, short shift, comfortable racing seats ... and then I turned it on and pushed the clutch. I promptly farted on the seat and got out and let the next guy take it for a drive.
    Loved the handling, loved the feel. Hated the clutch and the 200hp.

    I just bought (2 days ago) a 5.7L HEMI Chrysler 300C AWD to replace the GT-Four. Nice comfy drive and tons of balls over the GT-Four.
    I was looking at a 2015 WRX STi but that meant I had to get rid of my Celica (the wife said it was "the same thing"). So instead I went to the darkside and bought a USDM (Ughh!) "Luxury Sedan", thus not being a sports car I got to keep my baby too!

    Not a bad choice on a USDM.

    And I do agree, not a fan of the clutch, but I have gotten use to it. From what I have read, the clutch feels fine whenever you upgrade to something a little stronger.

    My only complaint with the clutch really is how far up it engages. Its an easy fix, I just haven't cared enough to actually adjust the pedal yet. Probably due to the fact that I never drive the damned thing. I've had it for a year and a half now and have barely put 6500 miles on it.

    Why is that?

    That was tiny. I was like, "Whuuuhhh...." The turbo was probably the same size as my stock twins on the Supra. The manifold is some weird shaped thing that came from under the motor and the cold side of the IC pipe crossed over the downpipe. The guy was cool though. Said he wish he went with a different turbo set-up though.
