    Makes sense. The D1GP season is coming fast. Not enough time for the tuners to develop parts and get their hands on the new engine.

    Awesome, cool to see the work that the D1GP teams have been putting in on these MKVs. IIRC, they've had the cars for some time now; production prototypes that were given to them by Toyota, I believe. Expect to see JZ swaps (and hopefully LS swaps as well) in these things for a long while, especially in drifting. These guys have blueprinted builds that can make near 4-figure power numbers all day and clearly there's more than enough room to drop them right in. Looked like the factory Aristo sump even fit fine lol. D1GP is literally 2J and LS-swaps in pretty much every kind of chassis, save for a couple VRs and some rotaries, don't expect that to change anytime soon.

    The 3258lb/1478kg weight sounds about right for what the 6-cyl car should have been rated, according to all the info I had prior to Toyota USA claiming the 3397lb/1540kg number. I'm interested to see what a US car looks like on the scales. I find it hard to believe that there is enough safety equipment in the US cars to make up nearly 150lbs, but who knows. We can presume that the car in the video had closer to an empty tank of gas, but other than that it looked pretty much fully dressed and in production spec. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    I'm sure it wasn't a Premium car. We have been theorizing that the diff with ours here could be nearly 100lbs, though I think its closer to 50. Also there could be a difference from fluids. They had the car in the shop to strip it down so perhaps that was a fully drained car. Technically OEM weight numbers are supposed to be dry, but in previous gens of Supras I've typically seen the factory claimed number on truck scales somewhere around half a tank of gas and all other fluids topped up.

    I kinda doubt there's much difference in crash structure anymore. In the 80s and earlier the JDM cars were all much lighter because they practically didn't even run rebars, or they were composite (look at the inside of a JDM ae86 front bumper sometime, scary). But the mk4\SC400 etc all had aluminum rebars. Non unlike the one seen on that car in the video above. Though it does look pretty wimpy, maybe US\Can is much thicker, but it will still be aluminum. But shouldn't be more then like a 20lb difference just for rebars.
