    You nailed it. The first time, it was, what the hell! I had to keep a light control on the wheel and just lightly respond but I am surprised, with everything involved and what this vehicle is, that this would not be more solid. It isn't a 60's Corvair after all.

    It gave me a bit of a fright one day with traction control off in a really good low speed dig it took off sideways mid way through 3rd when it started boosting hard

    Camber & dust on the road wouldn't have helped,

    I thought to myself leave traction on (not as much fun),

    This is maybe one reason why you see all those wrecked ones ???

    That is a good point, and something Toyota needs to confront with a recall.

    Does Toyota not provide an alignment within the first 2,000 miles for the Supra like BMW does?

    You were one of the lucky ones and survived. All the others are dead.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's limited with the stock suspension. I wish it was double wishbone like the MKIV but it is what it is. I think aftermarket front and rear suspension would be the best remedy.

    MACPHERSON STRUT CONS
    MacPherson struts are tall, effectively raising the center of gravity and making it difficult to lower a vehicle's profile and ride height for performance and handling. They also change camber angle whenever the suspension moves, making it more difficult to keep all four wheels in solid contact with the road while cornering, affecting control. On older vehicles that are starting to show some wear, struts can also transmit more noise through the body of the car.

    Some improved versions of MacPherson struts are designed to separate suspension and steering geometry, with improved scrub radius and kingpin offset angles and a reduced tendency toward torque steer in FWD platforms.

    Jackie D is testing this theory and so far cannot substantiate it. (geometry change under rear suspension loading conditions)

    Good to see Scotty enjoyed the car despite his gripes about it being a BMW collaboration.

    If this was a serious review, this is the worst one I've seen.

    This seasoned auto mechanic said the reason for the HP difference between the MKV and the Z4, is because the Z4 has two turbochargers???

    Then eventually follows up and says the 2021 Supra will get the twin turbos as well??? Do ppl really take this guy seriously?

    Scotty mostly does videos about general topics and also Q&As that typically focus on saving money over time.

    Even in this video, he makes sure to talk about how since it's a BMW, you have to pay more for maintenance etc. I like to watch his videos to learn about various things, but he tends to make a lot of mistakes with some of the info, like saying the B58 in the Z4 is twin-turbo.

    If you have no interest in cars whatsoever, and are only concerned about spending as little money as possible, then he's your guy. I'm just glad he's reasonable enough to enjoy the car despite the gripes he has with it
