waiting for: 2021 Nitro Yellow GR Supra 3.0
Hey Mate, really cool build! Hope you are having a blast with this beast. I am about to order mine and am struggling with the color selection. I like the yellow but worry that it will look dull with our german weather here. I saw your last pics which seem to have been shot on a rainy day and was wondering if you could upload one of the pics without the editing to see how the color looks on a really rainy day - only if you have the time of course. Would appreciate a lot! Anyway, enjoy the ride!

Cheers mate. It really finishes off the car doesn't it?
yeah looks fab. Managed to spot the HKS springs too - next two mods i'd like to do to mine. Can't decide about whether to have the spoiler in black to match the OE splitter and diffuser or white. Just getting new winter wheels sorted so won't be just yet anyway so time to decide :)

Thanks! The Yellow really pops in person. This is the car the day after the trackday, still riany & gloomy. Just taken on iPhone 12, no editing.

Good choice on the HKS springs, I dropped mine 25mm but they can go lower. Personally I would go White as will match the body colour as I prefer an OEM+ look but it's up to you. The Heritage Spoiler comes as Gloss Carbon fibre so you can hold it onto your car to get an idea of what a black/carbon spoiler would look like before commiting to spraying it.

A quick update.

Not driven the car too much due to UK Lockdown number 3 and the poor weather. Did manage to do a few short drives recently though and very keen for the restrictions and weather to improve!

Meanwhile the big brake kit turned up!

AP Racing Radical 6 Pot Calipers w/382mm Discs.

I'm just waiting on the brake pads and then I'll get these fitted along with the Cusco Front Anti roll bar & Goodridge braided lines.

Car has been dropped off for the fitting of the brakes, lines & front anti roll bar.

A few before pics.

Give some impressions about body roll and overall flatness of the car (esp side to side transitions) after the Cuso sway bar ;)

Oh I will once done! In regards to that, the HKS lowering springs & Cusco front strut brace do a good deal of work of reducing that side to side roll.

I'm hoping the front anti roll bar titghtens it even more so.

I hope there will not be additional understeer on hard cornering, since making front sway bigger without rear shifts the balance towards the understeer a bit, so check that one out ;)

So did Cusco front strut brace help with roll? I know it just stiffens the front and eliminates some body flex but didnt think about it as an actuall roll reducer :hmm:

Oh I’m aware of that but with over 600bhp in such a short wheelbase, taming some of the oversteer will help overall handling for me.

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly as both suspension & strut brace went in together. If anything the car “points” more easily.
