Friends tell you to get a Miata

Purchase MR2

Remove pre-cats, replace with aftermarket header from eBay.

Tell everybody you're going to swap the engine with a 2ZZ or K20

this is all completely fucking retarded but i just wanted to point out you're particularly retarded

if you're passing at WOT there might be a tendency to let off the gas eventually
if you let off abruptly enough snap oversteer can occur

MR2 owner here.

It usually happens when people push the car through a turn. These cars have a tendency to understeer (or feel like they're understeering) on the way into a turn, and then "pivot" into an oversteer right after the apex.

Totally normal, and under control, but it can feel a little dramatic for a beginner.

Sometimes they panic and abruptly yank their foot off the accellerator and the car gets all swirly.

mfw beginner me added more throttle to get the car under control instead of letting off and losing control
i was proud of how i handled it at age 16
[spoiler] i crashed my mr2 3 years later when a mexican lady rear ended me [/spoiler]

If you snap oversteer in an MR2 it's your own fault, especially a W30.

sounds like you have a shit tune mate, try some toe in and front suspension tuning

mine drives on rails after coilovers, slightly wider tyres and some chassis bracing, left foot braking gently can help you get some weight on that front

im really sorry.
What happened? I feel like my 1zz (also post facelift) has plenty of power and i want to run it to the ground so i can justify a 2zz

WebTool

How do you get the 'drives on rails' feel
Just got some coilovers on, but doesn't feel planted with the sw20

DeathDog

Let's take a functional car and make it not functional
Dunno about his car, but there's more to suspension than just 'slap on some coilovers'.
Pretty much every entry levl coilover is utter shit, before you get them on a shock dyno.

Yea I know the 'entry level coilover' talk. I hear it every time- but I thought at least a set of 1.2k$ coilovers would be a world of a difference compared to stock.
I just want that planted feel like a modern sports car

Evilember
Evilember

You've got to get them tuned.

Ever try riding an expensive full-suspension mountain bike? Try fiddling with the adjustments on the shocks. A few clicks and it's like a different machine. Same principal with a car on a larger scale.

Lunatick
Lunatick

idunno about sw20, I just have BCBR, camber in rear some camber in front and tiny bit of toe in, havent done suspension tuning on track.
Oh and keeping the car light above all.

I guess its because sw20s are pigfat, try seeing if you can get rid of some useless weight
there is defo more to suspension than slapping on coils, cheapest I'd go are bc br brand new. Below that you are in a world of unknown.
While you dont have to go full autism and pay 500 dollars a hour to get dyno benched and aligned every time you run over a bump, some trial and error tuning and trying out other peoples tunes can get you started. except with cars you have tyre pressure, alignement settings, anti roll bar settings etc as well to worry about.
Tweaking a bike was piss easy, car takes a long time

because MR is literally backwards to everything they know, which is mostly FF

honestly i gotta practise recovering from snap overmeme

I just used a bike as an example because you can really feel the difference small tweeks to the compression/rebound make.

eGremlin

not as bad but there's still a learning curve

funnily enough driving an older porsche is much more dangerous with its RR layout but most dipshits couldnt afford one so it didnt get the flak that the MR2 did

More power and torque, also has much more potential for tuning with the stock engine (unless you get the shitter 5S-FE model)

Put in some crash/cam bolts today to get rid of the negative camber I had in the rear wheels. (almost to 0° now yay) Taking it to a alignment shop Friday.
Drove around some, Maybe I'm just not used to it yet, I've only put on 10 miles since I installed the coilovers anyway.

But now I'm pretty sure my left rear stock shock mount just shit the bed because it just started clunking over every bump. Fuck. Why are they so expensive it's just a fucking metal slab with a bearing.

Snarelure

Well, I got unlucky and the bearing broke causing something to bind and the rod went straight through the block and then everything was on fire. I found parts of rod all over the road and there was a big hole in the engine. My advice is to swap your motor for a low mileage 2zz when the mileage starts to get high. My 1zz tried to murder me at 101k

Flameblow
Flameblow

maybe lol.
The 1zz FED (MR-S, Celica GT, ETC) was made in a different plant than the 1zz FE (Pontiac Vibe). Also this doesnt seem like a common issue, I just have terrible luck. Every car I've owned has tried to kill me.
Ford Escort ZX2- All electronics fail on the freeway at night in the rain at 70 mph.
MR2 - Fire
Focus ST - Accelerator gave false input and almost took me off the on ramp. Replaced under warranty

yeah i understand you man, I used to do downhill and mtb street as well for like a decade. But my hands and joints got fucked up from constant abuse so now I'm doing cars. Most people moved over to cars as well.

uhh, buddy, reccomended camber to get any grip out of an MR layout is 2.5-3.5 neg camber on rear
