Soarer Build #4
Another video in the series detailing the build of my Soarer. The focus
this time was on tightening up the rear end with solid sub frame bushes,
slid diff mounts, and rose jointed traction and toe rods. More aero work
focusing on airflow through the coolers, and around the engine bay and
front of the car.

The second video detailing the build of my JZZ30 Soarer track car buildup.
The action now takes place in Darwin, Northern Territory on the Hidden
Valley circuit. The basics were covered in the early days before as seen in
my video "1:10s for under ten grand at Wakefield Park". This video picks up
the action in Darwin where scrutineers called for the addition of a roll
cage. The roll cage is a full weld in CAMS spec cage designed for a mates
Sprots Sedan. To offset this gain in weight the car went on a crash diet
with the glass replaced with Lexan (not the front screen), the passenger
door entirrly gutted, and the floor of the boot cut out to make way for a
rear diffuser. I even went sor far as to take a hole saw to the boot, but
after two hours work I'd only saved 150 grams so I gave up. The front
splitter area saw some more development, and the front bushes were replaced
with polyurethane (which had to be machined down to fit).
Toyota Soarer V8 UZZ32 Presentation Active Suspension 4WS Exhaust Interior Features
This is a quick video of my Toyota Soarer UZZ32, number 453 out of 873 ever
built (pretty rare machine). Please keep in mind this car was made in 1991,
the features on it were simply amazing for that year.
This model is also known as the Lexus SC400 in the US however it doesn't
feature most of the goodies the JDM only Soarer had. Funny enough the body
was designed in California and it was the first car to be completely
computer designed (CAD). I have to say the designers did an amazing job, it
still looks special and not so outdated.
In the video I showcase the computer controlled active hidro-pneumatic
suspension on some train track slates (notice how level the body is), show
the four wheel steering system (4WS), give you a little taste of the stock
Exhaust note of the amazing 1UZ-FE
4.0L V8 engine and also show the interior of the car and some of it's
features. At some point you'll hear some strange noises from the mirror,
that's actually the ultrasound cleaning feature. Pretty awesome, eh ?
I mostly made the video so that I can show the car to prospective buyers as
I wanted to sell it but I just couldn't bear to let it go, it's pretty
special to me.
More details soon.

Fix a 1993 Lexus SC400 Dash Light Bulb Replacement
I'm changing it up this week and showing you how to replace a light bulb in
my 1993 Lexus SC400. This is a simple project, however more difficult to
get the correct bulb. The Lexus parts book is correct or wasn't for me.
The bulb comes separate from the holder which in this case was green.
There are black ones that are smaller bulbs and matched the size I received
from Lexus. My suggestions is to order both then take what you don't need
back. They are about $6.00. We don't have a Lexus dealer in town so for
something to do I drove 75 miles each way to pick one up.
