New gamer with a real life XRT
Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum, but not forums in general.
A friend showed me his registered Live For Speed game and man I was impressed. So I downloaded the demo and I'm loving it.


To start off I'm 15, and I've owned 2 Toyota Supras. One was a 1983 Celica Supra. We did a na-t on it, and eventually parted it out. Now I own a 1987 Mark 3 Supra, and I can't believe how close it is to the XRT in LFS. I have brought pictures along with me, and was just introducing myself.

Also, I would like to note I have been searching this forum for a little over a month and decided I'm ready for a new home.

Enjoy the pics everyone!

-Matt

You've owned 2 Toyota Supras?
Looking at the pictures of the car, in sequence, it is like getting ready to have sex....

...and then I get to this...

I'm sorry, you have me confused...

Yup, one was a 1983 Celica Supra, which should also be on my photobucket account as well. I've been a member on various Supra forums for years.

The 1983 Supra I bought for 250$ for working at a pizza place. Ended up saving money, tapping the oil pan, slapping a 7m manifold and ct26 on the 5m, and a nice rising rate fuel pressure regulator and at 8 psi, it was a beast. We ended up blowing the stock head gasket not to long down the road (I really wasn't suprised) and we then parted the car out.

Then I bought a 1987 Supra when I just turned 15 for 1900$. I bought it automatic non-turbo with a fresh paintjob and only 140k on the body, and we are currently in the process of a 2jz-ge-t swap.

As for live for speed, it's an amazing game and I can't wait to scrape up enough for the license!
your 15? and u drive? and u owned 3 cars now? and you had a job? hmmmmmmmm?
Quote from rainspecialist :your 15? and u drive? and u owned 3 cars now? and you had a job? hmmmmmmmm?

Only 2 cars, both Toyota Supras, and both lucky finds.

Yeah I've had 2 jobs, one at 14 holding a sign for a pizza place. And now I'm currently working with/for my grandpa arc welding. We usually weld handrails but sometimes hitches and farm equipment/repair.

As of driving, nope, in the state of Kentucky you have to be 16 to be a permit holder, 16 & 1/2 to be an intermediate license holder, and 17 to be an unrestricted license holder. But I still take it around the block after tuning =D

Ohh, right, that explains it all then.

Yup, I understand why people 2nd guess. But I hope to make many new e-buddy's on this site and learn more about computers, and possibly driving/tuning.

Thanks everyone,

Actualy, the XRT is modeled after a Mitsubishi Starion, you should google it. Its practiacaly identical on the outside.
Plus, one of the Devs, I think the modeler? actualy said its modeled after a starion.
I've actualy seen one race ready here in canada, very nice car.

Your supras not bad either.

Automatic transmission.

Boo !!!!!



^ (That is from The Princess Bride, it isn't my grandmother)

Actually auto's run more consistent times at the track, but I would still rather have a 6speed. We are either going with the getrag 6speed transmission or the Th400 platform.

Still haven't decided yet
Quote from illegal :And he can spell.

Yeah, I'm not riding the "hey man i g2g but i ttyl, jus hit me up on aim yo" bandwagon.

Haha
so next is an s2 license with all that money then?

Welcome Would like to see some more piccies of your beast from further back

and w00t @ 300, I think I'll have a bourbon to celebrate (as long as you can find a reason every single day, it's not really alcoholism )
Lovely car, i must say. Only thing that's crap, is the Automatic Transmission




btw: Why everybody is copying my location/replacing the UF1 with something else

Because you're the coolest guy alive, dawg.
Welcome

Damnit, you only have to be 16 in Kentucky to get a permit and 17 for a full license? That's ONE less year away from a full license than it is in NJ..

Like most others, I say the XR is based 99.9% off of the Starion rather than the Supra, but whatever. Oh and in case you didn't already know.. the dash of the XR is taken directly from the 3000GT. So don't freak out and go crazy if you see a 3000 and automatically think you're looking at a real-life incarnation of the XRT like I've done numerous times
WELCOME!!!
Good to see another Supra owner on the fourm. I'm waiting to put a '92 into my name when I get my license, it had a 1JZ swap, with a few goodies added. Truly fun cars, eh?

Is the silly warning message covering up the wing mirror a legal requirement in the states?
I think it is, even Ace Ventura uses it as a joke. 'Warning, ****s may be closer than they appear!'

Basically someone had an accident, sued the manufacturer, now it has a warning sticker. Or at least I assume thats how it went down, considering its America I am probably right.

Oh and welcome to the forum, is your car similar in power and wieght as well as looks?
Isn't it true that you can drive at 14 in Montana?

God I'd love to live there!
