    Well, they could have marked it as "Lexus". They just choose not to because its a waste of money making 2 seperate items just because of the name. So they just reused the toyota ones. Plus, the toyota ones were originally made for the car anyways

    There is no chassis difference between the JDM and USDM Toyota Soarers/Lexus SC3/400s. Only difference is in the steering wheel location, dash cluster, and options offered. The soarers came with digital dashboards that also used to burn out.

    fianlly someone noticed it!

    and yes thanks, i got full hi res body designs, I also got chassis designs (need fully optimising on ideas yet) and engine layout stuff and suspension stuff but i ain't putting them up on here!!! it is my baby and one day i will have the time and place to build it.

    Preliminary engines are single car engine (currently using the Honda Civic type-R engine for design) and twin motorbike engines (bored out and with turbos so each tuned to between 300 and 400 bhp) for less weight.

    I like the motorbike engined one but it would be expensive due to the engines costing about 5K each + a 10K engine management/linking system! There is also an engine developed by joining two motorbike engines together to form a silly powerful and tiny V8.

    I will stick pic of the other layout up (engine behind the driver not mid engined between the driver and front wheels) but i am the laptop so i have no images on here.

    Buidling my own car is my long-term porject in life. When you actually do some research you realise it isn't that hard. I have used a lot of aircraft and race-car stuff which makes fabrication and modification easier. And I kind of figured iw ould put my degree and composites to some use other than work.
