Drivetrain upgrade options?

Post by Kenny727 » Sun Aug 09, 2015 3:13 am

82 SR-5.
Id love to get a LSD but does it only come in a GTS?
I heard the automatics had better gears? I don't know if he meant rear end or what.
where can I find gears for these cars?
Whats recomended for a daily driver and daily racer set up?
Im on high way a lot, but I feel like I have about roughly 2-3000 RPM.

If theres no way to change gears can I use an ae86 or supra rear end?
I know te72 chassis is almost the same as ae86..
Also ae86 upgrade to supra.
Does anyone know about this?
I'm looking for pretty direct bolt on.
Thanks everyone!
