Hello
now on my 3rd Celica, its an ST182, mainly to be used for a bit of fun on track days etc.
my 1st was a gen 6, AT200 which my gf now owns. As I bought an ST185, which i blew the head gasket on and had to sell on a couple of years ago.
Anyway, hello Smile

Shame about the ST185, something i have always wanted.

Anyway, welcome and enjoy your stay,

Jamie

Welcome, just out of interest, what is the ST182 compared like to the AT200? I know they have different engines but i was wondering about handling.

would also love to see some photos Cool

Both cars handle really well to be honest, the AT200 is obviously slower, but they both have KYB shocks, Eibachsprings, front and rear strut braces, and the 182 has front and rear ARBs.
The AT200 will never be taken out on track though but on the road is a great car to drive.

Bonnet has been lifted at the back, supposedly helps air flow, I just take the advice from friends in the know Very Happy
