    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    Ballsy. I like it

    If I wasn't so stuck on running A/C I'd definitely buy one. Nice piece Efrain.

    Buy a 2J?

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    How's your engine being supported currently? Asking for a friend.

    Wow really informative build thread. Real game changer.

    6-piston brakes look badass, but yeah, if you're going to run 225s, super pointless. I have the z32's and I can lock them up on demand, so I know anything bigger would be for looks. Unless brake fade during circuit racing is a concern. Nonetheless, nice work!

    Did having it balanced alleviate any vibrations for you?

    Gordo, I agree to your point about throttle dependent vibration being due to poor rear end setup which is why I installed a different differential, but it maintained the same noise. Maybe they both have poor backlash? i am running an XM one-piece, but it is an older unit from back when they subbed out the driveshafts to their local driveshaft shop. It has the other shop’s sticker on it. Haha

    Thanks guys. I'm relieved to hear the vibration is more common than I thought. Still a bummer that it may be just an inherent characteristic of the car. Especially since Xcessive said their Cressidas don't report similar vibrations. Hmmm. If anyone is interested in the knuckles, I found the PN (45611-43010 & 45612-43010) on this site. Looks like $45 ea.: https://jp-carparts.com/toyota/partlist.php?maker=toyota&type=333110&cartype=15&fig=4505 Also appears you might be able to buy from RHD Japan: https://www.rhdjapan.com/oem-public-page?brand=Toyota&partnumber=45612-43010

    Solid numbers man. Nice setup

    Thanks guys! It feels very nice, but I’m still experiencing this throttle input dependent vibration at highway speeds. At 70mph if I slightly let off the throttle between acceleration and complete coast, I get a noise/vibration that sounds like there is some play in the driveline. I changed the diff out thinking the lash was loose, but nothing changed. I did the bearings and ball joints and although it’s smoother, it still makes the noise. The driveshaft U-joints are good and I just installed the Xcessive trans mount in effort to eliminate the noise. i may take the driveshaft to get rebalanced, but I’m kind of reaching at this point. Everything is tight from a bolt and part perspective. also sort of unrelated, but the car has always vibrated quite a bit over 100mph and lots of vibration at 120mph. I can’t imagine what it would do if I took it to 140+ lol. Maybe it’s a 30 year old car thing? But that seems off since literally everything has been replaced and it still does it. @Gordo I believe the chassis is YXS10. The knuckles are still sold new from Toyota in Japan. This website seems like a cool place to get OEM parts from Japan. I haven't used it yet. https://jp-carparts.com/

    Not much to update honestly. Just been driving the car. I did drive my car to California and stopped at Mooneyes. My friend from Japan told me that many x81 drifters like to use Toyota Crown Comfort Taxi steering knuckles as they share the same suspension as an x8, but are engineered to have tighter turning in narrow Japanese streets. He shipped me a pair, I'm excited to try something factory instead of a backyard cut n shut or $225 knuckles from Xcessive. Taxi Left, Cressida Right. They aren't zero ackerman knuckles, so nothing too aggressive, but should still be good for a little more angle while maintaining drivability. Also got in contact with this guy in Kuwait selling Cressida parts and scored this dash pocket to replace the useless satellite radio control panel. Scored this spare MK3 LSD for $40. Pretty uncommon to find under $250 these days, so I had to scoop. Developed intermittent starter issues. In fear of being stranded, I got this genuine remanufactured starter. Hopefully this is more reliable than that Duralast crap. I'm just happy that it's not like other remanufactured parts that are covered in 6 layers of silver paint in attempt to bury the fact that it's still a piece of shit. Wheel bearing and Ball joint replacement time. Thanks to Urrik and JZXGibbs for doing the leg work, I installed the Tacoma Front UCA ball joints on my RUCAs with slight modification to the arm. Wheel bearing out. New Bearing in. I hated the rusty colored rotor hats, so I painted them Project Mu blue for max JDM cred. Also the zerk fittings on the ball joints are really convenient.

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    I wish there were local places that had major brand racing seats on display that a consumer can try out before dropping $800-1500 on a seat that may or may not be the appropriate size. lol

    The pic of you almost kind of three-wheeling is rad. Reminds me of the drop at Nikko Circuit.
