Haven't really done much with the car of late, just regular servicing. Tried a few different oils over the past year. Had been running Edge 5w-30 as I got it cheap at my last job. Tried some Edge 0w-40 which was far to thick for the 3SGE, replaced that with some Takumi 0w-30 which was much better suited. Splashed out on some Mobil1 5w-30 for this round. Can't go wrong with M1. Put some fresh anti-freeze in as I went down the country to the ski fields a while back. Also ran through some genuine toyota D4 injector cleaner, which cleared up a bit of a hesitation I was experiencing.
Had to put two new tyres on the rear. Went with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 to match the 1st gen F1 Asymmetric I already had on the front. Got my moneys worth out of the Bridgestone Potenza RE001. They're good tyres but no comparison the the Goodyears. Also got two 7.5" rims of a JCE15 Gita for the rear so now I have an OE staggered fitment.
Had to replace my NGK Iridium spark plugs as they'd be in for nearly 60K km. I ordered some Denso VK20 Iridium tough plugs in from Japan. Took two month for them to arrive! They should be good for 100K & have a 0.4mm center electrode just like the IK20. I've got more in stock if anyone wants some.

The Bridgestones lasted quiet well on the rear, got about 45K km out of them running -2.5° camber

& for those that don't know I became a dad back in May. Got myself a wee man to teach all about cars when he's a bit older. Fun times.

Been hoarding a few parts of late, just need to fit them now. Bit hard with an 8 month old son taking up most of my spare time.

We now stock TRD/Motul oil at work. Going to use the diff oil & brake fluid. They only do a 5w40 engine oil in TRD but I can get in any other Motul grades. We're going to stock the 10w30 & 5w30 for now & 0w20 for the GT86 in the near future.
Also got some TRD front lower arm bushes. Need to do my rear hubs as well one day. Scored myself a sweet umbrella too :D

The transformation is complete, Motul Ester based fluids in gearbox, diff & now engine
Engine is even smoother & quieter compared to Mobil1 5W-30 I had been running. Oil pressure has increased as well. If you're seeing track time then I'd say this is a must have. Running a WIX XP synthetic media filter as well.

For those of you that didn't know I did an experiment for the lads at Motul NZ, trailing their 75W-140 Gear Competition (TRD) in the gearbox. It wasn't much fun on a cold winters morning but now that summer is here it's not much different to 75W-90. I have driven a TTE S/C IS200 & RS200 which we put Gear300 75W-90 in at work & they shift like a hot knife through butter. I will be going back to Gear300 before winter. If you're building a track day car then the 75W-140 is worth a look or you could do a 50/50 blend with 75W-90
