i wouldn't imagine so....the type r was made for more of a sports/racing
car.....ie lighter is better....aero roof is heavier due to extra
strengthening.....

maybe im wrong tho ;-)

I believe not.

Although in japan sometimes 'unusual' combos exist - as just about anything
could be custom ordered for a price.

Would be a surprise since the R was a low cost low weight model, and the targa
increases both.

you cant really compare one cars weight to another unless they are weighed
on the same set of scales. i think we should all go to a weighing place one
day to find out.....

that's a good idea actually, i think there would b a few members that would
b curious to see what their cars weigh, could make it a cruise thing with
food sumwhere and con the weighing station into letting us weigh our cars :P

It'd be interesting to know where they took the weight from as mine is
typical NZ new with no electric seats etc. 170kgs is alot - maybe 1jz is
alot lighter than the 7M? but not 170kgs.

might be a difference in the sound deadening. the type R might have had
less. that does equate to quite a bit of a cars extra weight.

Well my JZA70-R weighed in at 1650 with 3/4 tank with myself (100ish-kg :P
and a mate 70-80kg)

so 1450kg is looking like a normalish figure for them?

If someone can supply me with an example Frame/Chassis Number (NOT the model
number) then I can work it out. Need a known one to start with.

That would mean the R is 40-50kg's lighter than a MKIV. Impressive given the
MKIV was designed with lots of weight saving development.

Right, there were at least 19325 chassis numbers assigned to R Type JZ's, so
I highly doubt that there were only 500 made. Production started in August
1990 and went on til Dec 92, maybe Jan93.

I suspect the magazine article either refers to, or is mistaken with, the
Group-A MA70 that there were definitely only 500 of.

Re: type R question   2003-09-08 13:36:00 <Nick Clewer>
That is pretty impressive. I've just converted my MA71 to a JZA70 so I
wouldn't mind getting the cars weight down a couple of hundred kg.

So far I have ripped out the Tems control and wiring, rear speaker boxes are
gone. I have to change my seats but I have a Sparco Evo and a JZA70 Recaro
ready to go. Everything else like the x-member, wishbones etc are all the
same between my JZA70-R cut and my chassis.

Ok so the 150kg's less weight from what i can gather is:
Seats,
Maybe sound deadening,
oh and of course the engine.

Surely these items to not make up the 150kg's difference!!!

What was the weight of that electrically adjustable seat you were looking
to ship Cully? they are NOT light from memory. This would be 90% of the
saving.

Remember, 150kg is from a pretty informal weight comparison.

No ABS or cruise control or TEMS from memory? that would make a rather
marginal weight saving, maybe a few kilos if they bothered removing ALL
the associated equipment and mounts, etc.

I suspect the 1JZ is a little lighter than the 7M, but not a lot.

I would really be surprised if the cars in 'full' trim were 150kg
different, unless you added a targa to the non-R

Re: type R question   2003-09-08 18:10:00 <Nick Clewer>
Also the R's have Bilstein Suspension (alittle less weight than the stock
toyo ones) yeah and as you said no Tems or cruise control. The cruise
control alone weighed in at 8kg when I took all that out of my car. The
Drivers seats weighs 48kg. Passenger alittle less. So yeah there is ALOT of
weight to be saved. A friend has ripped out his interior, installed a half
cage and installed a couple of 3kg Sparco Evo seats with a 2JZGTE and 6 spd,
it freaking moves! He will be weighing is soon so it should be interesting
to see if he is below 1410kg.

As Stuart has pointed out, the (R) was the 'pay for the options' version.
Yes it has recaro's and a sports wheel. Fantastic.

Interestingly for the MT SRS airbag was not an option.

My 7MGTE manual has basic seats so forget the electrics, doesn't have ABS
does have TEMS & weighs 1580kgs + - 5kgs with about qtr tank of gas & no
one in it. So it should be a reasonable comparison with a manual type R
(except for tems maybe). Being NZ new it did have the full std mag which
weighs more than the skinny jap spare.

Re: type R question   2003-09-08 20:43:00 <J Walker>
I think this is the mindless rabble (excuse my bluntness) that a list sub was speaking of in earlier posts ('Pointless posts').
Let's note that the attached email, which could have gone directly to the intended recipient, took 5kb out of everyone's (I refer to those who download mail) bandwidth. It adds up. It wouldn't be so bad having pong style back-and-forth conversations (I think these are most enlightening as it allows a chance for everyone to respond to everyone else's reply) if it weren't for, sometimes literally pages, of >, Supra Club of New Zealand, and http://www.supras.org.nz. footers from 9+ replies.
Pointless information. I'll admit that I even sometimes omit to trim and be conservative with what I send, but I do make a concerted effort to remove old replies and footers! I have left the below attached to show the basic content of at least 3 emails I have recieved, that did not need to be posted to the list. At all. I mean hey feel free to shoot me down, freedom of speech and all, but recieving 3 emails one day with people having trouble etc etc and the next day having 27 messages that sometimes largely consist of material suited to IRC. Cully, what's the average weekly volume of mail the server spits out?

Jonathan

I disagree. The recent interest in the Type R has been most interesting in that it seems to have been a bit of a mystery machine cf more popular GA & MA series. My computer is an old clunker & seems to handle the volume ok. Can't you just delete all the previous related emails & if interested keep the last relevant email?.

Actually, I think the GT was the pay for the options version, the R was no
options avalable model (but recaro and momo thrown in), the GT had 'pay for
more' options available, and the GT Limited was 'it's all thrown' in model,
but targa was still optional there even.

Toyota didn't have airbags back when they designed these models, which is why
it did not appear until the Mk.4 - airbags actually require quite a lot of
design allowance, including a different dash structural design, and a quite
different sensor package.

Just to point out - the 'Type-R' is just an sub-variant of the MA70, just like
a GT or GT Limited - no real structural changes at all.

Yes it did get answered, obviously you missed it amongst the crowd of

No, no aero roofs.

Stuart, not according to my interpretation of the Toyota brochure I have.
The MT (R) version appears to have the least options available with the AT
having a number of options.

And SRS is mentioned. Perhaps if someone in the group can translate the half I
have (the first page was corrupt on my CDR) then this could be clarified.

My (standard) JZA70 aeroroof (non 'R') weighed 1650 with me (76kg) and a full tank of gas.

Mate's standard GA70 fixed roof with same driver/gas weighed 1550 kg.
