KCA 363 Toyota
Corolla Roll Center Adjusters
|Lowering your AE86 helps with both appearance
and performance but to optimize its' handling,
the suspension geometry must also be altered
as you lower it. Like many older MacPherson
Strut designed cars with shorter front
lower control arms, the more you lower
the AE86, the more you affect the suspension
geometry. With the AE86, lowering can
drastically change the front role center.
To correct the front changes in geometry
from lowering, Whiteline have introduced
the Roll Center Adjustment kit (KCA363).
A beautiful gold anodized billet aluminum
spacer, these components help to re-align
the front lower control arms back to proper
specs once your AE86 has been lowered.
Simply fitted between the top of the front
lower control arm and the bottom of the
front strut, this spacer will help to
re-align your roll center after lowering

KPR010 Toyota Corolla
Adjustable Lateral Rod Arm
In the rear the stock panhard rod or lateral
rod will push your rear end off center if
left untouched. To fix this an adjustable
rod is needed that can correctly center your
rear end. Whiteline's panhard rod (KPR010)
fits the bill perfectly. The adjustability
allows for different variances of lowering
and adjustability, perfect for those that
run lowering springs or adjustable coil-overs,
and need the adjustment. Fitted with Super
Pro polyurethane bushings, these beefy bars
make for a nice addition to your Corolla.

AE86 Adjustable Swaybars
roll center of your car was discussed above,
but what about just plain chassis roll ? During
spirited street driving, track racing, or
auto-x,the amount of body roll your car has
can be very detrimental to the speed you are
able to carry into, through and out of corners,
slowing your overall lap times. The weight
of your car leaning onto one side puts a great
amount of stresses on that side's suspension
components and tires, and does not allow the
inside tires to take it's share of the cornering
loads. Plain and simple, a floppy car does
not handle nice, and does not instill any
confidence in the driver.
To really beef up your suspension and to
greatly improve lateral grip we highly recommend
Whiteline's adjustable front and rear anti-sway
bars. Whiteline's adjustable sway bars are
extremely popular with our Nissan 240SX and
Subaru Impreza and WRX customers, and we are
very excited to offer them to the Toyota AE86
Adding adjustable swaybars is one of our
first recommendations, as the differences
before and after are like night and day. The
gains alone of a sway bar are tremendous with
the most common response being "this
is how the car SHOULD be". For the AE86
we offer 4 WAY adjustable front and rear bars
which come with the proper links to correctly
install them. Adjustability is so critical
to a car's overall state of suspension tuning,
allowing the owner to custom set up his ride
to his needs and desires. Want a car with
more oversteer for drift - you can quickly
stiffen up the rear bar for effortless slide
action. Like to soften up and gain more bite
on rainy or slick days, simply soften up your
swaybars for increased bite in slick condition.
Going track racing
dial in a little
more understeer to help control the slides
at high speeds and make the car less nervous
at triple digit speeds. With 4 adjustment
holes per side, the ability to fine-tune your
AE86's swaybar rivals full race swaybars.
Worldwide, Whiteline adjustable swaybars
are becoming THE swaybar to run, and PDM is
very pleased to be stocking these superior
order, non-stocked item.

NGK Spark Plug Wires
When a spark plug fires, it
creates a great deal of radio frequency interference
(RFI). Uncontrolled, this can show up as static
in the radio or other electronic devices,
or much more seriously, in electronic ignitions,
fuel injection, and engine management systems.
This interference with EFI and engine management
systems can cause "cross talk" between
wiring harnesses resulting in poor running,
misfiring and decreased performance.
NGK Resistor Spark Plug Wire
Sets utilize a construction method known as
"variable pitch" wire winding to
create resistance to radio frequency interference.
The variable pitch winding (loose/tight/loose)
provides suppression throughout a very wide
range by "scrambling" and breaking
up the electrical waves radiated by the firing
of the spark plugs.

Sets are built to meet stringent OEM
tolerances for a variety of import
NGK Iridium IX Plugs
is a silver-white precious metal that is among
the densest materials on earth. Since
it’s so dense, it will outlast Platinum
and Copper plugs. Plus this ultra-
hard material also enables the plug center
electrode to be 25% narrower than Platinum,
and 75% narrower than conventional nickel
electrodes, which requires less voltage to
spark, and delivers increased burn efficiency,
sparks at leaner air/fuel mixtures, and
produces better gas mileage and higher horsepower.
Iridium plugs are a must for turbocharged
and high compression or high revving
NTK Oxygen Sensor
O2 sensors, or Oxygen
Sensors, are used in your ae86 Corolla
to help control the fuel and ignition
system, to allow proper fuel mixture
for idle, performance and fuel mileage.
O2 sensors are located in your exhaust
manifold, and monitor the amount of
Oxygen in your exhaust gases, which
in turn indicate the fuel mixture. O2
sensors send signals to the computer,
which then adjusts timing and fuel delivery.
Most cars are very sensitive to proper
O2 sensor function, and without an O2
sensor, these cars will idle erratically,
run excessively rich, and give poor
performance and mileage. Also an improperly
working O2 sensor will plug up your
catalytic converter causing it to smell
like rotten eggs (and give very poor
performance). O2 sensors DO plug up,
and wear out over time, and we strongly
recommend you change your O2 sensor
once a year.
PDM Racing is now stocking extreme performance Power Slot rotors for the Corolla AE86.
Excessive heat from heavy braking can cause resins in your brake pads to vaporize, or
"outgas". Also as the brake pad wears, the used friction material turns into a fine
dust. This layer of gas and excess brake material builds up to create a boundary of
carp between your rotor and brake pad, which decreases braking performance.
Why should you upgrade to slotted rotors?
Power Slot's exclusive "Vac-U-Slots" are machined into the rotor which helps to
evacuate these gases and dust, to shed heat and to keep the brake pad surface clean.
This compliments your pad and rotor surface by "wiping" it clean for better, more
consistant braking. In addition, during wet conditions, these slots help to push the
water off the braking surface for better stopping power. (slotted rotors were
originally engineered for rain racing).
Furthermore, these slots are machined exactly to the minimum rotor thickness.
This will indicate that it's time to replace your rotors once the slots are no
PDM is pleased to be offering our Toyota customers these high quality replacement rotors.
Performance Brake Pads
Generic pads are for generic drivers. If
your car is driven in a manner that doesn't
test the limits, then generic pads may be
fine. If you're here, you're likely not a
generic driver! We can set you up with pads
to suit your driving. From aggressive street
pads to road racing compounds, we have the
right brake pad for your car and driving style.
HPS - High Performance Street
Hawk Performance HPS compound provides advanced

PDM Racing lately in our street
and racing Corollas, and have found the Hawk
HPS pads an excellent overall
pad for street and auto-x use.
Porterfield R4S Pads
PDM is now stocking super high performance Porterfield R4S pads for your Toyota Corolla
AE86. If you are doing track days, serious solo 1 or solo 2, you MUST run race pads to
ensure solid pedal feel and superior braking all session long. Combined with race fluid and
braided lines, race pads are the key element to make sure your AE86 has the stopping power
to last. These Porterfield pads are an ultimate street/trackday pad for your Corolla short
of going to full race pads.
PDM Racing Brakestop Street Legal Toyota Corolla AE86 Brake Line Kits
In the past we've bought and sold DOT brake line kits from suppliers like Russell and Goodridge; however, we constantly were fighting manufacturer back-orders and lee times which frustrated the hell out of the owner. To solve this problem we purchased Western Canada's only Brakequip brakeline manufacturing machine and now mafacture our own DOT stainless brake lines in house. What this has given PDM the ability to do is to custom make DOT Stainless brakelines for most vehicle applications.
For the ultimate in braking
performance, nothing beats PDM Brakestop
pre-assembled, direct bolt-on DOT Legal
Brake Line Kits. These brake lines meet
the strict guidelines of the D.O.T. MVSS-106
requirements for street driven vehicles
and are legal in all 50 states. Brakestop
Brake Line Kits feature stainless steel
braided hose with zinc plated fittings assembled
for installation convenience. Replacement
of original Toyota rubber lines with Brakestop
brake lines increases braking performance
and reduces brake pedal travel due to the
elimination of hose expansion common to
the factory Toyota rubber lines.
PDM Brakestop AE86 5 line Stainless DOT Brakeline kits
PDM Brakestop Brakeline kits are race-bred brakelines constructed from the finest hose, consisting of a PTFE inner liner and outer stainless steel overbraid. All lines are also covered with protective nylon covering.
Replacing your AE86's old, worn and somewhat dangerous stock rubber lines with this 5 line kit will dramatically eliminate sponginess under heavy braking, increase braking efficiency, and they are fully abrasion and corrosion resistant.
Fully DOT certified, these lines are a huge improvement to the stock 15+ year old brakelines.
