Yesturday i found out that Most of the MR-S's (spyders) use the 4-wheel electornic steering system. Is this true? And (if n e one knows) what years did that system came on the SW20's?

as far as I know, it never did.
I am pretty sure the MR-S doesnt have 4 wheel steering....it would be a huge suprise to me if it did.

absolutely false, the latest mr-s is rack and pinion with power assist, why in the world would an mr2 need 4-wheel steering? this isn't a 30ft long truck, the turn radius is pretty good as it is, and in my sdub i can u-turn in streets most cars cant. where did you "find" this false information?

The MRS does not have 4 wheel steering. But does have eletronic powersteering. So you are partially right. It is electronic but only the front wheels.

Then he needs to show us the specs on some of these super secret MR2s cause no one is seen one of these.

He might be talking about EBD, Electronic Brake distribution, Not sure if Toyota has used the system but Honda has(MRs owners might be able to verify), It helps control each wheels rotation speed using senors in the ABS. This system might be good, might be bad turning fast corners, Never took a honda out racing(never saw a point :smile: )
