Finally Bought A New Car!...

Recommended Posts

What can i say.. i could not find a decent ST185 and the ST205 was over my budget so i defected to the dark side of the MR2 Tubby!... :ph34r:

1994 Toyota MR2 GTS T-bar Turbo...

0-60 - 5.2 sec and a top end of about 155mph... :zee:

ohh.. and its a bloody twitchy thing round bends or even in a straight line when its just a little damp!..

I chased a RS4 today but as soon as it came to a S-bend... i had to let off anf he flew round...

Nice car B)

0-60 - 5.2 sec and a top end of about 155mph...

4.5mm drill + zener diode will soon improve things there :blink:

If you mean the steering is light / sensitive, may be a consequence of speedo conversion.

Power steering is electric and the amount of assistance should reduce with speed.

If the steering ecu is seeing the 'converted' speed, you may be getting too much assistance.

Enjoy your tubby - You wanna be joining imoc too now :driving:

I love SW20s!!!

I've owned two of them in the past, a rev2 and a rev5 - very nice motors.

I'm always tempted to buy another. They are so easy to mod so if I do get another it'll probably end up just being a weekend toy.

I see you've already joined the mr2oc, try joining imoc-uk too - lots of like-minded people on there (I'm still a member even though I sold my last MR2 nearly a year ago!).
