Get ready for it chaps my manual beast has landed. I've spent all weekend swapping over the seats for new better condition leather and ripping out all the dodgy jap wiring and fitting a short shifter kit and sorting out partially the mess that was the centre console and handrake. Not much more work and she will be ready to go on show :)

PS I've been to that Milton Keynes track fabulous and bloomin fast cart track that is. Ya had good days weather for it :)

Great Pictures and a great day,dont know where the time went before we knew it it was 3pm :ohmy:

Bri,yea is a really great track shame that there was a few corners that was very very slippery that had not dried out.By heck them twin engine karts fly along :driving:

They must have had a fair few karts to repair after the race,people flying off on all the slippery corners :D

Looking forward to doing karting again :)

thanks Paul for sorting the day out and it was good to meet everyone.

The major difference Peter is the engine mate,

The GS has a straight 6 N/A 3.0 Ltre, (not sure of the BHP)

The Aristo TT has a MK IV Straight 6 Twin Turbo N/A 3.0 Ltre, (280 - 320 BHP)

Just a bit more than the GS's 220 bhp then, Cheers Paul

Not nessa celery. The aristo is also made in japan in 3.0 N/A and 4.3 N/A and by the looks of the list on the auction board its also made in a 4wd (i think thats the 4.3 version is 4wd) The 2jz-gte engine was not however put into the GS over here. I think this is to do with the same legislation they had to stop selling the supra in the UK because of.
