    Did a Marulan day back in 2010...it just occurred to me, that the Potenzas RE001 i bought lasted 6 years! Added those and Enkei Wheels and Fujitsubo Wagolis axel back in 2010





    Added Tein S-STech Springs after that track day


    Quite liked the Enkei Barrels



    SSRs no good lol



    16" SSR looked good!


    Fitted a Cusco strut bar


    Work Equip 01 (Door damaged from Station!)



    Fast Forward to 2016.
    The Potenzas were getting old, so now they have been upgraded to Hankook RS-3
    Stock Shocks were starting to get really stiff, and knocking, one rear was leaking, so naturally time for an upgrade.
    Ohlins PCV



    Found a 2NZ-FE (1.3 Vitz motor) with a Blitz Supercharger on it in Japan...

    2 days later, Supercharger is bolted on mine!

    Inspriation:
    Jimze Vitz RS

      As per my thread in the Force Induction section, it desperatly needed some sort of ECU, so got the E-Manage Ultimate!

      Also these "ultrararecostjustasmuchasthecar" trd gauges been sitting in the garage for years for the Supra, but never went on!

      Another fight at the station!


      Sick Bruh!

        When the little Chimp got hit, I didn't notice they hit the headlight too (Which were refurbed a week before grr!), Leaving a big gap between the bar and the light.



        So Decided to remove the car (Wanted to try that lip on too) and took the headlight out to see what the go is

        Found the Culprit, the bracket had snapped

        Improvisation!


        Its not 100% but its alot better


        And the lip! Also been in the garage for about 5 years...Genuine option lip. Was very lucky that Toyota already marked the holes out, so literally took me 10 minutes! Woo

        Done! 8 bolts!

        Need to get the bar and lip sprayed now

              So at the moment, the old Cusco camber tops are pretty worn and noisy, so ordered in some new ones.


              The little guy made a stout 76fwkw, stock makes 52fwkw


              A new clutch is required, so an Exedy HD has been ordered too.

              Next will be some decent rotors and pads/brake fluid, then I can hit Wakefield and have some fun!!

                          HAHA, this is pretty much what im looking into ATM, borrowed no pics mums echo since my car broke down and shopping for new car. fuel a week dropped from 75$ every 4 days to 31$ every 7 days. fell in love with the little 1.5 manual buzz box

                          So currently looking for one.

                          will follow this that is for sure.

                            Yeah, she runs on fumes, even with the SC on! I can also beat a new Mazda 3 SP25 haha

                            They are getting popular now for the "Nugget Nationals" a group run in Melbourne! Couple doing 1.46 at Winton with just suspension boltons (Not sure how fast that is in comparison)
