    Awesome, fuck I love a silly little hatch and they are a different type of fun (eg the comment above about beating a Mazda 3 SP25, you can laugh your arse off having a crack against just about anything while keeping speeds etc semi sane....plus corners)

    I have to admit I went and looked at what they are worth and easily find something under a grand that would be some cheap fun.

              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)

              Yeah been thinking about doing the nugget nationals while my big cars are off the road. but trying to find a Sportivo echo for the right price and not more then a B16/B18/B20 Honda is making it hard.

                I'm actually pretty impressed by the Echo/Yaris, can't bloody kill them. My youngest sister, nopics, had one for a little while, managed to do 40,000km in less than a year in it, she worked on a couple of stations in western QLD. Only went in for a service after she damaged the sump on the way home from a B&S ball in it, ran over a wombat that had just killed a Commodore ute. She sold it to a friend of hers who managed to write it off on a camel a few years ago.

                  Always had a soft spot for these cheerful little things.

                  They were still fairly new when I did my apprenticeship with Toyota. Was fun flogging the pisser out of them. Will look into the Nugget Nationals. Have a '98 Polo here that needs reporposing from it's current lawn ornament duties.

                    The newsagent in town had one that they used for delivering the papers to properties out of town. Went through 2 radiator/condesner/fan assemblies, 3 drivers' seat frames (because driver was a 140kg ape), lower control arms, hubs, repaired floorpan when the seat mounts gave way. My god that thing had a hard life.

                        its different, Honda Jazz seem to be much more popular to mod here, but they look like a little bus.

                        Yeah very, a B16 Civic is heaps of fun and reliable...i only did this because I already had one haha...Even an EP82 is awesome (my first car in 1999)

                          Wholllly Mosessss!!!

                          The kit came with a Top Fuel 1000 Filter kit, but the filter was rank....never fitted obviously. We ran the car without filter and there was no difference in performance...

                          I was a bit dissapointed in the quietness of the supercharger...read that it needs a filter kit to amplify....

                          Went and bought a K&N filter to suit...got it today..and fitted it within 10 minutes....Fackkk me....its probably sucking in hot air and loosing power but the sound....what a difference hahhaa


                          The Top Fuel kit


                          New K&N and rusty ass filter


                          Engine bay bling..dont mind the wiring over the right...thats the wires for the oil temp and water temp gauge....need to find the sandwich plate for the oil and the thing that sits in the hose for water!
