  1. Sorry to hear of your troubles, and that the fate of the SR is sealed. Dibs on a few bits?
  2. Make a start, be good to see it how it is, and to document progress. The best colour too...... ;-)
  3. No you wouldn't, just prepare the car to the regs for whichever class you want to run in, and thats it. Drivers of all shapes, sizes, ages and sexes in the championship. I'm hardly slim and I have done ok for my experience and what I'm driving. Faster times than modified Glanza Turbo and Celica GT4 amongst others at the last round. Not bad for an old 109bhp shopping trolley in Street class, driven by an overweight novice....... Just a thought, but a valid one I reckon.
  4. Buy it, and run it in the Toyota Sprint Series next year ;-)

    Help Please !

    The bushes (that it sounds like you are talking about) are not normally available readily. You will need to do some shopping around. Fensport can supply Super Pro poly bushes for the arms if you speak to them, and they can be replaced either DIY if you have the right sort of tools (available from Screwfix/Machinemart etc), or by a decent mechanic for a price less than £180+VAT. That price sounds like a new arm with bushes complete, or bumped up to cover the possible fiddly nature of the work on an 'older' car. I would personally replace the bushes with poly uprated versions, as for the price,
  6. There is a 'Wanted' forum that you could try posting your list of parts on. As for pics of spats fitted to 'standard' E12 models, check out Ant182's thread on here on his Colour Collection, that has rear spats fitted to the rear bumper, I take it that they are what you are thinking of?
  7. Steven. Link/details for this Green car please?
  8. I feel your pain. This is what I have come up against nearly every step of the way, and got ever increasingly wound up because of it. Came close to throwing in the towel, wanted to forget it completely and turn to Gardening, Cycling or even Hill Walking as a hobby/interest. But. That's the thing you see. Because parts are hard to source for these, nobody bothers, and as such they get left alone and are a rare sight, unloved and unrecognised. Let the world and his dog fly around in modded Civics etc, and I'll batter B-roads and surprise many in my below-radar 'Grandad-mobile'. A few bikers over
  9. Thanks! I've managed (just....) to transfer the times from my Corolla runs onto my thread if you want to have a look out of interest.
  10. I'd just got the car, and it was running with half a tank of fuel, a boot full of stuff and less than glamorous rubber on its original 14" rims. I hadn't changed anything from the day I bought it.

  11. After some banter on Phatali's thread with regards to Drag Racing at York Raceway, I managed to dig out my results from running there some time ago. Just on with trying to sort a Cut & Paste onto here......
  12. Evening all! Bit of a catch up since last update...... Croft. Latest round of the Toyota Sprint Series this year. My local circuit, and the 2nd time that I've managed to race there now. Similar, if slightly longer layout to last season, so times can't really be compared. We got to run about 7/8th's of the circuit as is, with the addition of an elongated chicane placed on the approach to Tower Bend. My car runs in Class D - Street. This was the 'lowest' class featured at this round, and as such, I wasn't expecting to do too well in respect to overall times. Main 'battle' if you will would be ag
