  1. 3 spoke vs. teddy bear

    I think the gen7 wheels work even better on the 4 than the 5 because the 4 is a more angular car,the 5 is a rounder softer look so the thinner spiky look of the 7 alloys doesnt look quite as good IMO,but they do look ok on the 5.
  2. 3 spoke vs. teddy bear

    Im not a huge fan of the 3 spokes myself,but i have seen them put on a variety of gens with differing success
  3. 3 spoke vs. teddy bear

    A lot of people use the 3 spokes as a track option,due to the lightness and at times the ease of availability,but conversely due to this i reckon they will be getting harder to get hold of..
  4. Removing a small ding

    if youre going to JAE theres a guy who goes round the stands who does a corking job for very good prices if you can live with it for a bit.mind you its a new venue this year but must be a good earner for him so I would guess he'll be there mate
  5. What came in the Post Today?

    Fidanza lightened flywheel arrived this week,and today an S54 gearbox with LSD was dropped off at Beks lab for me as well to go onto my Beams gen4
  6. Goodwood FOS

    just been watching some stuff on SkySportsNews,including the World record on two wheels stunt in the Nismo nissan Juke.The mentalist
  7. you can see the evolution from gen3 to the gen4 in those pics.More so than the difference between gen4+5.
  8. As this is in the General area,i've edited your swearies,i still think we get the idea of your anger/frustration though. Ive sworn a blue streak at my cars over the years thats for damn sure.They can be a real pig at times cant they.Have a beer or two,take a step back and then come back to it to see if its still worth your time to get the car how you want it,or indeed move it on. Hope you dont,but its not my money..
  9. Did you go for the cheap cylinder or the genuine one
  10. alloy rad vs oem rad.........which one to fit?

    For what its worth,I had a nearly newish rad in my gen 4,when we fitted the Beams we retained it..,we were doing away with the A/C to be fair,meaning there was now nothing in front of the rad so that increased air flow to the rad itself anyway.I also have a lower temp opening thermostat fitted.ive driven the car pretty damn hard at times and also spent time in traffic on way to JAE etc etc and the temp has barely moved from normal,somewhere just under halfway on my gauge.
  11. Gen 5 Cabriolet

    Sounds nice.Need to ensure the 4ws works as it should,the red 4ws light should stay off on the dash.There is a selector also so that when the car is put in reverse the rear wheels automatically realign themselves straight for ease of reversing.you can stay in 4ws going backwards but the first time you do it the neighbours think youre drunk :lol:its a bit weird.at low speeds the front and rears turn opposite so itll turn like a london taxi.at higher speeds the wheels 'crab' instead.
  12. Popped this General Discussion Paul,you might get more views/info on this ECU than in the sale bit,so you can decide if its worth keeping hold of or put it back up for sale fella.
  13. Good samariton offer declined but beware.... :(

    As it says S54 on the plate,i assume its still the same box that came with LSD on the other SS cars ,but without the LSD
  14. What came in the Post Today?

    big box containing a bag of 48 microfibre towels from Amazon,should keep me going.they're not bad quality really
  15. Would like to be a GT4 owner again

    Someone's mentioned a 165,hallelujah! the car that started it all off.Mind you,you've got to find one first.A good one.First 4wd rally derived Celica in the UK...first UK car to have a catalytic converter.Although most people now spend their time getting rid of it How about one like Steve G's (GT4-play) 'Betsy'.. we've mentioned a lot about the 185 v 205,how about the 205 taking on Steve's 165? the 165 might be tuned a little bit....
  16. A visit to Bek's lab,upgraded front brakes to ST182 calipers,MTEC discs,Ferodo DS2500 pads and HEL lines then came home, gave it a good wash and tucked it under its snug cover as its going to piddle down
  17. Would like to be a GT4 owner again

    This topic is re-opened after 30 minutes of deleting unwanted posts.Thanks for that :rolleyes: Some posts had to be deleted to make the thread flow into some sort of sense.So no moaning if yours was deleted,its a bit of a domino effect. Keep it on topic please!Its not fair on wintersun if it gets closed.No posts mentioning the previous chuff or we'll go round in circles and i want a beer now. Aaaaaand.....go.
