  1. Have you tried rare rims, Rota stockists they have a lot of bronze wheels in many styles
  2. These wheels are 6.2kg in this size Because I picked up a wheel at random just to check caliper clearance, that wheel went on the other side when I put them on at the track,I always double check lol
  3. Mine are 15”, use them for track wheels on my Civic, stupidly light even with tyres on. I use Japan Racing JR7 for road, there lightweight as well.
  4. I got my Prorace 1.2’s from Demon Tweeks through eBay, keep an eye on there as occasionally they have big discounts. Mine should of been £650 got them for £350.
  5. It’s 220bhp no proof but feels like it cos it pulls like a train
  6. Pilot Sports generally aren’t much more expensive then F1’s so I would go for the Michelin’s given the choice. Iv got the Pilot Sport 3’s on the Civic at the moment, can’t fault them but 4’s are even better, had them on my old Impreza and are the best road tyre Iv ever used.
  7. Pilot Sports are the one for dry and wet weather, Eagle F1’s are also good. If it is wet then don’t use AR1’s would be my advice
  8. There probably won’t be a huge difference in price of tyres as 17” is more common than 16” Another thing for the list is to check your drive/fan belt, mine was squeaking a bit on my daily Yaris, just changed it today..... Caught in time
  9. My dad had this done to a shogun that he used to own, we even got it on cctv of them nicking it, less than 2 minutes from the car pulling up to driving off. There was a spate of cat converter thefts on 4x4’s in our area at the time, 5 got done in one street in one night
  10. Another option is to put it on axel stands if you’ve already got some, saves buying cradles
  11. When mine comes off the road over winter I do the following: Inflate tyres up to 40psi Put into gear Hand brake off Disconnect battery Put a couple of dehumidifiers in the car Every couple of weeks il take the car cover off for a few hours Every month il let the car roll a few feet to stop the brakes from sticking and to avoid flat spots on tyres, then the next month I'l roll it back again Mine is outside so somethings might not apply
  12. What’s the state of your battery? If it’s becoming weak it can cause all sorts of strange things to happen
  13. MR2 https://www.amayama.com/en/part/toyota/8161017010
  14. If it’s breathable and take it off every couple of weeks for a bit it’s fine. Iv only got one for mine cause it leaks in heavy rain lol
  15. Iv got a storm force for the civic, not cheap but fits well. Just don’t let cats on it, the little ***** have clawed holes in it and iv had to temporarily repair it with tape....not happy!
  16. To give an idea of what can be lost/changed, this is what Iv done: Aircon Power steering ABS Half sized rad Engine mounts Stainless exhaust and manifolds Induction setup Flyby wire throttle conversion Light weight alloys Coilovers Carbon bonnet Carbon spoiler Seats and belts - swapped for buckets and harnesses Interior plastics Speakers and stereo Spare wheel and tool kit Sound proofing floors and behind dash Sunvisors Headliner Rear wiper 3rd brake light Electric sunroof - swapped to ali plate Electric mirrors - swapped to manual Excess wiring Removable steering wheel Admittedly mine is a weekend/track car, there is still more to lose like the glass windows, doors, tailgate etc I might go the ITB route yet so can lose the inlet mani, induction setup aswell. Just depends how far you want to go, the more you lose the less comfortable it gets!
  17. It’s not just mpg that improves with weight reduction, acceleration, braking, cornering, tyre wear all improve lugging less weight around. But don’t forget you will alter the balance of the car if you remove all the weight from just the rear. Probably the best thing to make lighter without turning it into a track car is lighter wheels as already mentioned.
  18. My first 205, had this for 5 1/2 years and also had a green 205 for a while along with this silver one
  19. Iv got a few plans: Sunroof delete Roll cage Lexan windows Door panels carbon mirrors and boot harnesses Aiming for under 1000kg wet and then maybe try for 300bhp N/A How much will actually happen is another story!
  20. Don’t post that much these days, on the Celica side of things anyway, but 6 years ago I had bought my little green beasty so thought I’d share it as not many of these are/were about. Wonder if it’s still alive?
  21. Same here dubs, although I'm sure 1.39 rings a bell last time I filled up, 150 miles later it needs filling up again lol
  22. No I don't cut the bag just as it is. The best thing to use are the little silica bags you get in shoe boxes etc
  23. I leave a bag of rice on the dash whilst the car is parked up, it doesn't completely stop condensation but it certainly helps.
