  1. Nah some kind of fwd 2L non turbo petrol version . It handled off road areas very badly (bouncy as hell) , had bugger all torque , a steering wheel you could drive with your pinky (way too much assistance), overly assorted brakes, nothing happens for ages after flooring the accelerator pedal and not that great boot space for a big vehicle (my hatch has more!).. just an all around bad car lol. Actually rented the i30 but this was the ‘free upgrade’ because that was not available when we arrived . Oh also was lead to believe for ages the fuel economy was amazing because it was on half bar until 500km, then suddenly when to E at 550km lol. Bit overly critical here but that thing was just an awful experience unable and I’m really glad to be back in my car Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Drove it after 5 days off overseas driving some mitsi asx over couple thousand kms... oh boy this thing feels zippy even in eco mode compared to that rubbish fake suv car [emoji2961] when I put it in sports # I got an amazing feeling that reminded me why I love the car so much Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I just saw something about masters and slaves, can you explain it again plz? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Holy crap, super jealous of that wheel!!! Is that something which cyruslow supplies here in Nz or was a one off? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. i've got this on my list of ever growing stuff to do, haven't quite decided on what colour yet though. when was researching found lot of conflicting info about whether need high temp stuff or not, only used high temp caliper paint for it in the past. note this vid suggests to ensure you use white base coat under the fluro yellow to get that brightness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLf5Z25P7fk
  10. Could well be a ground,issue. Would probably pay to chuck one of those aftermarket grounding kits on. When you eventually relocate the battery and direct feed the fuel pump you’ll resolve that end too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk In terms of root issue however, if getting good stable feed at pins (measure resistance too, as you would when checking for solid grounds when installing an amp for example) but link reporting much less then either software bug or some power distribution issue. Either way you ain’t got fuel speed controller so just direct feed that sucker with fuse/relay , chuck in a #racecar like pump prime / kill switch too Doesn’t link have some diagnostic / testing mode for the injector controls? I recall seeing something like that when playing around with mine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. done about 1200k's in my grb now Car: 2008 WRX STI Tuned: 225kw Fuel : Gull Force 10 Fuel economy from fuelly : 12.3L/100km (8.1km/Litre) Avg price per km from Fuelly : $0.280 Driving style : Boost everywhere. Daily driven through traffic as well as weekend fun car.
  12. Wow now that’s a real wing! Where can I get one of those ?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Old 101 the strand I crashed a car meet for this, was pretty awkward snapped 3 fast pics then left quickly New Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. hmmm seeing as they have a grb section, does that mean they can guarantee it in the right offsets to clear your brakes and such? i think that was the main concern right? that last BBS one looks really cool, the first one looks cool too but at same time it's almost identical to the newer subarus stock wheel
  15. thats hectic as again glad you're safe, that you're still in love with lookin for same kinda car and that you can be so positive about it sharing your experiences / learnings! the under 25 one is a massive one along with restricted license drivers or 'inexperienced' drivers who haven't had their full for atleast 2 years, meaning either they're not covered or if covered, have to pay something crazy like $2k in excess usually. i'm a little surprised she had that reaction considering she's an mr2 driver, usually that car teaches people way more caution through harsh punishments
