  1. So None of those Pics seems to work, Will relook at sorting it all out, Here's one that hopefully works. So We Invested a whole $200 into a $200 Car, and well its now got New Oil, New Sparks, New Filter, and A Tiny little New Battery. Was also able to score some sweet Rims off someone at a Rally when the person didn't pitch up to collect them. so another $100 there but they'll replace the Steelies on the car currently. In really Fun news. The Car is going down to Hawks bay this Weekend for a Grasskhana Event. So some life left in the old Girl. Will get some Pics hopefully. will spend Saturday giving it a once over, and Hopefully try figure out why she chokes a bit when going from idle to flooring it, like is super hesitant for a few seconds then rev's up nicely.
  2. Soooooooo Update time Its been slow going as been flat out building Motorsports Wiring looms, and finishing my Personal car. But We stripped it all out... Much Better. Also For all those Wondering. The entire Interior from a GF3 Excluding Seats fits inside a RS4 Avant. Who would have thought it. Who can resist Fitting the Seat and making some engine noises. Also Finally Got it off the Steelies, Got these nice 15" Rims for a happy $100. The Budget Rally car continues. This weekend, Weld in a Harness bar and the Harness plates in the floor. Still focusing on doing the absolute bear minimum to just go out and enjoy the car.
  3. finally Caught up on your Gravel express thread, So epic! Let me know if you got any parts that would be useful you want out of your Shed
  4. Cheers man!! Thats a lot of info there! Might look at just a WRX swap all round not anything bigger as wnat to stick with 15" rims for Rally Tires. I guess I'll keep a look eye for a Wrecking V4 and try get the whole rear hubs with brakes. Anything else I would need to change when doing the conversion to keep the braking force balanced?
  5. Morning Team, Finally crawled under the GF wagon and did see the rears were drum discs, What are the Brake upgrades available on the GF's I'm assuming the STi stuff would be worth a fair bit, but how much effort would it be for me to throw on WRX front and rears? Anyone done this before?
  6. Figured I should start a proper thread on this for entertainment/Education. So Background, I have competed in a few different motorsports and currently loving the Lemons (Now Nazcar) series. I've got my own team and Car we Race in it, But knowing how amazing it is I wanted to get friends involved and the Perfect car popped up for it. As I'm sure you guessed its a GF wagon, Factory Manual, AWD 1.5L Engine. Interior is in amazing condition while the exterior is what you expect, Also someone threw a rock through the rear window so thats on the Parts replacment list It was used as a paddock car as due to some chassis crease it can't pass a WOF, I've had a look underneath and the thing drives damn well. and at the price it was offered for its become the perfect car for my Friends to learn a lot more on cars but also gave a go at Racing! Pics from the day I collected it. So Hopefully work begins this weekend stripping it out and getting it ready for the Cage and other bits, We are going to be keeping everything as stock as possible But will look at upgrades like brake calipers, Radiators and hell even a bigger engine if its Cheap enough and just Bolts right in as the whole point of this is reliability and Fun.
  7. hahaha I forgot a Leone was even a thing. I'm really not cluded up on my Vintage Subaru's haha Who the Good Engine shops/ Subaru parts horders? keen to start reaching out and getting this moving.
  8. Well damn That does sound like a pretty power combo. I wasn't looking at building a motor but that could be a good path to follow. Might just go for the Drop in option for now and begin building that in the background. Unfortunately I do have a few other race cars that also require some budget
  9. Cheers man, Yeah was looking like that could be the option as most of that engine is pretty basic so hopefully wouldn't even need the ecu as doubt there is much difference when its so mechanical. Just hard to find info everyone seems to want to swap in the big turbo motors Any suggestions on a good place to find a EJ22? funnily enough there is no rule against it, only that the car must cost less then $999 and I got the car for $200. so got some budget for a engine swap.
  10. Hey guys, Damn its been long and I really need to do an update on my Focus build, but have been flat out with Rally and Endurance racing. Annnyyyyways. Today I bought a GF Wagon, manual, Awd with the EJ16 engine in it. Now I'm going to be stripping it out (A bit of a waste as the interior is mint) and throwing in a cage for some Lemons and or Rally Driving. What I wanted to find out, What would be the simplest engine swap I could do on these, its a pure track car so Cert and all that not an issue, but as its going to be a Lemons car, budget is tight. I saw from looking at the EJ Engines that the EJ203 looks like a possible option. But also as its an endurance car what engine that could work would be the best fit. Will def be staying NA. Also yeah if any other info on these, i really know nothing on the older Models or even the new models and getting working on them.
  11. Does this count? Working on the Racing Sim just waiting on the JST connectors and can begin wiring it up.
  12. I'm not expert on if this could be an issue with the engine somewhere but to me, it sounds like someones played around with the software to get things like auto blep and flat foot shifting but did a weird version of it. but I could also be way way off.
  13. OOOOOOoo I need to find this list Hopefully I'll be there
  14. ooohh I can top that, I've been Running HiFly tires, and so far they have done 2 Super lap events, and daily driving in between and they have been fantastic, I mean they are no PS4's and my lap times suffer heavily on them BUT for a daily tire at around $70 for 18" I honestly cannot complain and will continue to run them as dailies and if you on a tight budget and want to do a chrome/powercruise they'll work as long as you under 250bhp. Don't think they'll handle anything above that. I'm also looking at the Nexen tires for next season on a second set of rims
  15. They are not wrong.. kinda. Yes they both Street tires, but that said.. Ferraris and lambos come with street tires so nothing negative there. All the hot hatch guys also highly rate the PS's above the RE's personally having used the PS3's on the track they were amazing. If however you want to go a step beyond thats where things like the Toyo 888 and some of the Zestio's come into their own, they road legal and give crazy grip on the track but think they suffer somewhat in the wet so will have to think if they are for you.
