  1. You've not watched MightyCarMods before? They've been going like 10+ years and the most of their stuff is just jokes+laughs. I must admit, I was expecting the Sera to Chop the NX Coupe, was surprised at how much faster the Nissan was tbf. But then the fact the engine gave up the ghost at the end probably says all you need to know
  2. Also stick with the drums. They are just better than discs 😂
  3. I mean, they had that Stevo Evo Mk1 GT Around New Zealand a few years back. I know it was a little rough, but that would be worth some dollar to
  4. How long does it take to go to the post office Literally go on the way to work, never takes me more than 10 minutes out of my day. I use ParcelForce and it's literally walk in, scan, drop in the corner of the room pick up receipt go. If there is no queue, which there isn't usually, you're talking 60 seconds.
  5. I drove mine like a granny and it failed on me. Suspect that it wasn't built properly.
  6. I was having a conversation about this a while back. It's not a deal breaker. I don't think the 4EFE block is any weaker. But you don't want to be paying FTE prices!
  7. Hhmm, can't say I've seen Glanzas for that low. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1996-Toyota-Glanza-V-Starlet-1-3-Turbo-Auto/143697101073?hash=item217503c111:g:kzEAAOSwH5tfQ22X That looks like a nice clean example. The only other one on the bay looks a bit rough. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-Starlet-Glanza-V-GT-Turbo-Ep91-11-Months-MOT-Manual-Gearbox/184399796668?hash=item2aef1599bc:g:qgYAAOSwhuRfCwBU
  8. Very simple setup on the back. So there really is very little to go wrong. The rear arm is a "twisted" beam, if you're luck with a "Pan hard rod". Rear Anti-Rollbars are aftermarket. The rear arm is fixed in by two big bolts and bushes to the chassis. My starlet with 215000Km on the clocks were in pristine condition. Replaced anyway but there was no signs of wear. The arm is fixed onto shocks and the top mounts into the towerstruts. If not tightened, the rear arm will drop over bumps. So ensure the bolts are done up. Things like exhaust can knock on the rear arm or chassis of the car. So it could just be something simple like that. Then it's just a case of a dodgey rear wheel bearing. These are just taper roller bearings lightly placed into the hubs. So ensuring they're in good order and not over tightened. Can't think of much else that would cause knocking in the rear. As said they're pretty basic.
  9. Yeah wow, interior looks super clean and smart. I like what you've done with that actually!
  10. Sounds like it's drawing air past the butterfly to me. Noticeable on bikes where it has abnormally high idle and poor running performance.
  11. Haha, okay hats off to you a lot of love put into this fair play!
  12. Hey that's looking really smart!
  13. Amazing work as always, I love your attention to detail. Very impressive.
