  1. Been doing some digging, diff is fine, looks like viscous coupling is to blame, removed front section of prop so just fwd at the moment and got my importer on the case of getting a viscous from Japan, failing that I've got a plan 🤫
  2. So today's update is, full set of rainsport 5's and more importantly full alignment, the first since fitting the coilovers. The drive has been absolutely transformed, it was scary to drive although I knew it was due to alignment and wasn't using the car for more than 5-6 miles a week. Now it handles beautifully and I can really appreciate how good these coilovers actually are. 😁 Full powerflow exhaust is booked in for a week Wednesday and I will update with pics when done.
  3. I don't know how it is compared to a normal ep91 as this is the first starlet I've ever owned. I'm not aware of any diffs available, however the way it was gripping on wet roads, when I was trying to break traction, I really don't think they're necessary. Not sure if someone has managed to fit some sort of lsd in the rear though as it does skip slightly at low speed on full lock, for example backing onto my driveway.it does not do it under normal driving conditions though 🤔. More investigation may be required. So yes open front viscous centre and supposedly open rear but this thing grips like
  4. It was a silly amount of fun when it was sending the back out every time you thought about the throttle. I think it will now be a lot quicker and safer lol. The weather was atrocious here yesterday but I couldn't get any wheel spin out of it, just goes where you point it now.
  5. So today I've got it back off the stands for the first time in about 6 weeks (maybe more) and took it for a test round the block. I'm now of the opinion that the 4wd was never working since I've owned the car, it was mental before, snaking the back end even in the dry and deadly in the wet (although it is fun sending a 3dr hatch sideways 😂). Now on soaking wet roundabouts with a foot full of 2nd gear and it just won't slide. This thing is now behaving exactly as you would expect a 4wd car to, goes exactly where you point it no matter how slippy the road is 😁
  6. Think the gearbox code is c50f off the top of my head.
  7. Not much to report, I have been waiting till the new month to tax the car as I didn't want to pay for a whole month and only use it for the last few days, will be off for it's exhaust this week. I did manage to get my panhard rod though so that's good. Did have a one small issue, when I started her up (first time since clutch change) and ran through the gears, it was only driving the rear wheels, (car on stands). After a quick Google I found someone who had the same issue on an ep85, which turned out to be the o/s drive shaft being slightly out. Guess what,
  8. Cheers mate, not sure how easy it would be to awd convert a chassis that wasn't designed for it. Nothing is impossible with enough cutting and welding though.
  9. Well I've been told my local powerflow centre are pretty good so hopefully they'll nail it first time. Think space may be a little more limited over the 4wd rear axle lol
  10. Cheers mate, it's nothing to look at compared to some of the starlets on here but I'm doing the best I can with limited funds and even more limited knowledge and ability lol.
  11. Cheers mate, I'll see what works when it's on the ramp Is yours 4wd mate?
  12. Gona have to be a full custom cat back, there's a place near me that does powerflow so ill be giving them a call.
  13. Cheers mate, main concern was to have them working effectively, but it would be rude not to tart them up at the same time.
  14. Sorry guys, never got notified of reply, and completely forgot I'd posted this. I've got a build thread going. Thanks mate 👍
