Toy Tuning Demo Car No.... er ..... 3? - Toyota Starlet KP61 4AGE

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As some may know we did a swap with Steve on the site. We swapped our demo no2 with his RWD Starlet KP61. As you can imagine very different cars, our demo no2 was pretty impressive with a stack on high quality parts and fully forged engine but something about the KP drew us towards it!

Overall we have been pretty impressed considering the age, she has a host of mods with the majority carried out in Japan. Sourcing parts for these cars is not easy so buying a supped up one made complete sense although we've only just started!

She is being returned back to red (original colour) and we will be more than likely carrying out a turbo conversion. The drift competition is getting harder and harder, a lot of 86's this year are running near on 300hp so with our 150hp we will struggle to keep up but that is soon to change. We are looking at a rear AE86 beam conversion to allow a greater spectrum of parts (current LSD is quite worn - someones being doing donuts :)). Ford running gear is tempting but we are not going that route you will be pleased to know!

Anyhow this is just a brief introduction and we hope you like her, will be a nice addition to the fleet :rockon: Below are a few snaps I took after a good clean, since then we've built a new rad, sorted the wiring and a few other tad bits. We have a TRD spoiler and splitter coming from Japan as well a new brace and some new adjustable arms. Now we have new employess it will allow us to spend some more time on her so watch this space! We will get some proper pictures of her added to the demo car page which will be done in a few more weeks, took some last week but Ad's needs to have a play with them no my forte! :)

@ Ste - Thanks I think that's what makes them you don't see many with them really.

@ Gaz - Yeah agreed, I took those with a N95 Nokia so not too bad! Ad's has a nice SLR so will get him on the case will be updating the demo car section on the site this week.

@ Scuth - Not on the car please :)

Just paid import duty on the TRD splitter and spolier so will get them on asap :)

Have a good weekend everyone.

Thanks everyone, well we are building three demo cars now. No1 we have been building for a few years now, hoping to have her ready for the last two Nippon Challenge races this year. I won't go into detail but we are hoping for anything between 500-600bhp/tonne with a host of custom parts, fiber glass body panels, full weld in cage, stich welded, dog engagement gearbox, billet driveshafts, 5e fully forged with HKS GT2835R turbo will be an entertaining drive! No2 has now been swapped with this, we have a 20v Silvertop (with K26 kit) going in the Glanza which will be the new no2 and this will be no3. We won't be going 4efte in the KP it will be 4age turbo.

Anyhow she is being featured later in the month so will let you all know how it goes.

Simon - If you can get those wheels for that do it they are pretty rare, they are actually racing wheels that were used on the Hoshino Racing Nissan S12 back in the day:


They would have had brake ducts though for cooling, hard to make out in the picture but the same wheels, only bigger and deeper! ;)

What do you think of the proposed graphics would be great to here your views:


Thanks all, Simon will be in touch soon :)

@ Si - Thanks mate appreciate the comments. She is being featured at the end of the month, won't have time to paint by then but will get some graphics on ;)

@ Simon - Not at the moment but we will be slowly starting to specialise in the KP as well so sure we can help soon. Check out this video:
