Daihatsu Charade GTti

Recommended Posts

After the glanza began to really annoy me and a few other reasons, despite 7months work spending loads I decided to break it. Plan was to get a cheap beater to get me by and import something fresh next year. Saw this and had to go have a look, went for a test drive and went and picked the car up a few days later.



Its had alot of work done to it and really is super clean, which made a nice change compared to my glanza. Nothing rattles, no wires are bodged together no screws and bolts are missing. It seems everything works from the start, brakes are alot better than the glanza, the handbrake actually works, turbo doesn't shit itself with a few breathing mods. It handles better being IRS and lightweight with factory roll bars and underside bracing, So far I've fallen in love with it far more than I ever did with the glanza.

Enkeis were too big for the old school style arches so bought some renault turbines.

One of my favorite old skool cars! A friend of my brother had one. Was just as quick as my brothers ae82 gt twincam with only a 1.0l!

Enjoy the ride! :-)

Brakes, a map short term. In the future strip

All the suspension parts powder coat them all woth polybushes and track it. Turbo is pretty good tbf good to 1.4barish enough to put it around 170bhpish. Mani will need to be custom made

Ive had 3 of these all together. Great little cars. Just remember tgat these are really rare now, its a great little engine. They do not take too kindly to being abused. The gearboxes arent the best.

Oh I don't know, different kind of fun. I suppose you are more on your own a bit. I was driving around Chelt town the other night and a Jaguar XJ summit summit must of heard the chatter from the turbo on my car, and flawed it off the line, I was like yeah, it's a boggo 1.3 mate, on your own like. No point 'racing' after a car with 3X's the power lol.

I am told they are genuine gtxx sideskirts and are super rare

There really rare, replicas are even rare. Best mod i ever did on ming was to splash out on a full set of super pro polybushes, they tightened up the car and didn't ruin the ride. Would be cool if you could get meisterR to make a one off set of coilovers.
