  1. I have shopped around and have found the workshops I like to use for particular work I'm wanting done. I have spoken to others through general convo about some of the businesses I use and despite me being happy with the business I receive others won't use them from bad experiences. With the idea that "good and cheap does not exist" I don't fully believe in. When I got my head rebuilt I was suggested to go to a particular workshop which specialised with SR engines but I didn't like their prices so I went with someone who specialised in general head rebuilding who were half the price. Even thought it was half price I still got a excellent job done and can't see how the other workshop would have done twice a better job.


  2. I have a Precision 5130 on a redtop. My current tune is honestly shit and was only to get the car on the road as cheaply and quickly as possible. Planning on another tune sometime in the future just currently saving up.

     

    This is the my previous dyno sheet. There were still a number of problems during the run which needed fixing but we didn't worry about them at the time.

  4. I learnt how to thrash a car properly back in 1986 when I got my license. I had a 1972 mk1 escort 2 door with a massive 1300cc engine, 2 barrel webber carb and extractors with straight through exhaust, it didn't have enough power to get me into any real trouble easily. I would thrash the ring out of it on dirt roads clutch kicking it to get it sideways, had to do that even on dirt roads to get a power slide, so clutch kicking isn't a newish drifters thing. But anyway I learnt how to control a low powered car first then got more and more powerful cars. So something like an S15 for a very green new driver wouldn't be the best idea so maybe something like an sr20 na silvia would be best to learn how to control a car in for an inexperienced driver.

     

    :Drugs: You had what??? What happened to it? Bet you wished you still had it.

    Farrkk yeh,a couple of years ago I was looking for a new project. Mk1 2door escorts are so hard to find, couldn't find a half decent one without total rust, instead I got my teenage favourite that I couldn't afford so the mk1 escort was the closest back in "86", and that's a mk1 Capri xl 1600 which is worth so much more than a mk1 escort. Am now doing a full restoration back to standard. It will be so nice to drive another weekend car that isn't a police magnet like my S15, even though it only has 98hp at the flywheel.

    And thanks BOOSTED180 for recognising an awesome old car inthe mk1 escort!!!!

     

    I'm a mad small ford fan. I have two MK1 Escort 2 doors, MK1 Escort Panelvan and a MK2 Escort 4 Door. Here I am spending all my money on my 180 when I should really be spending them on my Escorts. I have more people come up to me and complement me on my Escorts then when I'm out in my 180.

  6. I had a VS which had done over 330,000k's and it had been thrashed by the previous owner and then thrashed even more by me. Majority of the K's were done doing burnouts in it but the dam thing wouldn't die on me. I got myself a Lancer (nice cheap car for daily duties) and handed down the VS to my brother. He babied it and it blew up on him within a couple of months. My theory is that it blew up because he wasn't thrashing it enough. In a way I miss that car.


  7. The only features my first car had were front disc brakes, an auto-choke carb and electric thermo fans. Beyond that, absolutely nothing. Didn't even have a digital clock, tachometer or a tape deck (radio only).

     

    You had it all mate. I cruised around in a 1978 Ford Escort with a manual choke, no clock, no tacho and a radio which only tuned to AM stations.


  8. If the S15 is illegal on your P's buy it anyway if it's exactly what you want. Then buy a shitbox for the your provisional period. In that time you can keep the S15 in the shed and do little things to it like suspension etc. Once your off your P's you'll have a sweet ass S15 to cruise in. That's what I'd consider doing anyway.
