Hey everyone,

 

I have had an account on here from years back when I was driving a Sera, I have recently bought a 1997 Starlet Life (Auto) to use as a daily as I blew an apex seal on my RX-8.

 

I plan on keeping the Starlet as a daily so I'm not racking up KM's on the RX-8 after the rebuild.

 

I would like to turbo the Starlet once the RX-8 Is back on the road so I'm not without a car. I have an EP82 4efte engine that was suppose to go into the Sera years ago but it was hit by a car while parked on the street and never happened. I have some questions about this but I will post them in the Tech forum.

 

Anyway I just wanted to say hello to everyone.

Welcome, nice looking Starlet, good to see another Brizzy member on here, what size wheels are they, and do you have lowered springs in it?

They are 205/40ZR17 on 17" BBS rims. It has king springs all round but not sure exactly how much lower they are then stock. I also have a set of BC Racing fully adjustable coil overs to go on it but I haven't had the time or need to swap them over yet.

King springs normally lower it 30mm, I have just ordered a set of Tein springs that lower them 57mm front and 50mm rear. The 17s make it look low, do you have an adjustable panhard rod on to centre the rear?

I have the Tein springs you speak of in mine with the stock pan-hard rod ... I t seems still pretty centered to me . Never had an issue with it.

 

I wouldnt bother to be honest... ( Running 15x 6.5" wheels 195 xx 15 tyres)
