This is my replacement for the rx-7 as i need something to cope with country roads. Since everyone i work with drive Land Rovers, i figured i needed a rally ... Show moreinspired car. This is 2.0L turbo 4 wheel drive GSR Lancer. currently standard but have plans to make it a 300bhp daily drive which i can use on the occasional weekends, on a track.
on the 24th of june i had a small incident involving my car runnig on 7yr old snow tyres diesel roundabout which then left me facing the wrong way on a dual carraigeway with the passenger side slammed against an Armco.
on the 27th i had it put in to Towcester Coachworks and had the rear half put straight and just waiting to have the rest put right when i have more money. My new 16" Team Dynamics Motorsport White rims arrived and am waiting til i have more money to put some decent tyres on.
25th August- i've spent alot having the car put right and am now just waiting till i can afford the tyres(should be a couple of weeks)-Toyo T1-R's. also i have fitted a 10" sub as the systems lacks bass, i dont like alot of bass but do need some.
27th august- Got the tyres fitted on the wheels and decided i need red mudflaps and foglight with white covers to give it the rally look. overall: the wheels look sweet on the car
14th october- been along time since i've been on here. i've fitted fog lamps on to it but money problems have meant that this is all i can afford. as the cars been sat for a while and started up once a fortnight means the brakes have gone rust, so guess whats next on the list! i have advertised forsale and keep uummming and arring as to whether it the right thing to do. i've decided to keep it as i have never kept a car for more than a year and this could be the first.

This is my 'sort of' project car. i am planning on tuning it for street use and for use on the odd ocassional track-day.
i purchased it in aug-2006 ... Show moreand it had apexi twin airfilters, hks down pipe, 5zigen mid-pipe(apparantly but have not checked) and a trust rear box. overall the bodywork needs tlc as does the interior, which is why it makes for a good project. origanally purchased for �2500 with a good solid engine.
when i bought it from rotechniks it required new rear bushes and a new clutch master cylinder. while it was there i had all the fluids changed.
since picking it up it's been treated to an apexi powerfc and a set of ultralite Daiki's in 18's with wide rear's as you can see.
i'm waiting on a set of stance coilovers from dme-motorsport( bought mid oct and there still not here:-S) also have new drop links for the front and a racing beat anti-roll bar brace waiting to be fitted. also have a momo steering wheel from another rx-7 to go in(possibly from a different model where it was fitted as standard)
my plan is to get to about 350 brakehorse power at the wheels on sequentials. i'm currently running about 240bhp at the flywheel(guesstimate) due to only 7.5psi of boost (although it does reach 10psi while in fifth doing 120mph ). so far the topspeed i have reached just over 170mph. which aint to bad :-) once the boost is sorted and i've got a few more bits on it that i'm after, it should be around 300bhp with a bit of luck.
just a few more pics...coilovers should be on in the next 2 weeks along with a racing beat anti-roll bar-brace
27th feb: just fitted xs power intercooler and am having to reposition the air filters due to the size of the intercooler and also need to make a blanking plate or get a BOV fitted on one of the intercooler pipes. a few more pics
10th march: fitted anodised pulleys and removed air pump due to the intercooler sitting a millimeter away from the air pump pulley and have order a blow-off-valve. coilovers are almost here but have to get the car mobile to get them fited and set-up:-(
24-march: BOV fitted and air filters moved around(slight twisted :-s) but all sorted. hmmm... now where are DME Motorsport with my coilovers
i've now sold my rx-7 due to change in job and have had to buy something that's suitable for the country roads :-( Show Less
