Re: Gearing up to buy an MR2

So here's a totally non-controversial question (and I guess a test drive is a better way to answer it, but still): which is the most forgiving/easy to drive? I'm still a pretty novice driver, after all, and have only ever driven fairly modern FWD vehicles. Am I opening myself up to a world of pain ...

Re: Hi there - A Reintroduction

Good man :th: You know it makes sense :th: That Datsun though? Very tasty chap :cool1: Yes, more into preventative maintenance mode at the minute. I've managed to source replacement doors which aren't rotting and will be sprayed and fitted shortly. Thinking of also going more subtle and back to sto...

Re: Hi there - A Reintroduction

Welcome back! It's always nice to see the friendly faces still around.

Your reminding me that I need to commit some time to both of my threads. They've been far too neglected of late. Hopefully going to show the car some love shortly though.

Re: Gearing up to buy an MR2

The hard part is now finding one in really good condition, the youngsters have got hold of them over here now due to the low price and rolled, bowled and ass$^#d them. Ouch, that's not at all a sweeping comment :facepalm: I got my rev3 Turbo at 19 and don't think I've ruined it by any stretch over ...

Re: 2018 routes

I'm easy going, paintball always sounds appealing as do several other activities.

At the same time I'm quite happy to have a more relaxed exploratory driving day going slightly more local with a long stop as there's so much to see up there!

Re: Kent Run 2017 Season - Round 8 Sunday 19th/26th November

Twilight Tour. :laughing - Love it! That has given me an idea for next season... Local knowledge? All the roads on the way back have been used on one or more previous Kent Runs (admittedly normally in the opposite direction, but hey). Maybe it was the lack of visibility you mention. Not sure what t...

Re: Anyone changed their car?

Will be back in the rev3 Turbo again, rebuilt front brakes this time and some bodywork will have been done along with my shiny new windscreen to trash. Should be fun...

Re: Kent Run 2017 Season - Round 8 Sunday 19th/26th November

Didn't see you myself (apologies), also saw a black mk2 which was possibly V6 converted at the meet point at mid day. As above, you would have been welcome to have joined. Thanks for organising as always TLF was good to catch up even with the small crowd. I really enjoyed being out with the T-bar of...

Re: Kent Run 2017 Season - Round 8 Sunday 19th/26th November

3 of the 'ususal suspects' have said they are unavailable. Our Regional Rep seems to have gone into hiding. We have a distinct lack of new blood AFAICS. Oh, and I'm not on Faceache... There are 2 more places available at the table. They may yet get taken up. I'm waiting on some feedback about that....

Re: Kent Run 2017 Season - Round 8 Sunday 19th/26th November

I feel as though my ears are burning :blush: A lack of Focus focus: too many distractions... :rolleyes: Lets not get me in trouble now, just too many commitments these days as ever. I won't be able to make it back home in time to collect a car and make the start point for the 19th. Can you put me do...

You used to be able to get calliper refurb kits but not sure if you still can. If you can it's definitely worth doing as the callipers on an mr2 are well known for seizing, rears especially
Big red still do them through eBay, I've just redone my fronts :th:

Re: Brake Upgrade Advice

Standard pattern discs, carbotech pads, braided lines (clipped properly), dot 5.1 fluid :th: +1 on this, works spot on if you can put up with the brake dust :th: I've got Pagid disk, Matt Lewis brake lines (very cheap and quality, link below), carbotechs can be got from Rogue Motorsport and 5.1 fro...
