One of the tyre walls in the background of the archefield photos.... It had a cement wall behind it.... :(

Go-kart tracks are fun but pretty tight...

Luckily it doesnt look too bad, Front guard is glass and easily replacable, door is replacable, and the dent in the back doesnt look too bad.

Nice work though sam, thats one hot trueno :wink:

Hey mate,

You'll be fine with 130kw no worries..

Its a standard UNOPENed gze. I know this is the thing that has provided me with the super reliability of about 50 events without any engine problems at all. Its still strong and holding great compression.

The ZE is a motor built for forced induction from factory and has the forged pistons as well. As soon as you open the motor i beleive that you release the toyota "Magic". Without spending super dollars to get a motor rebuilt by a professional (hard to find here) this is the best way to get reliability. :)

I've seen others repeatedly rebuild or build up motors with all the goodies and not get a quarter of the reliability i've found with my package. Just keep the boost modest and you'll be laughing.

As for changing anything i can't think of anything as its been perfect. The only problems i've had with the car have been blowing 1 diff centre and 2 w series gearboxes. Only reason i'm moving on is to try something different. :)
