  1. Jack's TTE supercharged yaris

    Looks good man, I see alot of SC owners have issues witht hings breaking here and there...touch wood, 4 years mine is still good!!
  2. Also, SOLD the Enkei Wheels due to big brakes, running with the 17" TRD atm, nice and light wheel but 17's are just too big. TRD Wheels-2121 by Shane, on Flickr found some genuine Vitz LED tail lights, so chucked them! /ricerboy Before LED Tails-2127 by Shane, on Flickr After LED Tails-2133 by Shane, on Flickr New rims which clear the brakes..15 x 8 +32 BuddyClubs with 225/45/15 Hankook RS3! BuddyCLub-2239 by Shane, on Flickr Clears the Brembos! BuddyCLub-2256 by Shane, on Flickr Will have to get them sprayed, not sure about the blue and Wife hates it BuddyCLub-2266 by Shane, on Flickr
  3. Trial fitted a friends TE37V, 15 x 8 +25, way too aggresive, but heaps of brake clearance, so ill try and find a set to my specs. 2017-11-19_10-51-37 by Shane, on Flickr Cusco Under brace fitted! 20171119_152740-01 by Shane, on Flickr This is whats going to make it so much better around the track! Managed to track down a used Cusco LSD from Ireland, lets hope its good..looks good but im not a pro. Apparently the Aussie model Echo uses a 6 bolt diff, where the Japanese Vitz uses an 8 bolt, same as AW, AE111, EP82 etc. Diff-3 by Shane, on Flickr Diff-2 by Shane, on Flickr Diff- by Shane, on Flickr

  5. Ended up buying a rear cradle from Japan to do disc brake comversion, any tips on this? Rearcradle by Shane, on Flickr rearcradle2 by Shane, on Flickr Well hit Wakefield again and didn't better any times, but It was expected as the track was very cold and i went easy on the brakes...which didnt make a difference...killed the rotors again and the pads were gone...... On the way home, dropped into a friends work place, where i got home to order new rotors and pads (DBA Street rotors and Bendix pads) 20170609_160119-01 by Shane, on Flickr Other than the brakes it went good. Wakefield-0993 by Shane, on Flickr Went with a couple of mates, knife to a gun fight lol 20170609_103543-01 by Shane, on Flickr Had some fun with some MX5's [video=youtube;ac0-CSb1_zA]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ac0-CSb1_zA&feature=youtu.be[/video]
  6. Velo Race Seat fitted from my Supra with a Juran seat rail from Japan Velo-0671 by Shane, on Flickr Velo-0669 by Shane, on Flickr Wakefield Park (Racetrack) was good fun, think its the slowest ive been around Wakefield, but reeled off a 1.16.8 towards the end of the day. FWD, is a little tricky, got caught off guard on turn 3, with lift off oversteer that killed my confidence. In the end, the car was super reliable ass expected and a hoot to drive!! 20170306_152630-01 by Shane, on Flickr 20170306_131252(1)-01 by Shane, on Flickr 20170306_114046-01 by Shane, on Flickr Filled up at Shell in near home, drove 2.5 hours to Wakefield, did 38 laps...this pic is driving out of Wakefield...so cheap to run. Supra would need two tanks and two jerry cans! 20170306_152716-01 by Shane, on Flickr One downer was the brakes. Rotors copped a hiding. Literally 2 days old this setup IMG_20170306_193953_600-01 by Shane, on Flickr
  7. RARE Jimze CF Meter panel. Was too scared to use a holesaw, so I used a dremel and cut it by hand, turned out ok! 20170225_113914 by Shane, on Flickr TRD Defi gauges....These are just sitting here, not adjusted, so looks a bit wonky, but once all nipped up it sits nice. 20170225_114731 by Shane, on Flickr Installed the Exedy HD Clutch also (No pics :(), grabs nice nice, but still very streetable.

  12. HI All,   Long time owner and Lurker!   Here is my  2001 Echo Sportivo my Wife (GF back then) bought for 16k (AUD) in 2001. Pretty much an ex demontrator. Its been a great, faultless car for the past 15 years and my wife wont sell it lol.   Its currently got 130k kms on it. There are battle scars from the train station, but Im not going to worry about those!   Spec: 2001 Sportivo Echo 1NZ-FE (1.5) Fully spec from Factory (Dual Airbags and ABS which were the options back then) Its basically a Vitz RS, but miss out on rear Disc Brakes   Originally picture back in 2002 (With my old 1JZ IS200 in the background!)   Did a track day back in 2010...it just occurred to me, that the Potenzas RE001 i bought lasted 6 years! Added those and Enkei Wheels and Fujitsubo Wagolis axel back in 2010 Ive tried plenty of other wheels in that time from stock we have (I run an import business here in Australia), but the enkei fitment is spot on. One day id love to fit some fat 14" watanabes and flares' Pic from that day    Added Tein S-STech Springs after that track day   Quite liked the Enkei Barrels   SSRs no good lol   16" SSR looked good!   Fitted a Cusco strut brar   Work Equip 01 (Door damaged from Station!)   Fast Forward to 2016. The Potenzas were getting old, so now they have been upgraded to Hankook RS-3 Stock Shocks were starting to get really stiff, and knocking, one rear was leaking, so naturally time for an upgrade. Ohlins PCV   Found a 2NZ-FE (1.3 Vitz motor) with a Blitz Supercharger on it in Japan... 2 days later, Supercharger is bolted on mine!   Mechanic needs to wire it all up now, and put it on the Dyno. I may need an ECU, like E-Manage. The blitz kit comes with a little air/fuel ratio controller, but the one that came with this was for a 2NZ-FE Auto (Even tho the engine was attached to a manual gearbox) and wont work with mine.    Ive got this genuine lip here too, i will fit   Inspriation: Jimze Vitz RS   Genune Vitz RS Dash, wonder if I can get it working. Muchc ooler than the Digital!
