Nice ride, lets drive fast next to each other on some long stretch of road sometime.

I think you inspired Riyaaz to do nothing to his car :mrgreen:

:P Krakie is a winner in my books, all my books.

@ Riyaaz : Just give me a headstart, when I launch I can do it at 6000RPM and won't get any wheelspin whatsoever, hardyhar.

So I had the car tuned at KSD today mainly because it seemed abit heavy on petrol. 1st run was 75.9kw 155nm. They found a perished fuel pipe and replaced. Also removed the top trumpet from the airbox.

Final figures are 79.1kw @5128rpm and 160nm @4342rpm. It's alright :P
Will just have to check how's the consumption now :thumright:

Here I thought you are staying part of the stock club with me.
I'm actually enjoying my 4X4 lol, no scraping, no worrying if I'll clear anything :mrgreen:
Everyday I think about doing something though, but priorities might force me to keep it as is.

How's the car doing otherwise?

This car has HECTIC body roll bru!! :shock: just ask sedick, it feels like you driving a boat :oops:

Hopefully lowering it will stiffen the suspension abit. Otherwise it's going alright and I just accepted it's a 1800 and will be heavy on juice :oops:

If I get 10L/100km then I'm lucky! :o before the price hike now, I used to get about 180km off a R200 (18.7L).

I'm not sure if that's normal or not but it's acceptable I guess lol
