mr2 back on the road in 9 months 9 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 21
Had taken my rev 1 tubby off the road during winter as i've a runabout for that (currently a 660cc 4wd subaru vivio) Then last april i started to strip the dash out and fix a new heater matrix,(cheers anto) but i couldn't get the time to finish it, finally after work in the school got off for the summer i was able to get stuck into it and i was eventuall able to tax her yesterday and get her on the road,

Real fun to be back in a fast car again and i will never grow tired off the turbo boost up behind my head, nice to be going for a drive just for the sake off driving again,

bad points since last year is i think it's down on power but not by much, brakes aren't as good as i would like but there's decent meat left on the pads so i'm going to change brake fluid and see what happens,
also the paint has seen better days, when i waxed it i could see all the little marks but ah well,
Good to be back in her and hope to see you's all at some meets soon.

All of life’s problems can be solved with two things—duct tape and WD40. If it moves and it shouldn’t, you need duct tape. And if it doesn’t move and it should, you need WD40

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Kc'd , welcome back to the road.

I would say the vivio was the right job in the snow, keep her another bad winter due this year.

Is it down on power or has it suffered from the brake sliders seizing due to lack of use, worth a check.

i'm hoping the brakes are still a bit still and will be worked free but i don't like the feel of the pedal i have so will do a bit of routing on a nice day, (would love to upgrade the lot with braided pipes and new disks and calipers,
subaru is a great little car, won't go above 70, looks terrible but i drive it flat out everywhere and it'd brilliant fun in the same way the old mini was,
