Group A from OZ

Postby Puffy » Mon Jun 20, 2005 12:13 pm

Hi everyone,
My car has been off the road now for over a year now and its starting to get me a bit down :cry:

I have owned it (more like its owned me) for 10 years. Its going through its final phase of mods. I think it will be my weekend car once its finished with perhaps the odd track day now and then.

Sorry about the quality of the pics as they are scanned from old photos.

Castrol Graphics - What started out as a bit of fun led to a year sponsor ship.

Image



Leather interior came next and the car was decked out with state of the art Alpine gear that year

Image

Auto team preped the car for race events in return for advertising on the car.

Image
Image

Castrol sponsership ended. Last event for castrol was at Bathust 1000. A big racing event in OZ 8)

Auto team requested the car continue to be a sweep car at rally events. Could not follow through due to work commitments. :doh:

All stickers removed. Good not to attract so much attention anymore.
Started working on the performance side of things.

Additions to the car in the last year have been a worked 205 motor.
Full rewiring of the engine bay :doh:
carbon kevlar seats and willan harnesses
weds SA90 forged wheels
Image

Jic magic suspension
Image

earls coolers
Evo 8 DBA floating discs with 205 calipers
blah blah blah anyway thats the story and when its complete I will post some decent pictures but unfortunatly it wont be anytime soon.

you confused me for a minute with the pic of the wta i/c then the next pic was of that monster front mount. Either way, thats a clean looking car. Good luck with the buildup (cause we all need a little luck :wink: )

I think he had the W2A intercooler when he had the stickers.

Awsome car, those leather seats look awsome why get rid of them? I was planning on getting some seats done like that (probably just plain black)

Yeah, the car had the standard WTA setup but after some testing of intake temps I decided to go with the frontmount.

I ended up selling the leather seats and keeping the race ones. Not only were they much lighter but as Minde_Kei said they feel great and much more secure. I should have built 2 different gt4's come to think of it :lol:

Thanks for the comments.

Thanks, after upgrading the brakes they would not fit. Sadly sold them to another GT4 owner. Had to get them drilled as they were not available in 5x100. Not sure they ever made them in that stud pattern.

Sweet! What are your HP goals? How do you like your JIC susp? Did you use Jic for street or rally?

Thanks for all the comments.

I will be using the JIC for track mainly. No real HP goals but would like to see how it compares now to last time it was placed on the dyno.
