Re: rear wheels fowling arches

Hi, Recently purchased a 1.6 Laser with nice alloys (not RS) and the rear tyres fowl the rear wheel arches when driven over rough roads. The tyre size is 205x60R13 x86H. They are recent new tyres and wheels so reluctant to change,rear shocks and springs appear ok . Any advice please? As said by oth...

Re: 2.0 Axle Ratios & Gearbox

Strangely everything Tom says is true. As he says though it is early in the year so it may not last :lol: A 3.75/3.76/3.77 axle would be standard with a 1.6 engine so your car may have started out this way, like mine, and it is the engine that has been changed not the axle. It is a fairly common upg...

So she slimmed down a bit for the video then. I was worried she might stand up which could have spoiled my breakfast :D

Re: The new alert system

! Best car I ever had on snow was an Austin Maxi that I bought for £25 when my first Capri 2.0S was in being rebuilt after I crashed it. I nicknamed the Maxi the mountain goat as it would go anywhere and I'm talking about the heavy snow of early 1981 for those old enough to have remembered it. Fort...
