icon14.gif  Thanks Group A owner! Wed, 18 May 2005 03:17 Go to next message
I just spotted a very nice stock as a rock (well at least it looked it) ST185 Group A RallyE in white.

That car was, up until today, my realistic dream car.

Was anyone with a white gt4 group A in fyshwick area heading towards kingston today??

Hi Man, that was probably me.

Did you see us run against that tricked up MIVEC FTO? He got a 1-2 length jump from the lights but he didn't gain an inch on us after that, all the way to top of third gear. Pretty good considering my car is heavier, had two people and is stock Cool

I didn't know ZASA was in Canberra?

Hey YGT04A - we exchanged waves one Sunday arvo about 2 weeks ago in the Tuggers area. My car was caked in mud from Dog Trap Rd rally adventure Very Happy

Also saw a red Group A heading out of the city near Duntroon (Thurs morning I think?). It had a huge front mount. Thought it might be Justen, but his car has a cut out front bar (this looked like standard Group A) doesn't it?

Yeah, nice car man. I really like the look of the FTO lowered with nice wheels. Your car really looked like it had a short wheelbase - certainly looked a lot shorter than the GT4.

My GT4 is stock as and has a few 'issues' at the moment. I've only just bought it, but it will be a much faster car by the time I've finished Wink

My mate was actually driving and he was cursing because if we were driving his car, you would not have seen us for dust. It's a mitsubishi too Very Happy

Thanks - looks like a nice GT4. I was actually thinking about selling the FTO to buy that exact GT4.

i heard some strange noises comin from your car....

Ive almost finished the FTO just got to add one last thing.. Wink

As I said, the cars got some issues. All of which will be addressed in due course. To be honest, you probably did well to keep the FTO Confused

Main noise is an annoying heat shield rattle.

Your car looks great - you've got me wondering now about what the addition will be?

Guess I'll pick up Speed and read all about it!

I didn't hang around - just ran out to Fyshwick to pick something up and then Kingston for lunch.

If I see you around I'll give you a wave Very Happy
