Daymoe's RA60 (with exploded muffler) 56k Warning Wed, 19 October 2005 09:41 Go to next message
For my first post here (imma long time stalker, first time poster) i thought id post pictures of my first car, which i still own. My RA60 celica. Shes a stock 21-RC 5spd. I eventually want to sell her for an MA61. my favourite toyota.

My Car has a tendency to backfire on humid days after a quick release of the accelerater. This happenend two weeks ago. You can imagine how loud the explosion was...and how loud the "muffler" was afterwards!

This is what it looks like today. (LUKEY HIGH FLOW MUFFLER + STAINLESS STEEL TIP)

INTERIOR - Nice and Black. Makes finding after market goods a breeze. Eg gearknob, steering wheel (yes a genuine suede sparco)

DAMAGE - This is what happens after staying at a cousins house and leaving the car half parked on the road/kerb. YOU WAKE UP TO THIS! Mad SHE HAD BEEN HIT THEN THE BANDITS RAN. the neighbours played dumb to the questions i asked them. i assume some hit it whilst reversing out of the driveway across the road. so my straight bodied celica was no more straight bodied.

yer that was my original plan. but in reality the car is not as good as the pics make it. there are so many annoying things with it that hold me back on doing it up. for example: no power steering. and the car needs to be de-rusted and re painted. Where could i find a 1g-gte in perth?

Hey Daymoe,
I think I've seen you go past a few times!
Next time, drop in and we can have a natter - I may even fire up the 1J sitting out the back (not that I really need an excuse).

Regards

Peter

nah im pretty sure that wasnt the case. because on previous occasions to that explosion the backfires the car produced naturally were extremely loud..almost on par to this one. and the conditions were perfect for the worst possible explosion.

ie.
1. humid conditions - happend just after the rain on the day
2. quick release of accelerater - i did a U turn mashed the pedal the quick released it when i got wheel spin
3. the engine was still cold - it backfires more when the car has just been turned on.

So no potatoes and no turning the key off then on during motion. which are the first two explanations people come up with.

that settles that then Rolling Eyes
