Small car issue
ok i know I said that I was looking at getting a mrII RS2000 but I want to keep my options open. I would also really like a slight more modern car (current ride is '88).
Ive seen some sweet looking laser tx3's around lately and its got me thinking...why not?
Well firstly yes its FWD..I dont know how I would cope with that but I guess I would get used to it. Plus I might as well try different cars so i can make up my own mind on whats better.
Anyway..the two cars in question would be a 1988-89 TX3 turbo 4x4 or a 1991-92 TX3 non-turbo (as most of the turbos are 8-9k and I only really have 5-7 to play with).
Now the 92 has 110kw and weighs approximatley 1000kgs (from memory). That to me would mean that it wouldn't be slow, but not that quick at the same time, maybe spirited is a good word. Styling IMO is good and it has all the features that anyone would really need.
The 88-89 is in the same boat..has around the same power but weighs 100kgs more and you can give or take 10kws..I think take. I would be a bit worried about the 'boxes and engine/turbo as they would be around the 180k mark atleast by now.
What do you guys think? Anyone had any experience with these cars?
Keep in mind that I still have atleast 4 years of uni so I need something thats goig to be reliable and fairly cheap to run. Although I dont mind spending some $$ on "nessesary" mods. ;-)
Ive been to fordlaser.com and read a bit....although most of them seem a bit ricey/immature -> not having a crack it was a general obsevation.
Oh and dont worry, this is a tempory ride, as when I finish uni, and put it to use, I defentaly want to get back into the falc's..a XR8 at that!
