Re: Ford Laser SR2/Mazda 323 SP20 owners- help please!!!!
My bro's got a SR2, not a bad car. They handle pretty good, still got the same engine as the old laser tx3's had with a lil more power an his old tx3 had the living shit thrashed out of it for about 100,000 kays while he had it an then me after, and had no problems with it other than replacing the gearbox after a he went through a phase off racing( an quite often beating) wannabe mick doohan's on their road bikes through the adelaide hills. His lil habit of holding it flat in first with a bit of pressure on the gear lever till it hit the rev-limiter an popped out of gear, stabbin the clutch an bangin it into second an wheelspinnin away probly didn't help it either. Had to replace the clutch as well !!
The aircon eventually packed it in after i sold it to a mate, but that is the only mechanical problems to date. Oh an he had to replace the computer last week after it ****ed up.
Never used stuff all oil in it's life of pain.
