I've noticed we have our own little section but I don't see anyone coming here to talk about Lasers & TX3s so I wanted to know who else has one I know I've seen several people on here who do.

My story is I've owned 2 KF TX3s previously & now have a KE TX3 for a daily driver while I am trying to get my XD on the road again. While I'm a V8 man at heart I love my little TX3s they are fantastic little cars for what they are.

So cmon people let us know about yours.

Well I dont have a TX3 or that but I do have a very neat KE that is one great little car,but as time goes on it is almost time to update, I'm looking for a KQ SR/2 manual I love them they look so good.it would be a sad day though to see the KE go.

Well my first car was a KF TX3 Tiurbo AWD (saved fcukin hard for it to) which i had added a set of mags to before i rolled it an wrote it off, then i bought my bro's KF TX3 N/A Front driver which had an exhaust, mags an airfilter plus lowered springs an shocks, All koni's i think, it handled better than my Turbo but was firkin loud as shit with the exhaust he had on it so i sold it an bought my ED XR6 that i have now as i patiently wait till my ute gets slowly closer..........

The Lasers are all very good.. My first car was a KC GL... Looked like a Ghia by the time i was finished with it...
Cant beat them for realiability and economy

I'm considering going back to a KE TX3 Turbo very soon.
I got the body kit sitting in my shed...
And i miss how fun they were to scoot around in

2.25 or 2 go nicly with the NAs with some decent 4-1 extractors.

Lower starts at ~$200 but you really should consider changing the shocks which are $200 each end to get a decent handling difference ( i paid about that for mine when i did my 4 door laser). Fit it yourself its not rocket science i did it with just the gregorys manual.

And yer i own two lasers.
92 KH1 S 4 door
90 KF2 TX3 AWD-T

About to sell the 4 door and considering a KE 4wd t for rally use with a mate.

hey, my instument panel wont light up!! we have checked the fuses etc and the indicator and fuel light etc all light up just not the tacho and speedo etc. we tried to take the insument panel out to see if it was a poor connection but we couldn't work out how to get it out. As in we unscrewed everything but when we tried to pull the unscrewed instrument panel out we couldn't get to the plugs holding it in, in the back. do u know how to fix this problem??

thats your speedo cable i would say holding in the clustor there are 2 ways.
1. Losen it from the gearbox then give yourself heaps more slack to put it out and see what you are doing.
2. run your hand up around the steering colum possibly cutting yourself but saving some time.
