            looks tops mate, although glanza's never came in 5 door, your car would suggest otherwise, well done.

              Had to pick it up I refrained myself from posting that :L but im sure the owner knows seeing the amount of research that would have been needed to bring it to this shape

                Yeah i wanted all the looks of a Glanza but the practicality of a 5 door so i decided to make something unique and put 2 and 2 together.

                Im going to a track day & gymkhana next Sunday at Hampton downs so Ill try to get some in car footage of that.

                I have also found a 5 speed gearbox which ill probably get next week. Im tired of the car revving heaps at 100k's.
                The gearbox is from a 4e-fte so its stronger and will be able to cope with most/all future power mods.

                  That's such a cool little car man, why does every other country get good little cars other than the US!? That's a great before and after, I gotta admit thats a huge amount of progress.

                    Cheers man, sometimes i cant believe the progress that ive done on it. They dont have starlets in the US? I think Toyota made some in LHD

                    Today I attended a track day at Hampton Downs, that track is awesome!!! The elevation changes and tight corners make it a really fun track.
                    Dad got a few videos of me but some of them he couldnt see the screen on the camera and ended up taking vids of the sky
                    Im uploading the 2 good ones at the moment but it may take some time as were over our cap

                        Finally installed my amp for the 6x9's which i bought from jaycar. Its a 2x80wrms Precision Response amp which seems perfectly matched to the speakers 75wrms.
                        I must say that it is a very loud setup for the price that it cost.

                        Made a mount for the amp that sits between the suspension towers to hold it in place. Its easily removable if I choose to take it out when I go drag racing.

                        I also found an old video from one of my first drag meets.
                        I was racing against my friends 4wd starlet with the same engine as my car. I only just won.

                          Never seen one before, might have had a revised exterior tho.... I just love this car soooo much.

                          I'm very impressed by the amount of tracktime you've seen, I'm only 16 so I cant really get out there yet (I have to be 18 ), I always love talking to people who get out there and see what there mods ACTUALLY DO! It's pointless to mod, performance wise, if you aren't going to test your cars new limits.

                          Hats off to you sir

                              Thanks man, I dont think they have starlets in the US (something about frontal impact laws?) so that may be why you havent seen one
                              Bummer about the track days, over here if you have a licence you can drive on a track. Ive seen 15 year olds going around a track learning to drive!
                              I love buying parts to actually improve performance and handling and experiencing how it effects the car rather than just getting a part for [email protected]#k value.
                              Ive actually just entered in a racing series for slower cars starting in October so there will be more vids coming soon. Ill try get an onboard camera by then.

                              Hope you can wait till your 18 and get on a track instead of being stupid and street racing.
                              In the mean time jump on a racing simulator on your computer and get some practice in

                              Glad to hear that man, I saw one when i was a kid and thought that they looked quite modern for a 90's car.
