    Keep the pics coming. I wish we had starlets in aus. Even with a large port 4ag, they will still be quick!
    All that car needs is some 13x9 hayashi streets
    it's tough to get good tires in a 13" in the US. i took off a set of 13" Panasports when i bought the car, simply because i couldn't get a tire that i could trust in the corners/rain. i'm hoping to find a nice set of 15X8's that i can run a hankook 225 45 15 RS3 on.

    also, where i'm from, i'll never have a fast starlet. . these guys will always have me beat!

    I moved up to Seattle 3 years ago, but I do still have the car. I'm in the middle of a high compression smallport 4AGE on boost build. Had a kid recently so progress is at a crawl lol. Let's see your kp!

    The only 13" wide rubber I can find is the VITOUR FORMULA in 225/50/13 and 205/55/13
    There are some others, but they are both "race only" and 4 to 5 times the cost.

    After a 6 year search, I found this one that had an all steel "wide" body and a 4A-GE already installed. (not very professionally)
    The transmission was very crunchy and the fuel was 8 years old. The brakes were also non operational. Also from sitting and it took me a few months to source the parts I needed just to get it on the road, The master cylinder booster was the most difficult part to locate.
    It also had a non complete/non functional wire harness. Neither KP61 or AE86. But some kind of mongrel. So I had to make my own wiring for the fuel gauge, speedo, Tach, temp, wipers, blinkers, horn.....etc.
    It hasn't been particularly fun yet. But it is street legal now.
    Sorry to hijack this thread and sorry that I can't upload other photos. I have lots of updated pictures. (The one I used is one that the seller sent to me.)
    Like I stated earlier, if you Email me, I'll send along a few better photos.
