Post by mi60o0 » Sat Dec 15, 2018 4:47 pm

So today I bought blackie
As my red one is going on parts
So blackie is stock 192 with 44k miles on the cloak.
Blackie is rust free shell and stock apart from exhaust
• Japspeed exhaust
• toyo decat
• neon underneath and inside all remote control

We was to lc rotary today and done compression test.
Figures are nice imo
Soon I will start to mod it a bit

So it wears black, has ‘44k on the cloak’ and has special lights to make you aware of it’s presence?..

I think it should be called ‘BatRex’ ;)

Did you go to the same Engrish skool as Dazza? ;)

Being dyslexic I'm not really in a position to point the finger but I would recommend re-reading your posts before you Submit, just to see what auto-corrupt has actually tpyed.

I will get minimap for the rex at some point to clear decat engine light but I have problem with crank sensor I think
Today I unplug it clean it with contact cleaner reset ecu with 20 brake press.
Car start fine idle okay some time at neutral I judged for 50 rpm not a big move but during drive is nice and smooth also a lot better with new plugs coils and leads
So I will try to get sensor from my import or UK one
