Hi guys, my name is richard (Dic) live in hobart tas. Like the site, found it whille surfing for info on u12's.
Own a 90 model red trx ka24, 5 speed with 362000k's and original donk. besides the high ks the body and interior are not to bad.
Although it does require a bit of work, but will make a good project car for the weekends when not working on customers cars duing the week ( motor mechanic by trade). Hey noss?, like the stickers any red ones left?
Couple of other questions, thinking (more to the point need to!) put a set of coil springs in the trx, thinking of using low front and rear king springs but has anyone tried low lovells springs? and question 2, what is the antrx ecm chip like?

cheers, Dic

Hey guys, my name's Jamie.... i'm 17 and i just got a Auto 91' U12 Pintara Exectutive **SUPERHATCH** hand-me-down from ma dad   ;D
He smashed it up about 2 years ago in a 5 car pile up and my good friends at SGIO paid for an engine rebuild (CA20E) and new front/rear body... it's very nice. Odomiter(spelling???) stopped working at 185k (The little gear has gone in it, like in a tech article on this site... currently looking for a replacement).

This site has really inspired me... i think i've caught the bug and i havn't even done anything yet :P should be fun.

Oh and i hail from Perth :)

Hi JelloBello, sounds like you have picked yourself up a good deal from the oldman.
I'm like you, caught the bug and haven't been a member for long either.

Hello. I'm David. Live in Melbourne. I recently bought a 1990 ford Corsair GL (Red, 2 litre) and want to learn a bit about DIY upgrades and repairs. Before this car I lived in Japan and drove a 1991 Nissan Bluebird (white 1.8 litre auto) which somone gave me (Free!!). It was a brilliant car to drive and thats why I bought the corsair when I got back to Australia. Was very happy with it for the first 3 monthes, then it started losiong coolant. I can't find any leaks and today I noticed some white smoke in the exhaust. I guess I'll be up for a new head gasket at least... there goes my budget for upgrades...(-_;) I wonder if anyone has any advise about how to fix it myself...?

There's actually a tech article on replacing your head gasket in the tech article submission board, it's a sub-board of the FAQ's section.

Welcome to the site :)

he's right, we are a bunch of clown's, but noss is an assclown...
anyway, if your on a budget i recommend Response amps by Jay-Car...
if not the Coustic or JL Audio...

Anyway megan, welcome to wierd world of antrx...
also it may pay to start a thread in the n00b zone and introduce yourself officially with some pics of your ride etc etc....

From the picture there it looks like it's a CA20 powered car, the steering wheel only has 2 spokes.
