  1. I've had a little experience with 3,4 and 5k's. Honestly I wouldn't waste my time with a 4k. If you have to get another motor find a 5k. Real world example - a cammed 5k took 2+ seconds a lap off my time around the Ballarat autocross track. Real world example 2 - up a local hill, the 3k (std healthy engine) would struggle to hold 100km/h in 4th. With the 5k (std healthy), it would accelerate in 5th up the same hill.
  2. I'll keep my ear to the ground at work.......
  3. Hemco in Ballarat VIC will do seatbelts.
  4. I first thought it was a tachometer, but it's only a clock
  5. what's not in the pic us the remote boot release. You can see the clock on the dash. The last "book" service was around 18000 miles but has a lot more now
  6. No. The Tiara is owned by a guy that saw the KE10 and asked if we wanted to display his ute
  7. "Kevin" the 1966 KE10 Corolla arrived at week ago. Kevin was sold new by the towns Toyota dealership driven and ended up in storage for 16 years. Fast forward and the dealership heard about the KE10, did a deal, cleaned him up and put him on display in Bendigo for a while until he was sent home last week. Kevin is powered by a K motor bolted up to a Toyoglide and driving it with no brakes was sketchy. This week a Tiara Ute rocked is as well.
  8. Delly spent time at the AIS, went and played College basket ball in the US. Wasn't drafted to the NBA but through guts and effort scored an NBA contract later on. Fast forward he now has a Bronze medal to go with his NBA Championship Ring.
  9. great display of mateship. Sacrificing your result so a team mate medals.
  10. watching a good kid from my home town bring home a bronze last night in the Basketball after a lot of years tying. Good things come to good people.
  11. Why wasn't this around when I had my KE35........ With the rear quarters, found there was enough "flex" in them to push the out far enough to cover a 225/60r13 tyre
  12. tell me more about your evil thoughts.......
  13. we're on like Donkey Kong 😉 needs to be VIC rego though 🙂
  14. guess what arrived today at work
  15. not the prettiest car on the road, but the interior isn't bad. And it's a proper manual!!
  16. You could get yourself in soooo much trouble in that car, licence wise. One of the quickest cars I've been in for a long time, not just in acceleration but also cornering. So refreshing to drive something that is powerful and light.
  17. was lucky enough to take one for a spin at work. So want one...
  18. 5k swap was so good I did it to two rollas. Went from holding 100kmh in 4th up a steep local hill with a 3k to accelerating up it on 5th gear with the 5k. With the competition car a cammed 5k was close to 3 seconds quicker around the local autocross track than the 3k.
  19. Well its official. Worked my first day in a Toyota dealership (after they took over the Holden dealer I worked for). can't wsit to sniff around the spareparts deptartment for some early KE bits Hell I found a genuine VL rear muffler and fuel sender unit in our clean up.......
  20. Had a job working in a mineral sand suppliers lab testing sand. 6 months of that and I had no finger nails/skin left on my hands
