Funny you should say that - a mate has a Cappucino and another mate just missed out on buying a Beat.

LOL, i'm not sure it'd spool it.

It uses a IHI RHB31 stock. To give you an idea of the size, check the pics in this link

Ha, already bought a few bits, but mostly this will be a 'fix it up to be like new' build.


This one's a bit unusual - it's a normal AZ-1, but with Mazdaspeed front bumper, bonnet and rear wing. Usually they're all colorcoded to the color of the car, but the bumper on this one is painted like the normal AZ-1s, which i don't mind TBH.

Needs a few seals, some bits of trim, a new driver's seat...oh, and a new turbo.

Wheels too, but not really sure what to get as it's a weird fitment - 6" wide and a +45ish offset is the widest i can go. And it's 4x114.3, which is annoying!

What about rims for old Starlets and the like? Weren't they 4x114.3 in sizes like 12/13"?

With this thing weighing all of 720kg, i'll probably end up with something forged in 14x6, as that keeps a decent tyre size, and less weight is always good. I'm thinking gunmetal grey TE37s, or maybe CE28Ns. But they're like $1400-1600 - used!

TE37s are a bit overdone but they look great on most cars. CE28N would be the one I go with.

Yeah, there's actually a large space behind the engine (under the radiator expansion tank) that's just empty. Partially due to the Fujitsubo muffler though.
