I really really really want a S1 Rallye as a daily driver once the Chargers on! :lol:

The lad that did my torsion bar was sorting a S1 Rallye with the valver engine in, was white too :insanity: , and only wanted £2000 for it, i wish i had 2k! :cry: I even thought for a bit do i sell the S2 and get that.

The S1's weight with a 1.6 16v engine would be a right larf. :insanity:

This is the S1

Just needed a good detail! :)

So i think i may start saving a little to get a S1 i don't think it would have to be a 16v converted one, as im sure just having the 1.3 100Bhp would be good enough for a daily, so i may just buy a cheap one and sort it out :) .

And i also know scott really wants one too! :) Do it scott DO IT! :D

S2 = Poor mans GTi

S1 = Rally Homologated specialist car.


Buy my GTi Ry. £2k and its yours.

GTi brakes
GTi suspension
GTi bumpers
GTi steering

Instead of using the 16v head they slapped an 8v on it from a Saxo VTR made you wind the windows up yourself and called it a drivers car :P

In seriousness, is the shell homologated? :?

Matt how does yours handle now compared to the standard alloys and tyre size it had on previously? :) Just curious.

And also while I'm here, have you been in a rallye (s1 or s2) with standard suspension before?

My Rallye had Standard suspension when i got it, handled really good, back end tends to get light tho! :0 :insanity: :chill: And S1's, i've only ever been in a slammed 16v'd one! :chill: :chill:

The C5's Rolling Radius is the same as the 14's as they had huuuuge tyres on them and where scary on corners as they tended to fold. Alot more sturdy with the C5's on with the unsprung weight reduced.

14's would have been good if i had put lower profile tyres on that where over a better quality as the Nankangs where to hard compound and didn't grip well! :)
