LOL new some one was gonna say something like that. Valcrow (carn't spell) gloves and gumboots are great gives you extra grip.
Another tip: take the sheep to the edge of a cliff they push back harder.
Got any more??
Cars are quite nice don't know about any body else but i was disipointed with the latest autosaloon (Auckland). But the final battle will be good cars from all over NZ

Lol. I cruised around the South Island before. Down the west coast and up the east. Bypassed Invercargill cause it's like 3 hours out of the way going to Dunedin, lol. Got pics of your ride?

Hey there. I'm from auckland NZ. Just bought a new Sport 20 FS-ZE 4WD, to replace my dear old Familia GT 1992. Its amazing what 10 years of development can do to a car. The Sport 20 handles much better, and does it all without the bone jarring ride of my old GT.



Current Familia





Previous Familia – I hope its gone to a good home

Actually a Sport20. Big differences to our SP20's which are 2WD only.

Thanks

Good to know. What are the key differences between the SP20 and Sport 20? I read somewhere about higher compression...

Didn't know your guys SP20's are 2wd only. All our BJI and BJII hatchback Sport20's and SP20's whatever you call them are 4WD. Only 2 litre 2WD's we have here are SP20 sedans, which are quite rare.

As far as I know SP20 is FWD only and Sport20's are all 4WD. No differences between nations just 2 different models. We simply got SP20's in both hatch and the sedan.

I dont know all the differences for certain, but I think our engines are almost identical, gearbox is different and I suspect the suspension would be different, at least on the rear.

Also I've only ever seen BJ1 Sport20's, never a BJ2. Whereas SP20's came out in BJ1, BJ2 and BJ2-J48 models.

Not in Japan - they're all Sport20s.

Even the FWD. Makes it a bugger when i search for parts as '4WD' isn't always written in an easily understood translatable form in japanese

SP20s DID NOT come out in BJ1 guise, only BJII and BJII-J48 for Astinas and BJII-J48 for Proteges. The SE20 Protege was the Protege equivelant in the pre-J48 era. it had different trim, centre dash, headlights and Mazdaspeedish looking wing.
