So i sold my evo and bought this....





Used cut evo 4 rear springs on front and corsa b -60 on rear, removed some tatt and added wheels








It had some reverse rake si i added coilover adjusters from my last b too

Plans are 20mm spacers all round and a tidy up

Flicker didnt work

Cage in









A pal helped me bodge



I primed it






Take note how high the rear is here





Removed the axle

Coilies

Machined hubs


Welding







My helper


As it sits now - bit lower which i much prefer





It needs a few bits on the axle done, brackets welding, handbrake, panhard rod fowls at min, and some oil in as i had to drain it

Im also considering selling the let and buying a chevy small block v8 lol

Viva looks cool, wheels make it look like a toy car which is nice.

I wouldn't go v8 in the kadett, even a small block is big and heavy, stick with what you have or go Rover, it's smaller and lighter.

Same here, it ruined the internet car forums, i've not added a single update of my corrado on the corrado club. I reckon Ian @ Corsasport could do something about it. Like starting a hosting site based from an old mattress delivery truck
