Hi guys,i used to own a few Corsa's years ago so was regularly on this forums and loved reading the build threads on as title says some track focused X16XE/C16XE.

There was 2 especially i can no longer find the threads,white B with C sxi wheels in black and stripped inside and a Brocade yellow on with grey Mo 5"s.

Any help finding the threads would be awesome.

Thanks

I loved that car, it sounded like a type-R or some manner of super sports bike.

I still have my 1.6 going on 1.8 on throttle bodies, trouble is I feel like a bit of a dinosaur. A stock vxr engine would give more power for same or less money. But I anyone is still interested I still have a spare setup

Andy's was blue I think? Seem to remember him painting it after an accident but I think it stayed a similar colour.

Was Seth still referencing a white one? I thought he was going off topic and just reminiscing!

all i can remember is a b road, a dash mounted rev counter, almost 9k rpm and epic sound.

At that moment I realised i did not want a LET or C20XE and also realised i did not have the funds to build such an epic 1.6
