How do i get my car clean???
I am running it rich at the moment(2 turns out) (still on its 1st bottle of 5%) and alot of oil is comming out the exaust. this causes dirt and bits of sand and general crap to stick to the car in all the nooks and cranneys. how do i keep it clean? or clean it properly?


ALSO should i cut a hole in the windscreen for better ventialtion for the motor? it is a supra body. If i cut one in the front windscreen should i cut another in the rear? because there is quite a gap between the ground and the bodyshell at the back and i thought the hot air will just go out that way.


Thanks

also on the S everything is on the sides... because the belt down the middle. With the rr everything is located further in which i would imagine gives it better cornering characteristics

deane - use so metho to clean your car

or u can use wd40 but be carefull with wat you put it on coz it can carrode some plastics

You could do it, but youd need to machine a whole new shaft and then fit an sg shaft engine to take either the v-1-r or rr clutch/centax etc.

Well you can't get your car too clean because all the smoke from the tune pipe goes to your right side of your car. Just put a the body shell on at all times if you want it to be more clean with less of the fuel.
You might also be too rich with that much fuel coming out.

Yeah you should cut the windscreen. Front and back, also the side windows. Who cares about the looks of the shell too much, just get proper ventilation so your engine doesn't die out.

well if your still breaking in your surposed to be rich

to stop the castor oil going on the car go to your LHS and buy a elbo the same as the one that is on your air filter and stick that on your pipe... its a perfect fit and works great then u can just adjust it so the castor oil and smoke hit the ground
