Hello everyone!
My Name is Jan van den Hoek and i am from the netherlands.
I've owned all kids of cars since i was 19, but keep coming back to Suzuki somehow.
The first was a Suzuki Alto, wich was converted to GTi.

Just before i started the swap, i bought this for a daily:

Salto introducing. Foto-AKCE43RS

loved that car.. then i was fooled into becoming more sensible with my cars, so bought a boring baleno estate, hated it ditched girlfriend, bought nissan s13, crusty as fook, bought toyota soarer, wanted lighter and cheaper, bought FC rx-7 but couldnt finish for my first time-attack season, so bought an mk1 gti:

Salto introducing. Foto-NHUHF6QK

did a season of time-attack with it, was a nice learning experience, but wanted to go faster.
the mk1 went to my mate and i bought a nice '95 mk3 gti with a gt1549s turo kit attached:

fixed it (box and clutch were dead and front was banged up, and body rust was fixed), stripped it, caged it, installed seat and harness..

all stickered up with r888 tires..

and hit the track in it at Assen tt circuit:

thanks mate!

about the wheels..
They made them in 4x114, only they are very very rare.
These are Postert special edition wheels from the mid 80's..(postert is a german tuner who did mazda and toyota i think in the 80's)

i posted a cheeky bid(complete lowball) and got the deal done very very cheaply, so got lucky for a change.. Very Happy

thanks! i go back and forth to the uk quite a lot, mostly to buy parts or cars.. last car i bought there went up in flames after a mile actually Wink

Salto introducing. Foto-8IRCM7QD

i actually never blown up a gearbox as i'm quite gentle with it, and the ACT clutch allowes a bit of slip.
i'm waiting for my phantom grip to arrive now, ive been looking at gripper or some other lsd, but the prices are a bit too much for now.
i hope the phantom grip doesnt change this, because exploding boxes are bad.. hmm-kay
and i have 3 spare boxes lying around aswell, so i hope to make it till end of the year with those Very Happy

Been a while..

Finally the back panels are mounted and painted.. I test fitted my future daily wheels (15x9) and mounted a race heater, new meters, new switches, aftermarket window washer system and more..(went a bit of picasso on my centre dash panel)

Well, I blew the turbo two days before the last round of time attack so had to compete with the MK1.. I love to push subarus and other high power cars through the corners.. before getting blown away at the straights

But.. my phantom grip is in the gearbox of the turboswift right now, and the rear spring setup has been modified to take universal springs.

Aaand the mk1 is on carbs now.. so there is some progression..
