    Karting Returns To Sri Lanka

    Hi devinda, the national kart championship was last run in 2005, the main reason it died was there was no place to run the karts, we last used independence square, the classes that were last run were the yamaha and the international class. The possibility of running a championship again is being looked at but once again location is the problem... if a championship is run the chances are it will be a yamaha class (cos that is the most common engine available in SL and the cheapest available one here). We did run a yamaha go-kart (fitted with a clutch) at the speedrome but it is way too powerful and there is no way u can use even 70% of the power, but it was a fun drift session :-D

    Hi Nuwan, is it that the car you bought converted to single turbo, cos the car i am refering to is still a twin turbo... by the way what colour is your car?

    Yeah the B4 market seems to be a bit risky these days but as i've mentioned earlier if you do find one of those mint condition cars then it's worth it cos it's such a great car... By the way have i met u before?

    actually was using the car a couple of weeks back, true once u drive these types of cars it's hard to go back to n/a, strangely though i'd have to say i prefer driving the subaru around town

    unfortunately the guy who was going to buy my car pulled out at the 11th hour, well the good news is at least that car is back on the road, but it still isn't mine... who knows if it's meant to be i'll get if not at least i'll have the RS.... so can't complain to much

    Yep thats my car a certain car that was once well known, but disappeared from the road for the last few years, although it's back on the road now... want to make it my next project

    Sorry got my heart set on another car if i can't get that it's going to be pretty hard to pry the RS from me

    sorry... when i stated "another 300- car" i meant that one :-P

    B4 Tt

    there's mine, sharksters, Nadeera's old car (last i heard it was crashed & just lying somewhere), a dark purple car, another 300- car and a silver one which was converted to single turbo but that to had crashed and is lying somewhere. So all in all as far as i can track there were 6 cars of which only 4 are confirmed running on the road Also don't get me wrong, the B4 is a lovely car, i would by one if i had the bread and found one that was in good condition, incidentally one was sold recently for 2.7m, lovely car very low mileage, perfect interior all original (even had the original McIntosh radio) and it was a Manual. So really good cars do hold value, it's just really hard to find one!

    Both versions are great cars, but in SL the B4 has had a few probs with the fuel, saying that so have certain wrx, we just don't know about it cos usually when we here of a wrx engine rebuild it's due to the owner over reving it. Most parts between the two cars are interchangeable but certain parts on the RS are cheaper eg. brake pads Also even though the RS is an older version the car's have gone through all the major services, it is shocking to note that most B4's i've seen have clocked almost a 100,000km. This plays a much biggger role rather than year of manufacture when it comes to wear & tear in these cars. As sharkster mentioned the above two guys are the best option at maintaining the cars but it always helps to have a good understanding of these cars which means a lot of time surfing the net :-) My advice if u r going for a B4 look for a Manual TT (as N/A are no fun at all, severly under powered cars), with low milage or with all the major services done. Also see if you can find out about the history of the car either from the agents or from who ever maintained it.

    Need Subaru Guru's Advice

    usually only the subaru's with forced induction are considered as performance car's.... in most cases the n/a engines are little bit down on power to really complement the AWD (although the 2.5ltr is nice) parts are costly but to some extent you can find replacements locally, not too sure about fuel consumption for n/a enigines but i have heard that the n/a B4 is only a bit better than the twin turbo's.

    the 100k service is the same as other cars, only it may a bit more expensive, but as sharkster know's certain parts can be locally sourced. The service includes the timing belt and pulleys associated with it, t belt tensioner and the water pump. Also if not previously done all fluids in the car should be changed (gear oil, diff oil etc...)
