Hi,
I'm Graham, based in the Adelaide Hills. I have an SW20 NA which I've had a few years now which I use for hill climb events and MSCASA super sprint. Would be interested in recommendations and advice about local suppliers & knowledge as I'm looking to do some upgrades and mods. Also, would be interested in hitting the track with some other MR2's - and getting more out to the Supersprint which is a great series. Not sure what other local events MR2 drivers are going to?
 
Cheers
 
Graham


Hi Graham,
I get down to Mallala occasionally, but go to the MR2 Wakefield Park Challenge every year

It's a great event if you can make the trip.

Hey @fox welcome :)

Always good to see more members.

Is the SW20 really that much higher than the aw11? I'm already scared ****less of breaking my front fender with how low it is :|

Hey guys, just bought my first MR2 off a mate of mine. Red JDM SW20, hardtop, manual, turbo. Not sure exactly the year since the plate in the frunk doesn't seem to list it but Im guessing pre 94. Its getting towed to my mechanic on Tuesday or Wednesday so should be on the road very shortly. It sat dormant for a while so hopefully I'll just be able to throw some fresh rego on it without having to go over the pits. She has some pretty rough paint (clear coat peeling) but I don't mind cos it seems like a bit of a bargain. Been reading some of the build threads on here, including a couple of local ones, so Im pretty hyped, cant wait to drive the thing!

Thanks rynex, will definitely post some pics soon. She wont be winning any beauty pageants right now but I'll probably start a build thread do detail the journey.
 
Looking forward to being part of the scene, have already had local members reaching out to offer helpful advice. I'd heard that the MR2 community was really helpful & welcoming, was nice to have that confirmed. Cheers!

Hey there,
 
Welcome back.  There are a few MR2's in SA.  But you are right, no MR2 club.
 
I just googled historic car rego in SA.
