Mango Season

I wandered down to the local drift track (full lock motor sport park aka. Archerfield) and was pleasantly surprised to spot this KE2X corolla out the front

Sporting14x7’s (unknown brand rims) with Falken 194/45 R14 tyres. A rare site indeed in OZ seeing the smallest profile off the shelf for most R14’s is a 60 profile if you’re lucky.

The car its self was rather tidy with what seamed like its original paint job helping its nick name along, fender mirrors and all the trim was intact. The owner had converted the front end to ke70 struts to get around the problem of ever so hard to find 4×110 PCD rims in decent size/offset and had axles in 4×114.3 in waiting for the rear (hence not running the mesh rims all round)

The owner told me he had plans on running coilovers to put the car an inch or two lower, wider rims with bolt on over fenders to suit and 185/45 tyres (if I remember correctly)

The fitment on the front was nice in stock guards so im looking forward to seeing pics of him running the mesh all round or his next set of rims.

Sorry about the photo quality as they were taken on my mobile phone.
