    Thinking about a 60.

    I'm giving serious consideration to buying a 60. Got 3 80s and a nice mk4 hilux now it always had a soft spot for the 60. Not ready to buy just yet but just putting feelers out as to whats out there and how much. Ideally a rolling resto job not a basket case.

    24v pump tweak!

    Had a guy fiddle with the pump on my 24v auto today. My god what a difference. No flat spot from standing start and 0 to 60 in 10 seconds. It flys now. Videoed the speedo from standing tonight but cant get it to load. Keeps pulling all the way well past legal limits. Mid range is awesome to.
