well i rallied a polo 1300 for the last 4 years and the chevette wouldnt have been in the same leauge as it. my chevette had a stage 3 head and running on a webber.

in the polo I won every up to 1400cc award on the rallies that I got to the end and that was alot but the chevette would never do that but each to their own. the bloke i bought it off thought it had plenty of power for a 1300 but it was nothing to the polo

if its fun you want then carry on and if you want to win later on trust me keep the chevette and drop a red top in it and then you will be close to the top.

if i tuned an engine and lighten it etc i think 80-90bhp is more than realistic and i think that would be plenty of power for me, still getting used to rwd and that.

tbh im only 21 now looking at all the top boys doing it they aint youngsters, im looking at getting on the maps aswell.

ha ha im only 23 lol. well it will be good to see another chevette out there
I loved my dads one with a pinto in it. 150-160 bhp at the wheels and lots of sideways but I wrote that off when I did my 1st rally at 18 so maybe its best to stay with the 1256 for a while . lol

just a quick one about insurence, how have you got it, are you using competion car insurence? this is stuff i need to start looking into, i was told about a classic policy with agreed valuation and the option of extra track day/ competion cover, cant remember who it was now, mite of been lancaster

try david Auden Insurance, they have an add on brf. they do a competition car policy not sure about justa modified one but well worth a call, as a company i really rate them and they are competitors.

It really starts to pay for itself if you do 2 day rallies or something like 1 event a month

My insurance for the chevette running many mods + XE running on 45's was slightly dearer than my E36 M3, I think it was just over 500 quid for the two cars.
