I have to ask. Does your xr4 have racing stripes? If so i will give the advice that i always give. Drop it on its arse and get some decent offset wheels.

If it doesn't have racing stripes, then get some racing stripes, then drop it on its arse and get some decent offset wheels.


Yes it does have fulli hektic racing stripes lol
I shouldnt be bagging it out, it actually is a really good little car.

all threads with any female activity always go off topic with a stupid number of posts, some being so cheesy its cringe worthy !

dont mod the xr4, just trash it. stock buzz boxes are so much fun because you can actually redline them without reaching warpspeed on the streets. i loved my lil suzuki :)

If everyone has finished trying to score can we get back on topic...

Mandy I was looking at buying one of these a couple of months ago I even joined a XR4 forum (bugger deleted the link).

The first thing everone on the forum was doing was ditching the factory air box for an aftermarket setup like a K&N. Apperently Ford designed the system to restrict the power (around 10kw).

I even went out and had a look at one with Zei. I noticed the bushes on the front suspension were rather large rubber items and would probably benefit with replacing with Nolathane.

I was a little concerned I wouldn't be able to make enough power to give me some jollies. Also decided to stop playing silly buggers for a bit and concentrate on buying a house. Plan to get a S15 down the track.
