  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Good upright stance like 4x4's/van. Light and easy with power a plenty. Pulls in 5th from 1200rpm (just below 30mph) without issue so most driving is like an automatic. Gets noisy at 65-75 but over that its a little less so. I still believe its way under geared. Currently checking to see if another Toyota gearbox or ratios will fit. (like the Corolla T180 or MR2).

    What's it like to park?

    Very easy due to its shortish wheelbase.
