Exclamation Wot, no X-1/9 fans?

I thought people liked Italian mid-engined sports cars! Doesn't anyone care about the car that showed the way to Pontiac (Fiero) and Toyota (MR2)?

I used to have one.
It had a 2L Lancia engine in it it used to haul arse. I used to have fun and play with Subaru WRX's and alike.
They go well if you set them up right ie suspention, wheel alignment, brakes.
I used to have a lot of trouble with braking drive shafts though.
But thats all fun and games when owning a fiat...

Re: Wot, no X-1/9 fans?

I'm fixing to buy a Bertone X-1/9 in two weeks! Needs a radiator,fan,and some other type of cooler(will figure it out when I get it). Where is the best place to get parts for them?

Racing a Honda is like being in the special olympics even if you win your still retarded!

Try Bayless Fiat, and Vickers, and there is another one you can check out, I just don't remember the name of. Just remember there is a lot of stuck that you will have to replace that is not Fiat Specific, so check around before you buy.

Call Vick Autosports and have them build you an X-1/9 engine... you could pull maybe 150hp out of the 1500cc easily... or you could get a turbo off an European 1100 or Uno... gotta know someone in europe for that tho
