Re: 4cly and 32\'s witha stick

Well, on the highway it sucks, but I have a 4 cyl running 33's, and I know of 4 cyl's running Q78's. Not a lot of power in the mud, but all else is fine, very capable rigs. As to the highway, you may lose 5th gear a lot, but there's always 4th. You wanna see gutless, I know of many Zuki's running 33's, with the stock 1.3L (64 hp), now that's gutless!

I had a 95 that ran on 30's and I wasn't too thrilled to drive on the highway.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] As long as I could keep in somebody's draft I could maintain the speed limit. If I went up a bridge or a hill, I might as well drop it in 4th. In town driving was fine and on the trails was fine.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
