    BX rally car


    Hey Shane, you'll love this story, some people I know in
    Bachus Marsh,(you may know them too) there into classic
    rallies and rally all sorts of things, Cortinas, 504's, Datsun's,
    in an event a couple of weeks back ran there road car, a stock
    standard BX19GT, bolt on driving lights and a halda and hey
    presto, instant rally car. How did they go I hear you ask? First
    outright of course. The BX bought shame to GT Falcons, some very
    hot Datsuns and Escorts, but we all knew it would , didn't we?
    See Ya
    David.

    Hi Dave,

    sounds about right... Heeee,heee, the 19GT is the lowest powered 1.9litre BX as well... Being the carby fed motor. The TRI's were the injected ones.

    seeya,

    Hi Shane
    Yep your right, thats what makes it more amazing, it was only a 19GT,
    Apparently they were clocking 160-170kph on dirt and one 30km long down hill section spectators said you could clearly see the disc glowing red, there going to bring the car into work soon for a check up because they are running again in a few weeks.
    See ya,
    David.

    AS a member of your family you, should know that I am already aware of this.

    Apparently this BX has an after market kit from England on it

    Hi guys,
    The car at work is a 19TRI with a 4 headlight conversion and aftermarket front spoiler, probably from England, the owner bought it like that, apart from that its a normal TRI.
    See ya's,
    David.

    Hi all, Apart from "B" Group Rally, did anyone campaign any BX's in Rally events when they were current models (particularly the 16V) & if so has anyone seen a website on this.
    I know Alex Fritz was doing up one to racs over in Macedonia but with all the wars & strife going on at the border, that project may be on hold.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Hey everyone just thought i would let u know that even though the Bx GT is the lowest powered Bx19 imported to australia, it is still faster than the injection models (bar the 16valve) as it has no cat.

    The GT is not the lowest powered 1.9, since it has 1 HP more than a 19 TRi, at least in Europe, since it's downtuned due to emission regulations and has a KAT. Also the GT has carbs, which means more torque than injection. I think (know) that the GT will outrun the TRi, especially when top speed is not important; like rallye.
    The best rallye BX would be the BX Sport, which will outrun any BX on short distances. The 16v would win in the long run on top speed. But who needs that in a rallye...
