Cool cars. Keep the blue & yellow ones. Using the red as a donor.

I agree with Adam on this one.

Red one for spares, keep the yellow for daily, and rebuild the blue one to its former glory :)

Cheers guys, I think for the time being I'll go with that. I didn't want to strip the red one but I guess it makes more sense to strip a write off than tearing apart a perfectly good car :D
And TADO, do it! ;) It's expensive but its worth it. I can help you with the designs as I done all mine myself if you want!

They're all EN07 engines, aren't they?

I quite like the red one, actually. Mainly because it has that history behind it. Gotta keep the blue one though! Yellow one is rather tasty, too. I can't help you decide, haha.

Are they all FWD?

Unfortunately the blue and yellow ones are running EN07E engines, and the red one has an EN07Y. Theyre essentially the same as each other except one has dished pistons and side entry inlet manifold for the supercharger.
As for fwd, the blue and yellow are switchable between front and four wheel drive, they have a massive red button on the gearstick :D The red one is full time 4wd as the CVT 'box is so big it cant mate up to the front diff. (It has a second, miniature propshaft to link it up somehow!)

Interesting! I'm guessing the red one has a different chassis layout because of the additional power being produced by the supercharger?

You would think so, but no. The only difference in the chassis is purely for looks, like the 2door instead of 4door and rear panel for the wider lights. Underneath its identical to the others!
The vivio was designed with Safari rallying in mind, so even the base models have braces and strengthening welded in everywhere, which is probably why they didnt change the chassis layout

Man, if the rx-r engine could be swapped easily and it fit the manual gearbox i could be intrested in it, or even in all the car :P
