Re: Sedici tripod

Wow. What engine powers the Sedici

When i heard someone talking about the Sedici, i thought they meant the 4 x 4 Fiat. Now i know that its a Uno, but know nothing about it.

Re: Sedici tripod

Haha Uno? This is the Tipo section. Its a Tipo Sedicivalvole (16V). We dont get the Fiat Sedici (4x4) to get confused. We only have the original Fiat Sedici(valvole)

Re: Sedici tripod

to be fair it is missing two doors so it is harder to recognise it as a tipo . but the tipo section is too big a clue to miss

Hey mate, you're a Stilo driver! The successor of the next Tipo design! Get in shape!

You forgot the Bravo/a...

Getting a Tipo on 3 wheels isn't that difficult. Stiff chassis and stiff ARB brings the back wheel up under fast, tight corners every time.

Re: Sedici tripod

stilo is an inferior car though. it lacks independent rear suspension! it's not exactly well noted for its handling either well at least i haven't read much about people on the subject. and as for competition the tipo is very successful!! BTCC, DTM, virtually every touring cars going tbh, has the stilo even been raced?
only thing that the stilo has is a better safety rating. and the three door isn't too bad looking though.

Re: Sedici tripod

The stilo isn't that bad handling. It's as independent as the tipo with its huge ARB. Stilo's main problem is weight.

rich - it's enough to get the wheel up. You have to remember I've mostly been driving estates until the bravo

Re: Sedici tripod

its not possible to have it on 3 wheels, jack it up on the side at the front that side will be up -you can change front and rear wheels at the same time. Jack it up one side at the rear and both rear wheels are off the ground.
Trying to jack it off the ground on all 4 wheels is scary business as its so rigid it can be off the ground with only 3 stands, its like a bloody heavy see-saw!! Std car was very flexible, when it was being fitted for the cage the prebent parts didnt fit properly when it was tilet over as it flexed so much. Makes you understand how much stress the glass is under!!

Sorry for the offtopic again!
Yes, I didn't mentioned the bravo/a because it's more of its own (i don't know if i'm saying it right).
But the Stilo has almost the same edge as the Tipo!

Mine lifts the rear wheels when jacked at the front.. Maybe yours was made of aluminium?
