Hey Henry. You are right. I haven't messed with the ride height yet. I am planning to do that during the week, since I am in the bay for the weekend. I'll definitely try to break them in before I go too crazy. With any suspension set-up, there are pro's and con's with where the dampening **** is located. It is a pain in the rear if you have to pull the seat or get under car, so there isn't really much of a reason to complain. I'll probably crank it two notches down when I get back to Davis. I figure if I auto-x, I'll crank those suckers up before my run. It'll be fun.

Haha. 245 in the future... when I have more power and get the fenders rolled or flared.

Oh... and money.

Next Up:

Pads, rotors, 4 pots, or something

Then in the near future, a swap.

I like my bumper. Everyone else already has the more "aggressive" style front fender. I think my bumper kind of looks like the R34 front. I dunno. Anyways... as for the wheels, those are Rota Subzero's. I actually have two sets. One set is my all-season set (Gun Metal), and the set I currently have on is the chocolate bronze that the former owner painted. That set is running the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D3 tires or something.

Went auto-crossing in Stockton today. That was fun. Haha. Suspension was awesome. The ride wasn't too bad. It is definitely bumpy, but I don't really mind that much. I can't wait until the next event.

Unlike my stock suspension, when in a turn where I poke at the gas, instead of being all smooth like the stock suspension, the coilovers make it really noticeable. I think next time, I'll just leave my foot on the gas and see what happens. During most of the runs, I was actually sliding all over the place. Haha. It could be the tires, or the suspension, or me being a noob at auto-x'ing. Really looking forward to the next event when I can test it.

An Update:

I went to GST today and those guys are really awesome. As for the trailing arm thing, they took a look at it and they couldn't find anything wrong. Still not sure though. It's all cool. +1 for them though.

Anyways... Mike... don't look at me... my car isn't for sale....



yet...
