I run mine on sugared blue groove w/5k. You may want to try 7 or 10.

Just finished mine up today. Took a different route running inline, had to lay my RSX on it's side but it worked out well for wiring the motor up. Fan blows on the motor too which kills two birds.

Did the back gunmetal with a flat finish using a Valspar glass frost spray on the exterior, stuff is bullet proof too.

Hey guys, I ordered two sets of 8.5mm clamping hexes (71014) along with the clamping front axle (71013) for the front. When installing the front hexes onto the front axles, I noticed that the hole where the pin goes in sits extremely close to the bearing so the hex can't really 'snap' into place like on the rear. Is this normal or am I missing something? Once the screw is tightened down the hex seems to be pretty snug but I was just concerned that it might pop off when driving the car.

Where is it going to go? The wheel nut holds everything on and there is no torque through the hub like on the rear.
