Yeah, me too. Are you one of those guys who decides to change the stock set-up, before you even try it. Or one of those guys, who tries to set-up your new car, like your old car?

well everything really, the diffs were annoying (tried the AE spring trick...didnt work). bevels kept breaking when i used one-way(on the littlest knocks to).

my dad has quit racing now so he has given me his t1r...and i just find xrays to be so reliable

if anyone is interested in the pro4, i can stop the auction early if needs be

I am changing from 4, to 2 caster c hubs and I noticed one of the 75122 flange pipes is broken around the top. Go figure!

I installed 2.0 rear, and 1.5 front pivot blocks, with stock spacing 2mm front, and 2.5mm rear.
I can't get the ride height less than 6mm. Any thoughts?

What SPRINGS are you using?

With the kit springs, I can get my ride height down to about 1mm with the collars all the way up on Rubber Tires.

Thanks guys, after a
few minutes it dawned on me. I put on
some "sweet,low profile" rims to take
some pix of a new body. They were not
race rims.


How would "Homer" say it?
DOOOO!
Can you spell reeb?

Not sure if adding preload would work, but if you weren't running sway bars then adding sway bars would stiffen the car up.
