If I got all of them do I win $66 off of my next order and free shipping?
Oh man way off .. lol
The brace isn't really a 'brace'. The brace that goes between the rear bulkhead will soon be replacing the 'brace' in the front, and two will be going in the rear. This way I can adjust the arms easier from the outside instead of loosening the bolts from between the bulkheads which is a pain. Right now in the front I am using T2 style alum holder (302033
)which does not have threads like the older FK04 ones (302032
). The rest of them I will drill the threads out to save some $.
I pretty much replaced the button heads with Socket head cap screws as it is easier to use my ball driver on everything that way.. Wheel screws, Motor screws, Toe adjustment etc.
The front bumper was made out of old Carbon fiber, drilled and tapped to accept the sway bar using mounts from the rear sway bar.
The diffs and steering post had to be flipped to run the servo on the other side. So now I have to use the FK05/older T2 Multi diff in the front. 305102
I have had this car for 3 years or so.. I had all the different top decks for it, split, solid and wide solid. When running TransAm the wide one just seemed to work the best.
The Alum stuff .... well thats for 'other' hacks and to make sure I finish the race .. lmao
The old alum shock bodies are just that... OLD! They haven't been available for about 3 years. The shock ends, shafts and spring retainers are all T2 stuff. Oh .. and the supension holders in the front are T2 also. This allows for 1mm of wheel base adjustment front to back and widens the front by about 2mm. TA wheel base is narrow in the front. When you add toe to the rear it makes the rear even wider yet
