so i went and disassembled as much as needed. now the driveshaft will barely move and it is centered within the drive cup.

but the noise is still there...

2. the front upper arms. they have those little clips to adjust caster. but on mine, there is just a tiny gap, maybe like 1/16" so that the arm can slide back and forth... i thought about buying like a thin enough washer, or maybe a set of those clips... but at $6 for a set of those... sigh...
Sorry I forgot to answer to this
On the steering some of it come from the steering post, there was a ball bearing kit for the ultra series, I got the part # from SNR #31130,
http://www.nitrohouse.com/advanced_s...ee3231fa967bfd
The rest comes from the endlinks themselves ,maybe a dubro ball end ?
The front upper arms, yes I put some clutch bell shim washers, that did the trick, I did the samething to the rear since I have the rear pbs and torsion swaybar on mine car, I also run the front lower pin arm holder in the rear,since I dont need adjust toe via the rear lower pin arm,this sets the pins up just like the front so you dont have that awkward angle and allows the pin to rotate for less binding in the suspension,PBS rear is so much better, car is way more planted,torsion swaybar is so much better also

%Tower finally got back to about special ordering the thunder tiger Subaru bodies.

Quote:
I am writing in reference to your recent inquiry regarding special ordering the Thunder Tiger parts. The PD1792-Subaru Impreza clear body is $27.99, PD1793-Subaru Impreza Painted body set is $39.99 and PD1794-Impreza Clear Body with decal is $33.99. It is available for a special order and would cost $ plus any postage that the manufacturer may charge to us. All special orders must be placed on a credit card, are non-returnable and cannot be canceled once ordered. I do not have an estimated time of arrival from the manufacturer. Please let us know if you would like for us to place an order for you. We appreciate your time and your business with us.
If anyone is interested PM me and ill ask them about making multiple orders... say by the end of this week, like Friday...

I've been looking at these gtp3e's and I don't see how my fleet could go without one of these jewels! LOL Plus there's a onroad race track near by.

Thanks

Get away from those tires and run these onroad pre-mounted tires.I run these on my Vorza and GTP2E.(soft compound is the best and they dont wear fast at all)

...........or IMPANEMAS! Approx same price. $60-ish for all 4. Looks the exact same as the ALPHAS. Either way... I agree!
