Although the battery strap looks cool, I am not going to be using it, strapping tape is the way to go...

For a starter SoCal setup, use 2 of those 2mm thick orange washers underneath the front inner camber link balls. Dave, Rocketron, and I are all running with that setup.
OK, now I see what those are used for. Thanks.

They aren't a total waste of time, they are very handy when it's very dirty with lots of little stones/grit around although I run without them now at most outdoor tracks.

JDM,

I hadn't notice those shorter steerying post. I'll take covers off as I'd rather think those clear coat covers are only for looks.

Default Absolutely right on!

The steering post is short but once the covers are off, everything is in place.

Whatcha doin' building yer kar at werk?!

I got myself a giant beach towel and it's pink believe it or not. It'll show all color varience including those darn clear o-rings and just about any other color out there. My wife thinks it's gayish though. Luckily, my other office is down the hallway so my wife comes in and out with food and beverage so I don't have to get up.

Wife: "honey, how is the car coming along?"
me: "it's coming alright but I'm thristy!"
Wife:"Ok, here's glass of Lemon ice tea"
me: "well, don't just hand it to me, can't you see my hands busy?"
Wife:"here"... <she tilts the glass so I can drink while I'm still wrenching.>

LOL!
