Hey Guys,

I just want to let you know that we now sell the ball cups(rod ends) for the sway bar ends so you can use them on your car. The part # is LOSA4253 with a retail of $3.00. The kit comes with 4 ball ends and two sway bar mounts. These rod ends work great on the camber links and have minimal slop.

Also Aluminum battery trays are in stock here at Horizon West and they are on their way to Horizon Central. Part number is LOSA4309 with a retail of $19.99.

Default Battery Tray

I received mine Friday and used it Saturday. It is absolutely awesome. No need to do any dremeling on the bulkheads or anything like that. The IB3800's dropped right in. Note I did shoe goo them together, but made sure they were tight against each other. Do not shrink wrap on the cell's either.

Will do. The dirt is out the wall is down and carpet is being ordered. So from what I have heard we are going to have an all night test and tune night. Shane wants to have it all going in around 3 weeks.

Thanks RBLove, have been running asphalt but with the new bigger carpet track we will be running alot of mod and 19T.

Later,

Check your droop screws, sounds like you have them cranked down too much...

As the tray is aluminium, do you have any concern that the cells would/could short out in the tray? Maybe I worry too much, but electricity just loves metal bites

Tim,
I haven't run foams on my car yet, but on some cars I've had in the past I needed to unscrew the shock end a turn or two to give me enough travel to maintain ride height. Just a thought......

Check to make sure that your shock towers are in the "low" location. I have had 55mm foams on my car with no issues getting to 5+mm of ride height.....this was one of the first things I checked when I built the car to see how small of tires I can run. If your droop screws are not the issue make sure that the uptravle screws are not hitting the chassis maybe or the sway bar arm is installed the correct way. You should have no problems getting to 5mm with 56mm foams.

What’s the problem exactly? Are you not getting enough ride height or are you putting to much pre-load on the springs and the more pre-load you add is the car's ride height getting not getting higher? When the car was designed I think they looked at this as it was an issue with the XXXS and for me it looks like they fixed it but I’m baffled as to your issue here. I’m here at work and I don’t know how long my shocks are I can get that info later if someone doesn’t supply it sooner.

Kevin K.....Yes to get 5mm ride hight I have to preload the springs and they actually compress. I dont believe they should have to be that way.

The shocks should be about 62mm on carpet.

Timmy....if you are using softer springs they might take some pre-load to bring the car up to ride-height. What pound springs are you using. I know with my car and 50lb fronts and 20lb rear springs I have to compress them some to get to 5mm ride-height. I dont know how much you are having to crank down on the adjuster to get 5mm but you do need to add a little to them. You dont really want any free play in the springs when running foam tires....when you run rubber tires you can get away with that.
