My paint jobs are what I like to call 10/20

They look good 10+ feet away, doing 20+ mph

Actually it doesn't look THAT bad....Think I went from a C to a B status

What happened Harshguy? Did I make you drop your blunt?

I didn't get any stickers with the car so I stole the grill from a Mazda 6 and got some unused Parma Alfa headlight stickers

10/20.....nice

Go to the source. Ask Todd on his Hodgimoto thread.

If you solder them directy to the cell I am willing to bet they will not go in. Even if they do the money I'd pay you would go towards some new electronic gear because you'd short something out against the CF or Aluminum

But you can do it this way (thank you JRXS.com)

If your trying to install the battery and tray as one assembly and it is giving you a tuff time, try instaling the battery first, then the tray after. Not sure if everyone is already doing this?

Earlier there were some posts regarding castor and camber change thru wheel movement/steering. Thought i'd chime in and drop the term SAI, or steering axis inclination. This is how castor works for both stability and feel, since it causes the tires to try and remain pointed straight ahead(more castor, more tendency to stay straight). For steering feel, it effects how much of the tire contacts the surface during turns/chassis roll thru SAI. There is also the weight jacking that occurs because of the axles change in inclination, etc.

The reason castor tuning seems elusive to some, is that it is directly effected by chassis roll stiffness. In other words, less roll in the chassis will like less castor, more roll will like more castor. This is because of tuning and not the surface itself, since tuning can reduce or add roll on any surface if desired......., Hope this helps?.....Jim
