Thanks

We have a very good plating shop we go to. The goal was to make them look nice, and different from other parts on the market. If we have to, we will leave them raw.

They are still going to be different in the fact that they are adjustable.

My thinking is one thing that might have solved the problem of no parts for the cars is Xray could have held back on releasing the car until they had enough parts produced to ship along with all kits to the stores.

Now my choice is I would rather have the car sooner then later and take the chance that I might be out a couple months as stores don't have parts.

Came back from a 2 year break and one of the reason I came back was because of how nice the T2 looked. So I'm very happy I was able to get the car when I did other wise would have had to dust my old XXX-S from two years ago, as no other cars really excite me to purchase them like the T2 did.

My car got just got the beats in the mains this last Friday after getting TQ in stock, felt like everyone was aiming for me and nothing broke. Did make a brace for the rear shock tower and that might have been the saving grace so far for that piece. Also feel very important to use set screw next to the screw for the upper link on rear carriers.

Must say Thanks to Xray for awesome car

Maybe a bit over kill, but car is underweight anyways. Someone on the T2 thread started making them for sale also. The first time I read someone broke a shock tower, went to my garage and made them up as didn't want to take the chance and break it myself.

RAcing in the uk is great.. ice cold weather and i had some serious issues with cold thumbs this weekend....

still never broke a damn thing, even after a few" thats got to have been broken after that " type incidents...

car is very resilient and fast.

So if you americans keep breaking it, then all i can say is .....drive better as it cant be drive slower...:P

Default Thanks....I'm using the foam setup sheet.

I may try dark blue springs in the rear. The car seems to want to screw it's self into the ground if that makes any sense. Steering input must be smooth and it's hard to drive for me. Over rotating with front violet and rear white springs. I know I could go less camber, but I'm only running 1.5 front/rear now. I want even tire wear. I need to get purple/plaids tires to work. Longer wear, less re-adjusting the RH and droop. Again I just don't understand why Andrews would run so many shims on the outsides of the tierods. They are shimming the ouside up to the tire rim front/back. What does this do? It seems to me a low inner link and a high outside link would make the car roll more. Why would this be desired? My car seems to roll too much with the stock setup and lighter springs. Just tring to figure out this thought process.
