Okay, so next question - one hole adjustment would be equivalent to approximately how much oil adjustment?

I LIKE those shocks. . .just want to know how much adjustment = how much adjustment. . .

what is "the fix"? I went to e-bay and typed in " the fix tc3" and nothing. Is "the fix" to strengthen the shock tower/tranny case? I'm all ears on that!

Clicker shocks have a standard setting which is position 1. Then they will click 3 times for a total of 4 settings
The first setting with 10 wt. oil is around 30 wt. and it raises 10 to 20 wt. per click. But if thats not enough you can dial them closer with what wt. you want. I use 10 wt. on my car. The front shocks I usually set at position 3 or click 2, and the rear I use position 1 , no click. This seems to have the same dampening as using 60 wt. front and 30 to 35 wt. rear on the AE shocks. Email [email protected], he can tell you the exact wt difference from each click. If you have a LHS that stocks CRC stuff you can get the shocks some cheaper. My LHS sells them for $20 a set. They are a bitch to build sometimes do to the dreaded eclip thats holds the pistons in place, but worth the effort to me. They are a perfect fit too, They can be adjusted to about 65mm in length instead of what? 67mm on the AE shocks. I like 65mm length better.

Some one needs to make a titanium version of the fix... like a titanium countersunk screw, that would make it stronger but more importantly lighter...

I've been putting off running my new NTC3 because The Fix hasn't showed up yet.
GO ahead & run it. Diff cases are only $5.00 each Believe me I know. I've already broken one.

The TR is a good motor you should enjoy it. Other than that I'd try the car as is and see how you like it. You can always upgrade later.

what brand of titanium pivot balls are you using? as far as i know, titanium should break not, bend... my friend as bent his, although he can't remember what he put in... hardcore or AE?

i have AE in my car and it always break, never bends...

about the slipper clutch? will it replace the whole steering rack assembly? can i get the part number... thanks...

Make sure that the toe in or out is the same on each side. Try Adjusting the STeering left and right on your controller. What controller do you have?

You might have the servo arm and the steering link turnbuckle set incorrectly...
