Yup, as Mark mentioned, they are the same number. Running change I guess.

Don't be sorry... Should be a good car. Wait a few months and give it a go. Let us know.

Did you fix the 2 speed shoe spacing between bell housing? Perhaps the LSN is still rich.

Cool.

I would not use that... The drive train is already very free as it is. Belts don't come cheap.

I have seen them. They are so so. They still do break on hard impact. I would think they are pretty reasonable. Not excellent. I would wait for the Serpent one...

Yes, I needed to do that. It was initially tight. I use a plastic hammer tip and a 2 mm allen to tap the pins into the oneway. After a while of driving, I found the pins to be just right. No need to force it in again.

Use the shock collars. Set ride height first before setting the droop, tweak and then the camber and toe in / out. That is because the shock settings affect the camber.

I believe I need to cut my alum post that hold lower and upper plate by 1.25mm if not mistaken (might want to ask D, he remember everything ) in order to have the PERFECT fit.

Ok.. got to go to Airport now.. dont post too much D, I find it hard to catch up this threads..

Smaller gives you smaller top speed ! Tire rollout is just that. Smaller also gives you better acceleration.

correct?
Yup. 62 mm is the tire diameter.

Yup.

No need to take the front bumper off ! Just use a 2mm allen and fit it in on the end of the sway bars. The end of the blade cup / ball front sway bars have a groove that fits a 2 mm allen. Turn it to your liking. Make sure the grub screw that holds the front sway bars are just tight enough that it permits you to turn it. Not too loose though.

a car with a larger number for tire rollout will move more down a line with one revolution of the engine... right? so therefore, larger values are better? or not?
