Default Typo correction

Typo: I meant 1.2 mm. Car runs great boosting 11 psi. Sure wish I would have spent some money on a stage 2 spec clutch. Everybody out there if you are gonna run 3 inch exhaust piping, you got to get a high flow catco catalytic converter. Just smogged it-CO blew a .00 average is 10.

Do you have any rubbing problems with those big wheels and tires? Especially the front under heavy high speed braking into turns?

Red face Do you have any rubbing problems with those big wheels and tires? Especially the fron

the front is free and clear of any rubbing, the back i might have to roll the fender but i haven't seen any tire damage yet and ive accidently hit some pot holes here and there.

everything said and done the cars drives great the staggered effect has definetly increased my turning rate, but for the rear i haven't felt it grab as well as i hoped but than again it is getting cooler here at night as low as 56 degrees.

im definetly lookin in on a better suspension to firm things up a bit but not as extreme as yours Spud. i think tokico makes adjustable struts to work with TEMS, and id like to get front and rear strut bars.

p.s i think im an idiot i used hi-temp rtv on my egr flanges and i think the exhaust gas is starting to burn through!!!!!!!!! i'll never get my hands clean.

My guess is if you went lower profile tires, lowered and stiffen the back you may get better grip. (your rear looks a little jacked up, too light?) I'm wanting to go to 18" wider and lower profile in the back (maybe lower profile in the front, but stay with 17's) but it's a fine line between more rubber but keeping a low center of gravity without rubbing or rolling the fenders. There is also some trick to set-up between ride height, pre-load, and damper to keep good grip on the rears. I'm still playing with that. Probably will also get a set of proper track wheels and tires just for track days. Maybe not race tires but Toyo RA1's I can put on and drive to the track.
All it takes is time and money...if I have the time I don't have the money.
Keep up the good work!

your turbo is dirty, should clean it or get a new to get better boost or spools.
