I will need a power adder eventually to keep up with more built cars. But nitrous isn't the greatest for road racing.

All I got was just sound from those video links but I'll take a guess and say sequential blinkers.

When are you going to install the coilovers?

Yea it was sequentials. And i have all the parts for them now, so i'm wanting to do it when i have a few days off from school next week (we get a few days off after mid terms). So i am home Wednesday until Sunday. I'll see how hard it'll be, i looked through the instructions and since i'm using KONI shocks/struts i get to skip a lot of the harder steps since they are more friendly with the coilovers.

I've always thought just so it right the first time so I'm not spending extra money. That's why I've never even touched the shocks and struts and springs, just put all that toward these.

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could just bring the whole car into your living room and work on it in there? So much nicer laying on the padded carpet than that hard concrete.
Those look like they'll install pretty easy.

What are the U-joints for?

That's why you just put carpet down in your garage.

You can do that also. Best way for heat is insulate the inside part of the garage door. Then a portable ac unit in the garage. Just have to drill a hole through one of the walls for the hose to suck in air from the outside.

I love it when guys set up "housekeeping" in a warehouse space or an airplane hangar and are living amongst their projects. I've actually seen some pretty cool pads!

Gotta be a bachelor though...

Alright, all of it's done. Just need to get my fenders rolled. Fine tune the ride height, and then get an alignment.

It's 18x9 front and 18x10 in back. 275/35-18 and 285/35-18 in back. One of those preset tire packages. Next summer I'm changing them out to 265s and 305s

Not really. Eventually I plan to do an SLA conversion, then I'll be running 315s in the front.

Looks good man really good. Too bad the supercharger fell through, but when you finally do power up, you'll be able to hook like a mofo!!

Congrats

Are you getting a lot of oversteer? Cause that setup is gonna understeer pretty bad

Before I got the staggered set up it was on the oversteer side. Then after some of the suspension and staggered set up it was on the understeer side. So with the coilovers and some negative camber as well as maybe .5 degrees of toe out it should help with turn in.

I had some pretty bad understeer when I went to my 255/315 staggered setup and that was with toe set at +.07 in front and +.10 in rear. As soon as I started giving throttle input it would start going straight and turning the steering wheel further did very little to help. It handled awesome when I was on my 255 square setup.

So I just have to say these coilovers are amazing. After I got the alignment I began to test it out, so yanking the steering wheel a little bit at a simple red light turn. Just going to slowly start pushing it more and more until I can find it's limit again.

For the alignment I had it put around +5.5 Castor
-1.5 Camber
A little toe out.

I can definitely feel a difference

Time for those R888s!!!

Just wait until you get in a long sweeper and turn the whee, the mid turn steering response that a little toe out provides is amazing.

I don't know that I saw it, but what spring rates did you go with and how is the ride?

375lb front and 250lb rear. Still messing with the firmness of the shocks and struts. Definitely a stiffer ride, but body roll is gone, responds great to turn in from what I've noticed.
