Here are the old pictures and how it looks now. We will keep you updated. http://i.imgur.com/ZDXkAeE.jpg h...

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

Jeff, how would having Byron's brackets affect the use of your system? We will know more when the prototypes are done. I have Byron's brackets in my car. Raising the pivot should help with anti-squat but gotta check and see what it does to toe change. Jeff, With your design, toe can be easily chang...

Re: SR20DE swap

Yes, the S14/S15 Engines are 99% the same, really the only difference is the bolts on valve cover-- the S14 uses studs and nuts, and the S15 uses thru bolts. The rest of the difference is in the tuning in the ECU which gives 5 more PS ~4-5hp, hence the 165 PS rating on the S15 engines. Michael Good...

Aren't the S14 and S15 NA SR's the same? Unless you find one of those rare Autech SR's?

Re: SR20DE swap

I love my NA SR swap! The motor was originally purchased from Up Garage back when they still imported motors. I'm amazed at the abuse it can handle. As far as install its the same as the KA.

Re: LSD Break Away Touque...??

Byron did you feel your R190 had a slow ramp up? I feel like sometimes mine doesn't lock up. Kinda lame.

The SR I weighted is a S15 spec R so it has the dual disk clutch which maybe why the weights are so close. It's a heavy bastard!

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

He's an SCCA dude, they are super competitive and are hard to beat! The kinda guys who don't daily th...

Re: wipe your face gas cars!

fastest car on paper I guess since they have no recorded top speed. They will have to beat the new leader who had an averaged 277 mph on a race course in Nevada this year. Even if they don't win top speed 8.8 in the quarter is a win, with a factory warranty. Top speed to me is dumb, no room or plac...

Re: wipe your face gas cars!

That's body shops that take forever to do repairs not the repair centers, aluminum body has its drawbacks I guess. My brother works at the Seattle repair center, they normally get the cars in and out really fast. My brother's team almost beat the motor swap record when they went in for training. The...
