Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

225 45 15 under a stock fender that is lightly rolled. I'm amazed it fit so well. Wish the PO circle track guys wouldn't have cut off the rear arches.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I have the zx transmission now. It has the gears below with .745 overdrive and I love it. At 8000 in 4th with my 4.44 gears I am doing 197kmph...yes it lays down in 5th but I don't need to go much faster. I will take the lower rpm on the highway and just have to be on the ball and downshift early w...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I did have a transmission once with that .759, hated it for racing ( hillclimbs) Even with 20" tall race tires and the revs up there, when I would go to 5th at the hillclimb, the car just laid down, felt like a wet dish rag. That 5th gear set up is only if you really want and can pull some top...

Re: 2.3L of fun

SPECIFICATIONS: Included: 5 gears kit and Strengthened Mai...

Re: 2.3L of fun

What are the your gear ratio's Keith? They make close ratio gear sets for the SR trans which is pretty easy to adapt to an L series motor. I looked into the ratio's. Not much improvement in my mind on our track layout. They look to be made more for road racing.

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

205 50's on the zero offset wheels. If I had zx struts they would fit perfect. Which I do out in my shed. The back is the issue. Me and Sam have just been super busy with our racecar project and redesigning the front stuff. Soon it will get some sweet rear suspension.

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

Way back in the day a local guy said he was able to open up a subi R160 LSD and add the bolt retainers. It's been years and I can't remember which diff it was. Maybe that one? I've pulled the threaded, splined cap out before and put them in later K R180's.

Re: "Hey" my daily driven race car!

Where is the clunk coming from? I had a bad shock bushing once, that you could not see, but, on a good bump it thumped. Clunk is unfindable! I got some axles rebuilt, hopefully that solves the issue. I jacked it up twice over the weekend. I can pry the control arm around with my pry bar but not eas...

Re: moar good videos :P

Can't blame them for that engine. It's pretty amazing. 11.5 to 1 compression factory! That guy I race against has a stock bottom end full boost he makes 710 WHP at 32 PSI on E85. Nuts!

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

I thought the VE's needed mega valve reliefs in the pistons. I read VE pistons in DE alright DE pistons in VE valve hit? Maybe I'm just remembering things wrong. I never thought about how to engage the big cams to check clearance?

Re: Sticky, wide, 13" and 14" tires - Toyo Proxes R888

Once you have tires with good grip you never want anything else. If you don't daily it or drive it in the rain what is the issue?
