Not yet. We should have that sorted out within a few weeks. Our goal is to have them at Canby. So 10 weeks latest. I started messing with the 300zx stuff. farther down the rabbit hole! haha

That is a lot of orange RTV.

Have you guys had a chance to measure real life bump steer yet?

haha Yeah that is a lot of RTV! Kinda funny all I use is Honda bond, I find a pic of a honda and its using orange RTV haha.

I tried to do bump at my brothers work but his alignment rack was being dumb. So I don't trust my readings. Even though they looked decent. We plan on doing the bump test this week. I've just been procrastinating on taking my car apart again. I need to get to work on it though, got a race the 15th!

There really isn't much pan, especially at the rear.

What he asked♤....I would be very interested if this worked with a rear sump. I'm going to be in need of a solution in the near future....
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Nope it's front sump only. The good news is the late style 510 pan cleared with slightly tapping in one corner on Sam's goon if you want to keep it L series. We will have some ready buy Canby.

BOOOOOO, I have the comp pan. There is no room between it and the cross-member.

Yeah I know a rear sump version would have been cool but I'm never ever ever going to run an L series car and Sam has one so he understands my reasoning. Since neither of us want to invest the time we aren't going to move forward with it. Really besides already having a bad ass pan there are no reasons that make front sump better or worse than rear sump.
