240sx urethane flares. Hard to find - mine were shipped over from hungary, of all places. Fiberglass ones are a bit cheaper and much more common.

Re: "Ray's AKA demonfire's XR4Ti build up"

Yeah, turbocoupe. The car is pretty balanced, the front will lock up before the rears but that's normal and preferable when threshold braking (at least for me). And edit: Got my power back. Timing had indeed jumped so i changed the belt / tensioner and did index the cam to crank to aux with a paint ...

Re: We bought our first xr. Autox/street machine in the maki

Wheel bearings are a wear item, I inspect mine each winter and I've only gone thru 2 sets in 8 years - so you might have some other issue going on. Lower control arms are horizontal - I had the car lower by an inch last season - I didn't like the handling characteristics. Also, remember my ride heig...

Re: We bought our first xr. Autox/street machine in the maki

V8 is going to put you in XP - i would have gone that route if nothing but for the noise, but CP in my area is like a brotherhood of friends. I'm very, very happy with the suspension setup on my car right now. I want to lower the rear geometry without lowering the car more (she's already very, very ...

Re: Project Shell Game Part 302

Oh, that's gotta sound amazing.

Regarding the tune - are you sure it's the chip? Sometimes if the front o2 sensor fails the car goes into a panic mode and just dumps ALL THE FUEL.

Re: We bought our first xr. Autox/street machine in the maki

What class are you running in? Sounds like it's time for a little bit a wider wheel and new shoes. I am running 245/40/17 right now - rather like that size.

Re: We bought our first xr. Autox/street machine in the maki

Sounds like you hate the NT01's - a few of my friends run those both for track days and autoX and like them a lot. Are you sure they're the issue? What symptoms are you having with them?

Re: We bought our first xr. Autox/street machine in the maki

Yeah, most of the pictures are coming up with a dash instead of the image.

Refresh my mind - what is your current spring rate / damping rate on the car? I think you'll like losing the front ARB and going to comp. struts.

Re: "Ray's AKA demonfire's XR4Ti build up"

I haven't touched the suspension. Currently looking into ways to lower rear roll center without lowering car any more. I'm going to index the timing belt in reference to the distributor pulley / cam pulley with a paint pen, and just keep an eye on them both a few times a season. Easy enough. Oh, bec...

Re: "Ray's AKA demonfire's XR4Ti build up"

So after a quick search, apparently it's common for the square teeth to jump time on higher powered cars. Live and learn. Some pictures from the last event. Took home a win, but the car was probably 50-60hp and 80-90ft lbs (or more) down on power due to the cam timing being off. http://i2.wp.com/www...

Re: "Ray's AKA demonfire's XR4Ti build up"

Car's been feeling down on power all season. Couldn't place it. I pulled 1 degree of timing and added 3 points in fuel under low rpm high load (100kPa up, 2300-3600) but that shouldn't have taken my car's ability to melt tires away. So after yesterday's autocross (first in class but the class was ti...
