No, Ben Martinez had it custom made and gave it to me last winter.

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

No, ordered from bilstein with compression/ rebound rates changed based on the cars weight, spring rates, etc. the JVAB ones are a great alternative but a bit softer than this car's purpose (not valved for springs this heavy / track use only / etc) Just a note: The JVABs are valved and made to leng...

Re: Project Shell Game Part 302

Awesome progress! I wonder what cracked the ears on the manifold? You could probably TIG those back together.

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

Cool, damp autocross Sunday. Temps hovered around 50 with light, misting rain most of the day. Got 1 solid dry-ish run in, enough to secure 2nd in class out of 6, and 7th overall. I'm in a pretty fast region, so 7th overall, in the wet, is something I'm rather proud of. Still impressed with the new ...

Have any videos?

I really should start doing videos. I made a few remarks to a fellow autocrosser (runs in FP) and he records most of his runs just to learn from them, get a better line, etc. Something i should probably start doing.

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

Would that i could make it, with this marking year 4 in a row, i'm on travel for work the week after. With a strange irony, i'll be 1 hour from carlisle 2 days later, but i have to take my work truck / soil demonstration stuff. I've been chatting with Anglin a little bit - about making these for us ...

Re: 20+years later..Keeps going&going&going..get the picture

I agree - XR's tend to look best in white, but that red isn't bad at all. Body looks in great shape.

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

Since i'm getting a lot of questions on Facebook and i want to keep everything searchable (don't let the forums die! they are a better way to research). Current suspension setup with alignment specifications: Front: Spring Rate - hypercoil 600lb/in, 2.5" ID, 9" tall (I think i have to check my notes...

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

I do wonder, but it's one of those things - looking at the car there is no real noticable sway at all and if i finally found my sweet spot i dont want to throw good money after parts that might not make me any faster. A blade bar was something i was going to work on (with Anglin) if i had a lot of b...

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

A few pics - notice how planted the car is with no sway bars - no body roll that was noticeable at all. Bonus points, I did spin once. http://i1.wp.com/www.cartct.com/beta/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/2J1A2145.jpg http://i0.wp.com/www.cartct.com/beta/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/2J1A2146.jpg Hard right ...

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

First points event was yesterday. Temps started in the mid 40's and rose to mid 70's. Sunny. Pavement temps were good. Thoughts: The new setup is a win. I am not going back to a sway bar. Corner entry was drastically improved. There is little discernible corner entry understeer, which plagued me sin...

Re: Compression Strut Install

There no longer are anti-roll bars on the car. The chassis brace was reinstalled. At least I think I put it back in. I should check on that. :lol:
