whats wrong with these?


Recommended Posts

2.5" is like 60mm! That's plenty. Any more and the car would simply be undrivable.

 

This is the sort of thing you get with Ground Control....

 

Baring in mind this car is tricked out with Powertrix adjustable geometry and some cool spacers. Something you'll need, well, you'll need the adjustable camber arms, tension rods and some new shocks. KYB AGX are the recommended.

I'd budget for the following if you want to do the job properly if you don't, you won't get the look you won't AND you'll get terrible tyre wear.

 

GC coilvers £250

KYB AGX shocks : £300

Powertrix adjustable front camber arms : £200

Powertrix adjustable tension rods : £120

Powertrix adjustable rear camber arms : £150

Full laser geometry setup (castor/camber) £120

 

Total = £1140 this won't include the fitting of them either. Make sure you budget around that amount.

You probably want to go somewhere between the two guys above. Wozza can't get his car over a match :rofl: and Si just wants to get the looks right.

 

Thing is not to scrimp on this product. As silverbullet about some of his products, do a search and you will find some pictures of broken bits.

 

As for the brakes there are several options,

 

refurbish the ones you have with good pads and disks,

Get a big brake conversion from smithy

GTR 33,34 skyline brembo callipers and sundries.

One of the very big brake kits that you can find on the web.

Yep they would do. Andy used to be a trader on here as well so has a fairly good rep. You need to ask how many miles they have done etc though.

 

You never know he may have all the other stuff off the same car as well.

Good price those! Darn! They came at the wrong time for me. If I hadn't just fitted my Tein S-techs, I'd have had those like a shot.

 

You can at least start to amass parts. It's something I do. Just buy things in dribs and drabs then when you have everything, go ahead and fit it! :D

This is all your fault cooper-swb

 

Driving behind you that day I could see how much better it went round corner, then when you brake I really had to slam the brakes on as I thought I was gonna go into the back of you!:tongue:

I only have the skyline brembo callipers on mine which to be fair are better than the stock. I do still however have a vibratio problem under breaking which I need to sort out still. Bushes or bearings I think.

 

Mine might go round corners but I do have to visit the dentist on a regular basis as it seems to rattle me fillings out on these great roads of ours. :D

 

Good luck sorting the stuff out.

 

I will keep an eye out on ebay for you.
