they never do, you hit the bumpstops, or in your case you'll be on them soon enough, which makes them very dangerous.

That tends to result in you destroying the damper internals instead, you'd be better off fitting longer, softer, polyurethane foam bumpstops.

Excellent thread.

I've got the same suspension setup matey, and in my opinion it's fine for normal drivign but gets seriously under-steery on the throttle when turning relatively sharpish - but it would do this even if i were at standard ride height or lowered 40mm.

I think you should put smaller wheels on, as they make your callipers/discs look piddley.

When i start earning some money the suspension is defo going to be uprated, but retain the 60mm drop as i think it looks awesome.

15x7 with 205/50/15s look mega with a 60mm drop Cool

i went down to the unit yesterday to sort out my magnex exhaust as it was leaking and found this



all around the front of the back box the weld came apart

so roni got his welding skills out.




wilst i was there i uncovered the engine and decided to give it a bit of paint

where from and how much was that?

Looks like a pro built megasquirt?


just another thought, possibly a bit late now, but there's no space for decent cams in the standard pistons....

it came as a whole package with the jenveys for a grand

you are correct it is megasquirt

i was told that the cams i have are the same as pt81s but just a different make. theres a few people that are running them with standard pistons, but as my head has been skimmed and the block has been decked it maybe a bit close. i will investigate that when the head is together.

is there a certain way to test if the valves hit the pistons or is it just a put together, turn the crank and listen for the tunes?
