Thanks all. Car fired right up and drove smooth this morning.

I love this thing.

Oh: and I love this seat. I'm short so I easily pass the broomstick test even with the sliders, and it's super super comfortable. It was a total pain in the *** and if I had to do it again I'd just get an SPG, but I'm happy with how it came out. Still need to finish the pieces needed to get the sliders operational though...

Bros I need halps.

One of my 949 end links came loose. I have everything I need to put it back on except one of those funky tapered spacers.

Anyone have a spare they can bring to mrls? I have a stock end link on that side now but would like to put the 949 back on.

Also, I don't seem to have any HANS helmet anchors. Ooops.

Its a misalignment spacer. nevermind, they are slightly different, carry on. Call some offroad shops in the area they usually carry them.

Email 949 and see if they have left yet, and if they can bring you one. SOMEONE will have spares. Unfortunately, I do not. :(

PM Gesso about the rear view mirror, I seem to remember there being a non running NB in his garage. If you ask real nice you might be able to convince him to loan it to you.

HANS anchors... like attached to the helmet itself? If you can find it on Amazon with Prime I can get it shipped overnight to my place. LMK.

If someone can remind me later, I'll grab the mirror from my NB for you.

Or you can stop at Wine Country Motorsports on the way down. They're in the paddock at Sears Point in Sonoma, about 15 minutes east of 101.

Thats the store I was thinking of actually. I briefly looked on prime and didn't see any right away. Somone else could try harder though.

Vlad are you coming to brunch/Track

Thanks for the help guys. I did email Emilio first thing and all he replied with (literally ALL he replied with, no words) was a link to the end link parts page on their website. Yup that won't do me much good right now.

Sounds like I'll have it all covered thanks to all you awesome folks. Vlad when are you coming down? If you have one I can buy I'd prefer that over just borrowing Gesso's.

Car feels absolutely fantastic, though my boost solenoid doesn't seem to be working. Maybe it's my janky power source. Will check fuses.

No fuses for that. Not sure if you switched power sources, but as long as the signal wire is plugged in, slide it into the 12v in the diag box and it'll work.

That looks like the double nuts weren't locked down, but then there are no threads below the nuts. Did the lower spring perch unscrew or something? I've never assembled a set of xidas so I have no idea how it goes together.
