-sold the tokico setup a while ago.
-sold 01 with stock suspension. now the car is on racelands but I have stock suspension too.
-xidas are on Marcello's car, which is with me for a bunch of installs and tuning.

So the question is: raising and keeping racelands vs installing stock nb suspension. which is the lesser of two evils? This is 100% street car.

I'm pretty set on going back to stock, but don't remember how racelands feel when at non-slammed ride height, which is why I even wonder.
I guess I can test this since it would only take like 5 min to raise em before removing

I definitely can't drive the car this slammed. So embarrassing having to worry if I will high side on a speed bump. I'm not about dat layfe lol

I prefer ricelands to stock 130K blown NA ****, YMMV...

Rear damping is non-existent. Wheel hop galore, bumpstops a few times after hard bumps, mid corner bumps liable to kill you....

Yeah, this is like 60k mile really lightly used NB suspension. It should be decent for DD duty

Have you looked at the FEAL suspension Goodwin Racing has? They have a DD version of them and I have heard a few good things about them. Sell the Ricelands and put the money towards the Feals.

Yeah there's a ton of great options out there, I'm just not sure I want to start modding this car again. I think I'm gonna keep it a comfy daily driver for now, get all the maint out of the way and go from there.

Started installing the stock suspension yesterday, realized it's missing the little washers above the bump stops (item 10 In the diagram). Asked PO to look around and see if he still has them laying around somewhere. If not I guess I'll get some from my bro.



Car's getting fresh Rotella T6, possibly new brake pads, etc.

I think it needs a nice big muffler and a t3 turbo sitting in front of it. Not saying I know a guy with any for sale or anything, but there might even be a mod discount.

Larsy, like I told Gordon, once I'm bored with the car being stock we'll talk.

If you can't find any, I think I still have a full set from my Bilstein coilover conversion.

It is probably a 2-3 month lead at this moment on my end. So he has a little bit of time. He also needs to follow these instructions to make sure he does things properly.

1. MS3X and a wideband. Learn to tune naturally aspirated.
2. Install larger injectors, ID1000's or bust. Then retune fuel.
3. Install better clutch. FM or ACT are the only brands to go with.
4. Install turbo setup. Tune fuel to not blow up your engine.
5. Profit.

Are you sure bro?
All of that sounds foreign to me, I was gonna run a power card on an OBX-R Enchilada-tostada manifold and remote mount the oil drain to cool the diff
