Re: oem lsd rebuild kit

Def do a write up if you have time. Its always interesting to see people set up rear ends. Check out runningfree on youtube, its a pretty good representation on what needs to be done.

Re: 4age with 272 cams and carbs

You sure your accelerator pump is working? sounds like a flat spot from instant flooring. Again I would double check that you have spark and that it isn't blowing out/losing spark at that rpm/load. Idle jets shouldn't have anything to do that rpm. What's your whole set up? Pictures would be cool as ...

Re: 4age with 272 cams and carbs

Re: AE86 Cusco 6 Pt with Carbon Fiber Doors

To be honest, the ae's stock doors wouldn't be much safer than the carbon fiber doors if you were t-boned. The metal isn't too thick and doesn't have a real support behind the door skin. If you're taking passengers, a newer car would be much safer/practical. Personal opinion though. I've seen countl...

Re: Hood pins

My stock hood latch failed at one time. I blame it on the latch not locking down probably due to it being a tad tweaked, it flew up at 15mph, enough to bend the hood, roof, and hindges. Even with properly working hood latches id get hood pins if the car will be driven on track or any spirited driving.

What do you mostly use your vehicle for?

currently just street use, until I dial in the suspension a tad more, then it'll primarily be used for open lapping days.
